Double Vision

The Hot Wheels Double Vision is a reissue of the Mantis. The die-cast car was a 1973 release that was designed by Ira Gilford. Production was in Hong Kong.

It is available in a large number of enamel colors and features a canopy that opens to access the cockpit. The car has blue tinted windows, a white or brown interior, and “Double Vision” on the base. The redline wheels can all be through-hole or through-hole in the front and capped in the back.

When the Mantis was renamed Double Vision, the primary change was the removal of the engine. The engine holes were replaced with louvers. Also, it has enamel instead of Spectraflame paint and rounded protectors were added to the base next to the rear wheels.

There is a variation with the Double Vision in lime green. It can be found with the Mantis engine.
