If you played with Hot Wheels as a kid (or as an adult, as some on the Autoblog team have admitted to doing), then you've probably imagined what it would be like to have the thing in full size. Chevrolet has tried to make that a reality, creating a Camaro concept car inspired by the "Custom Camaro" 1/64-scale model that was part of the original Hot Wheels collection released in 1968.

Making its debut at SEMA today, the Camaro Hot Wheels Concept features chrome green paint, ghosted Hot Wheels logos on the fenders, satin black wheels, a Euro-style rear fascia and taillights and black aluminum hood insert with milled heat extractors. Under the hood is the standard LS3 V8.

You can read a full list of the car's features after the jump, and be sure to check out our live photos in the gallery above.

      This car is full of tiny details. I like how they cut out part of the rear bumper that used to separate the quad rear lights, so now it has just two, I think it looks a bit better this way.

        good eye! I think the taillights look better, too. They look more like the original Camaro's lights now. Cleaner, too, with more space for LED patterns.

      I have to smile. That's a really cool car. Too bad it's a GM product, because I'll never purchase any product from any company that has used government muscle to break commercial bankruptcy law and change the legal priority of bondholders. It's potentially a desirable product, but then criminal enterprises produce a lot of desirable products.

        I can't wait for people like you and Charles to stop referring to it as "Government Motors". These have to be the most ignorant posts in the whole article.

      I love that car! A special edition Camaro I would actually buy; this car should come with, or have optional, the ZL1 powertrain not just the exterior trim parts.

        Again? This hasn't been shown before today. By the way, this wasn't the ZR-1 because it's a Camaro, not a Corvette. There's your answer.

        You're thinking of ZL1.
