When it comes to Hot Wheels, there is nothing more iconic than the over-the-top Twin Mill. Designed by Ira Gilford, who quit his job at Chrysler to design cars for Mattel, the Twin Mill is a prime example of the kind of outlandish concepts that make Hot Wheels such a success story.
A life-size, drivable replica was built in part by legendary hot rod designer Boyd Coddington with then upcoming car icon Chip Foose in charge of the build. It was finished by Barry Lobeck years later and debuted at SEMA in 2001.
What the Twin Mill lacks in visibility from its detailed cabin, it makes up for in horsepower. Dual-blown Chevy 502 big blocks blast around 1,400 horses.
The Hot Wheels Twin Mill was added to the game as part of the Hot Wheels Update as a Championship car. It is a low-end Class B car with a starting rank of 1245, a MAX rank of 1418 and MAX+PRO of 1530. Tuning Kits add 40 for a final rank of 1570.
The Hot Wheels Twin Mill has an above-average rate of acceleration, combined with good handling abilities, relatively poor drifting capabilities and an average top speed for its rank. It also has an excellent nitro efficiency rating of 5/10/15, which is a significant improvement over the respective efficiency ratings of the other Hot Wheels cars.
Adding on to that, the Twin Mill has a small body which allows stunts like forced barrel rolls to be completed with ease.
This is the official review of the Hot Wheels Twin Mill™ on the Asphalt YouTube channel, made by ReV_Tez and published on January 16, 2018:
Time to reach end of Tokyo straight: 8.349s
Perfect nitro duration: 10.692s
Triple nitro duration: 6.992s
French Guiana lap time: 1.07.287s
Final verdict: "The overall performance of the Twin Mill is fantastic! Although it isn't among the best of the cars in its class, it definitely leans towards the higher end of B Class. It has a strong top speed in combination with a great nitro duration plus smooth handling making it a worthy competitor."
However, the Hot Wheels Twin Mill will be by far the best car if a Hot Wheels-exclusive event ever occurs, being a B Class car while it's other 2 competition are D and C class cars.
The Twin Mill doesn't have any suitable farming races owing to its lack of Mastery or Season 9 races. As such, the Twin Mill is simply a collector's item and nothing more, especially due to appearing in no collections.
The Twin Mill is neither purchasable with or nor is it buildable with Blueprints. The car has to be obtained by completing its Championship event. An offer between March 15-27, 2018 priced the Twin Mill at 3,000.
