The 2012 Hot Wheels Rip Rod is a hot rod that appears in the Hot Wheels Expansion for Forza Horizon 3.

The Rip Rod is a real life recreation of a Hot Wheels toy car built in collaboration by Ford, Mattel and Bandito Brothers. It was first introduced as a show car at the 2012 SEMA tuning car show and was later made drivable using a one litre Ecoboost engine supplied by Ford.[1]


Is it a buggy? It is a hot rod? It doesn’t matter what you call the Rip Rod because this diminutive Hot Wheels ride is ready to shake things up on any surface. This beast is equipped with a souped-up two-cylinder [sic] motor that makes better than 100 hp. While that might not seem like much, in this rod, it is more than enough to thrill (or spill depending on your skills behind the wheel). One look at the suspension tells you this tricked out custom is ready for any terrain. This is a super lightweight tube chassis pro-built machine and it’s all Hot Wheels. In short, the Rip Rod really rips.
