Honda Super Tuner Legends Series Joins Hot Wheels™ Legends Tour

  • Honda Super Tuner Legends Series debuts May 18 in El Segundo with stops in Denver (Aug. 10), Seattle (Aug. 24) and Santa Clarita (Oct. 19)
  • One vehicle will earn the “Honda Super Tuner” title and an opportunity to be on display at the 2019 SEMA Show in Las Vegas

Honda will bring the excitement of Honda tuner vehicles to the second annual Hot Wheels™ Legends Tour, a national search for a life-size custom car worthy of being immortalized as a Hot Wheels toy car. The Honda Super Tuner Legends Series, the exclusive live custom tuner component of the Legends Tour, will be making select stops beginning on Sat., May 18 at the Mattel headquarters in El Segundo, Calif., followed by stops in Denver (Aug. 10), Seattle (Aug. 24) and Santa Clarita, Calif. (Oct. 19).

The Honda Super Tuner Legends Series will add a tuner component to the 2019 Hot Wheels Legends Tour, with a panel of expert judges selecting one Honda vehicle from each stop as a Honda Super Tuner Finalist. The four finalists will compete for the “Honda Super Tuner” title, which includes the opportunity to have their vehicle displayed at the SEMA Show, the industry’s premier automotive specialty products trade event, in Las Vegas, November 5-8, 2019.

All three Honda Super Tuner Legends Series stops following the kick-off event in El Segundo will take place at Walmart store parking lots as part of the Hot Wheels Legends Tour. This will give attendees the chance to learn about Honda’s history with Hot Wheels, showcase some of the most interesting Honda tuner vehicles in each region, pick up a reusable Honda tote and check out Honda’s exclusive Civic Type R that was featured at Honda’s 2018 SEMA exhibit.

Hot Wheels™ Legends Tour 
The first-ever Hot Wheels Legends Tour was held in 2018 to commemorate the toy car’s 50th anniversary and drew in more than 3,600 cars and 65,000 fans. Hot Wheels aficionados from across the country entered their life-size custom cars in the hope of it being the winning vehicle chosen to be made into a Hot Wheels toy car. This year, Hot Wheels has partnered with brands including Honda, Mobil 1, Dickies, Microsoft Xbox and Mechanix, expanding the Legends Tour to include more than 18 stops throughout the country at Walmart stores in cities with deep-rooted ties to car culture. Full details on the Hot Wheels Legends Tour can be found at:

Honda vehicles are favorites of car enthusiasts and the tuner crowd – owners who customize their vehicles with top-of-the line enhancements. The company has celebrated this relationship at SEMA and other exhibitions and rallies, honoring those who make Honda vehicles an expression of their unique personality. This commitment includes the creation of Honda Genuine Accessories that offer vehicle owners the ability to personalize their builds, while enhancing appearance, performance and functionality.

Honda and Hot Wheels™
For nearly two decades, Honda and Hot Wheels have partnered to design dozens of Honda Hot Wheels toys, including 20 currently in production. In 2018, Hot Wheels released a series of eight iconic 1:64 scaled die-cast Honda Hot Wheels toys, including the Honda CR-X, ’90 Honda Civic EF, Honda Civic Coupe, Honda Civic Si, Honda Monkey Z50, Honda Racer 5, Honda S2000 and Honda Odyssey.

Virtual Tour of the Honda Museum

Have you ever wanted to take a tour of the Honda Museum in Japan but can’t afford the plane ticket?

Well, now you can. A virtual tour, anyway.

According to this article on, “In addition to a modest gift shop, café, and archive room, the first floor also features a special section dedicated to Asimo. Here, Honda shows no fewer than 12 evolutionary steps it took to produce the ultimate live-in assistant. Alongside Asimo is a display dedicated to the Honda FCX Clarity fuel cell vehicle. There’s plenty to see on the second floor, whether you’re a fan of Honda’s two or four-wheeled vehicles. Included among the collection of cars are the NSX, an Accord station wagon, a first-generation Honda Prelude, and the Civic. One wall is even dominated by Honda’s collection of lawn mowers. Finally, the third floor is dedicated to the automaker’s motorsports heritage. There, you’ll find a 1990 McLaren Honda MP4/5B, which Ayrton Senna raced (and won) in a number of GPs.”

So if you’ve ever wanted to see all that the Honda museum has to offer but don’t have the vacation time, check out the virtual tour!
