Remember as a kid when you yearned for those crazy Hot Wheels cars that changed color when you dunked them in hot and cold water? It was about as much fun as you could have, short of striking first in a game of roshambo.

Remember those Hotwheels toy cars that would change color when you put them under a hot water faucet? A British car detailing firm has finally done what should have been done years ago, and applied the same type of paint to a real car. A small auto-detailing shop in the UK called Auto Kandy recently took a 200hp Nissan R33 Skyline S2 and gave it the Hotwheels treatment, making it change color dramatically from bright orange to dark purple whenever it is doused in cold water. The effect is almost immediate, and can create striking patterns on the car; excellent for showing off or hiding from the cops like in the 1981 movie The Cannonball run. It probably looks really cool in the rain too.
