Hot Wheels' HSV display car

Anyone who's been to an auto show knows that even the displays belonging to non-manufacturers usually have some kind of flashy car featured as the centerpiece. After all, a sweet ride is an easy way to get foot traffic into your booth, and really, that's the name of the game. You want to get as many eyeballs on your goods as possible. This week at the Melbourne International Motor Show, Hot Wheels has turned to one of the locals -- in this case, HSV -- to deliver the desired traffic magnet.

The recipe looks pretty simple: take one HSV GTS, add a Hot Wheels wrap treatment to the bodywork, and presto: instant big boy toy to complement the rest of the playthings on display.
