Hot Wheels released 1:50 caricature models of the ’01 Acura Integra R, ’99 Honda Civic Si (2 door coupe) and ’02 Honda Civic Si (EP3) Hatchback. All models are decorated with aftermarket manufacturer decals. The models come in a “Hot Tunerz” and the later “Car Tunerz” carded blister cards with the car resting on a silver base that is shaped like the front of a car. The rear of the card is unique to even the specific color of the model – with the exception of the red version that shares the silver car’s packaging.
The Civic Coupe came in silver, blue, red, green and chrome.
