For the first time in Canada, a life-sized version of the pink 1957 Chevy Corvette styled for Barbie will be coming to Toronto for the 2024 Canadian International AutoShow.
Inspired by the iconic pink Corvette in the live-action Barbie movie, the real-life convertible has a “pure eye candy pink paint job and a curvy, retro silhouette.”
For you car enthusiasts, you may be interested to know that the care features a 283 V8 motor; an interior by Action, instrument cluster, custom upholstery on seats, door panels, and carpeting; a custom wrap by One11ink; paint and exteriors designed by Action Vehicle Engineering Inc., and much more.
“We are excited to welcome Mattel back to the show with Barbie and Hot Wheels, two beloved brands with an appeal that spans generations,” said Jason Campbell, General Manager of the AutoShow.
“Showcasing full-sized versions inspired by some of their iconic cars is a chance for adults to reconnect with their childhood, and share that passion with their children.”
Along with the Barbie car, there will also be life-sized replicas of four iconic Hot Wheels toy cars, including the Deora II, Green Loop Coupe, Gray Loop Coupe, and 1967 Chevrolet Camaro.
And that’s not all! Staying in the Barbie theme, the display will also include a life-size Barbie Box that guests can hop inside and snap pictures.
“Barbie and Hot Wheels are both beloved brands that have ignited passion and imagination across generations,” says Donna Polimac, Senior Manager Marketing of Mattel.
“We are thrilled for the AutoShow to be the first Canadian pit stop to welcome a vehicle inspired by Barbie’s legendary Corvette! Most importantly, for all car lovers, car collectors and guests alike, to re-engage with the toys they love through a new lens and for young children, to be reminded they can dream of becoming anything.”
The 2024 Canadian International AutoShow will take place on February 16th to 25th at the Metro Toronto Convention Centre.
