This car is quite literally a treasure for Hot Wheels collectors.

Collector Number 271

This rarest model Hot Wheels car from the 90s is worth around $3500. Officials could verify this model as authentic if you have the packaging.

Only 7 Collector Number 271 cars have been officially authenticated, leaving five out there unauthenticated.

1970 Red Baron

1970 Red Baron

The original design of this car features capped redline wheels and a spectraflame red paint. The 1970 Red Baron's estimated worth is around $4000 max. 

Other versions of the 1970 Red Baron have been authenticated with a white interior instead of black, and only a handful exist.

1970 Green Open Fire

1970 Green Open Fire

The pretty metallic green car with an open engine sold for a whopping $4000. You wouldn't think Mattel would model something so elegant as a toy. 

Its extra wheels with red lines give it a distinct feature over other toy cars.

1969 Brown '31 Woody

This adorable little jeepney sells for $5200 in mint condition. Its unique brown color is unusually seen in today's jeeps.

Redline Classic Cord

Redline Classic Cord

The Redline Classic Cord car was designed with luxury collectors in mind; its price is around $6600. This specific model could sell higher in the appropriate color. 

This car was inspired by the 1937 Cord 812, known for its exposed engine finish and stylish fenders.

1974 Blue Rodger Dodger

1974 Blue Rodger Dodger

Only seven of this kind are rumored to be a UK exclusive, making it oh-so-rare. This Hot wheels 1974 Blue Rodger Dodger could set you back around $8,000, which doesn't sound so bad. 

An English collector owns all seven existing models. The toy is based on a 1973 Dodger Charger SE in an enamel plum color with a black interior.

1970 Ed Shaver AMX

1970 Ed Shaver AMX

This particular model of Hot Wheels was exclusive in the United Kingdom, and the only color produced was blue. Only a few models exist today, retailing for around $10000. 

Ira Gilford designed this particular model. A custom model was released to commemorate Mattel's partnership with Ed Shaver.

1968 Python With "Cheetah" Base

1968 Python With "Cheetah" Base

This model is orange, which is rare enough, but if you look under the car, you'll see the word 'Cheetah' under it—resulting in one of nine made. If you find one in the rare orange paint, it may cost an estimated $10000. 

Several variants today include a rainbow international version, but red Hong Kong is the most typical.

1969 Brown Custom Charger

1969 Brown Custom Charger

Hot Wheels always excels in bright, fun, and funky colors, but it's always notable when they produce a rarer color like brown. Rumor has it that this brown car is a prototype for future models, costing you around $13000. 

Brown isn't a standard color for muscle cars, which is desirable enough to appreciate this brown custom charger car today.

1970 Mad Maverick

1970 Mad Maverick

The 1970 Mad Maverick is modeled after the 1969 Ford Maverick. After its debut in 1970, Mattel stopped producing this car in 1977. Collectors truly go 'mad' for this model, that's why it slaps a $13000 price.

Mad Maverick cars have that name underneath, which soon changed to the Mighty Maverick before its public debut due to trademark issues.

1968 Over Chrome Camaro

1968 Over Chrome Camaro

Only two of these Over Chrome Camaro models exist. They got produced to support advertising campaigns and are great for your collection. The Camaro is rarer among other variants, and in good condition, it could snatch $25000.

1968 Over Chrome Mustang

1968 Over Chrome Mustang

Only two 1968 Over Chrome Mustangs exist, produced for ad purposes. A pristine model could go for $40000. Several notable features of this muscle car include a pop-up hood showing a perfectly recreated engine and tinted windows.

Rumor has it that a private seller acquired these models, and another collector, Ralph Antone, owns a rarer color.

Tesla Cybertruck with Elon Musk's Signature

Tesla Cybertruck with Elon Musk's Signature

Mattel produced a limited, premium edition of Elon Musks's Tesla Cybertruck. He signed the miniature Hot Wheels model and Beckett's authenticity certificate. The auction price is $49999 with an additional $1999 shipping cost.

The Tesla Cybertruck, set to debut sometime in 2023, is made of thick stainless steel, ensuring resistance to dents, corrosion, and many more.

Cash Money

Cash Money

The Diamond Encrusted Hot Wheels car is the most expensive car ever made, but it's not the most expensive one on this list. Starting at $140000, the car is encrusted with 18-karat diamonds of various natural colors. 

The diamonds weigh about 23 carats each. 40 out of 2700 diamonds are white, each for a year in the legacy of Hot Wheels.

Pink Beach Bomb

Pink Beach Bomb

There are only two 1969 Pink Rear-Loading Volkswagen Beach Bombs existing. All Beach Bombs are rare models, priced around $80000 to $125000, but the Pink Beach Bomb costs a whopping $175000!

Bruce Pascal is the owner of a 1969 Pink Rear-Loading Volkswagen Beach Bomb. The Pink Beach Bomb is a prototype of the Beach Bomb series, in which only 200 were manufactured, making all models rare.

Hot Wheels cars may be toys to others, but they are treasures to collectors. It's incredible to think people would spend oh-so-much for a miniature car model, and it's surprising.
