Flashfire – The formerly long lost Stainless Hot Wheels car!

FlashFire – The Stainless Mattel Car

By now you should know the story behind this car; 22 years ago, during the late development of Carmageddon 2 Stainless decided to create a few quick items for the game in order to pitch an idea to Mattel in the hopes that they would be able to create a licensed Hot Wheels game with them, to cut a long story short Mattel weren’t having any of it and said no, this model was left on the cutting room floor until 2014 when Errol shared his goodies with myself and Toshiba-3, in these goodies were this model for the Hot Wheels pitch.




Flashfire – The Stainless Mattel Car


Original Model by Stainless Software
Everything else by Razor

This car was created by Stainless back in 1998 alongside ‘Hotroom’ as part of their pitch to Mattel to create a Hot Wheels game, it has been laying dormant on hard drives of Errol’s until now! He shared a bunch of in-dev goodies and a model of this Mattel car was in there!

It was just a model but contained everything a C2 car should, it just needed completing!

I textured it based on the real toy car ‘Flashfire’ (a 1998 HotWheels issue of the toy) that the vehicle was modelled after, set it all up and am releasing it to the world! AT LAST!

I have tried to make this car as close to the default C2 lineup as possible, it is feature complete and should fit right in with the rest of the vehicles in the vanilla game, even the textures are in blurry 1998 fashion!!


Install it as you would any other C2 car.

Remember, this vehicle is best used in it’s home, Hotroom!! Also remember that this is not compatible with the previous version of this vehicle that I released, it will overwrite it.
