Photos From the 2019 Dakar Rally - The Atlantic
With a ceremonial start in Lima, Peru, on January 7, a group of 334 competitors started the 41st annual Dakar Rally: a 10-day, 3,000-mile (5,000 kilometer) off-roading adventure held exclusively in Peru this year. The vehicles—which include specialized cars, trucks, motorcycles, and quad bikes—are currently on stage 9 of 10 stages that travel south to Tacna, then back to Lima on January 17. Here is a look at Dakar 2019 in progress, as teams race to the finish line.

A stellar R32 Skyline kicks off the Car Culture-inspired Fast & Furious line – theLamleyGroup
Duh. This is how it should have always been.
It just seems perfect. A Hot Wheels Fast & Furious Premium line. Seems like we should be in at least year five of this. But it was worth the wait. Five years ago, it would have been the same cars that we saw repeated over and over again in the Walmart lines: existing castings done up in FnF decos.
In order to get what just debuted, we needed Car Culture to thrive first. Mattel and retailers needed to see how successful a collector-aimed premium line with a wide variety of models in realistic decos could do. And what they have seen is a line that continues to sell and sell well.
That set the stage for what is essentially an extension of Car Culture. Featuring cars from the Fast & Furious universe means a wide variety of cars, from muscle to JDM to Euro to Supercars from stock to classic. It’s like a microcosm of Car Culture.
And here we have Mix 1, called Fast Imports, with several themed assortments to follow. It is easy to note that Fast Imports is heavy on JDM, but I think there is a more interesting way to look at it. Two of the cars are distinctly FnF. The R34 and S15 sport decos that were specific to the movie, and have become iconic in their own right. The other three could pass in ANY Hot Wheels line. A black R32, stock Lamborghini, and classic Escort. And that is what makes this line so cool.
