Oscar Mayer's mini Wiener Rover RC car is a very hot toy for this year's holiday season, but you need to move quickly to get one. The company put just 20 of them on sale via Twitter on Cyber Monday, and it announced they sold out less than 10 minutes later. The hot dog maker added 15 more on December 1, and they only lasted a few minutes, too.
Wiener Rover RC is a 1:14 scale model of Oscar Mayer's latest all-terrain version of the Wienermobile. The ones on Twitter retail for $25 with free shipping, and the toy measures 22.5 inches long and 11 inches tall. The company's press release also claims it can reach 30 miles per hour, which makes this a seriously fast sausage. There's even room inside to carry two hot dogs.
If you want to see one of these off-road hot dog trucks zooming across your kitchen floor, there are still a few chances. Oscar Mayer will put up 15 more each day through December 4, according to the description from its YouTube promo video. The quick sales so far might inspire the company to release even more, too.

MADISON, Wis., Nov. 30, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- On July 23, Oscar Mayer introduced the newest addition to its iconic Wienermobile fleet with the creation of the Wiener Rover, an all-terrain hot dog on heavy-duty wheels that delivers hot dogs to fans across the country. Today, just in time for the holidays, the folks at Oscar Mayer unveiled the Mini Wiener Rover – a smaller, remote-controlled Wiener Rover that transports one to two hot dogs and makes a perfect gift for hot dog lovers across the country.
From the kitchen to the backyard barbecue, the Mini Wiener Rover is the perfect vessel to deliver some unexpected food and fun to fans. A unique and exclusive holiday gift, the Mini Wiener Rover will be available starting Monday, November 30 for purchase through Twitter's recently launched Buy Now button for $25, with free shipping and handling.

Riding in at 1:14 the size of the original Wienermobile, the Mini Wiener Rover stands at 11 inches tall and 22.5 inches long (or about 2 hot dogs by 4 hot dogs).
The Mini Wiener Rover is battery operated and driven by remote control, reaching speeds up to 30 miles per hour. Also similar to its original Rover counterpart, the Mini Wiener Rover includes a compartment for the transport of hot dogs, with enough space to fit one to two previously cooked sausages.
