Part of my personal collection, this Hot Wheels Qombee was released as part of the 2006 First Editions Series.

To be honest, when I first saw this on the shelf in 2006, I didn’t know quite what to make of the Qombee. Although; according to the Hot Wheels Wiki at Fandom, it is likely that it is an unlicensed version of the Volkswagen T1 van that has been modernized for racing, which sorta makes sense with the large round cutout on the front that is only missing the “VW” to complete the Volkswagen logo.
