Collection: Hot Wheels '09 Corvette ZR1 & Ford Mustang Fastback

The Corvette ZR1 is basically the car that is made to go faster than the car its based on, the Corvette C6. Like an E63 AMG to a regular E-Class, or the 430 Scuderia to the F430. Capable of going 0-100km.h in 3.3s, its pretty quick. What I like most about this car is that its able to go round corners as impressively as its straight line speed, which earned the 2009 Performance Car of the Year from Top Gear.

Which is impressive I must say, for an American car. American cars are only known to be good to go quick in the straight lines, and are rubbish round the bends. Which brings us to the other car that gave rise to this reputation, the Ford Mustang Fastback.

Mustangs are exceptional for going in straight lines, and this one is no different. Labelled the Fastback because of the shape of the car by Caroll Shelby, this car was also meant to be the high performance version of the original Ford Mustang.

I got most of these cars of the pegs, which wasn't too hard and the exclusive recolours off a trade with a collector from Singapore.
