Ford and Bandito Brothers Create 1.0L EcoBoost Hot Wheels Rip Rod
The Hot Wheels Rip Rod, featuring the 1.0L Ford EcoBoost engine, is an evolution of the static project car first seen at SEMA last year on the Ford Motor Company stand and designed and built by Mattel and Bandito Brothers. The 2012 Rip Rod was featured on a trailer pulled by a special Ford Transit Connect with Hot Wheels livery.
The Ford Racing team worked with the Bandito Brothers on the integration of the 1.0L EcoBoost engine. This video captures the journey from static property to running vehicle.
Look out for the new Rip Rod at this year’s SEMA show.
