MotorTrend Brings Hot Wheels to Life

MotorTrend brings Hot Wheels to life in original short-form series Life Size, streaming now on the MotorTrend App. Professional race car driver and builder Nicole Lyons explores the real-world, full-scale versions of vehicles from the Hot Wheels Garage of Legends, an elite collection of Hot Wheels cars, not only detailing the unique designs but taking the life size version for a test drive.

Bone Shaker

The first episode, “Bone Shaker”, shines the spotlight on what quickly became one of the most beloved, collectable Hot Wheels after debuting in 2006. Bone Shaker was created by the legendary “Mr. Hot Wheels” – Larry Wood, and is an open roof, skull-grilled, spinal-column shifted hot rod. Lyons meets up with Larry Wood at the 2019 Grand National Roadster Show where they discuss Wood’s more than 50 years at Hot Wheels, the influences on Bone Shaker’s design and the subtle difference between the diecast hot rod and the life size version. Finally, Lyons takes the Bone Shaker for a drive, really opening it up so audiences get a sense for what 425 horsepower can do in a 1932 Ford style hot rod.B 

Upcoming episodes premiere Mondays on the MotorTrend App.
