"Extreme is likely the first word that comes to mind. After all, the Bad to the Blade – a car that looks like it was created in the future – serves up blistering speed and is inspired by a fighter jet and dragon combo. Designed by Hot Wheels’ Fraser Campbell, this Indy car concept was showcased in the Hot Wheels “Fearless at the 500” event to commemorate the 100th anniversary of the Indy 500. It’s since been rewrapped in new graphics to honor the Hot Wheels 50th anniversary while Firestone tires and Hot Wheels rims complete the look. It features a 1000-cc four-cylinder turbocharged motorcycle engine while the wing and ground effect aerodynamics create 2646 lbs. of downforce – all to deliver a top speed of over 230mph on an inverted track. If you watched the Hot Wheels for Real online series, then you’ll recall how the Bad to the Blade defied gravity by driving upside down! Sounds like the perfect contender for Forza Horizon 5: Hot Wheels."
—Official description[1]

The 2012 Hot Wheels Bad to the Blade, abbreviated as "Hot Wheel BTTB", is a mid-engine, rear-wheel drive fictional track toy developed by Hot Wheels.

It is featured in Forza Horizon 5 as part of the Forza Horizon 5: Hot Wheels expansion.


Bad to the Blade is a futuristic design of IndyCar and powered by a high-output 1000cc motorcycle engine on a stretched Formula 1000 chassis.

Designed by Fraser Campbell, a full-sized version was built by Picture Car Warehouse for the Hot Wheels-themed documentary Fearless at the 500. It currently resides in the Hot Wheels "Garage of Legends" and is often brought out for display at events organized by Hot Wheels.
