Buzz Off – Beetle Graphic

The Hot Wheels Buzz Off is an original design that features a triple turbine engine hidden under an opening rear hatch. It was designed by Larry Wood and produced in Hong Kong.

The die-cast car is available in dark blue enamel and is decorated with a yellow & green beetle graphic. It has blue tinted windows, a black interior, a black plastic base, and through-hole redline wheels.

This version of the Buzz Off was one of five cars that were planned for a promotion with Proctor & Gamble. The promotion was canceled, but some cars were still produced.

The Buzz Off was never on a blister card, but may have been released in Japan in red box packaging. The other four leftover cars from the failed promotion were released in 1980 by the Wisconsin Toy and Novelty Co., Inc.
