“In an additional reference to the constant dialogue between the brand and a society in perpetual evolution, the campaign’s finale reveals a scale model of the legendary “Seville by Gucci” Cadillac – a paradigmatic expression of the late ‘70s flair and a testament to the Maison’s forward thinking, which was produced in a very limited edition starting in 1978. Gucci has collaborated with Mattel to create its first official collectible with Hot Wheels – a 1:64th scale replica of the ’82 model of the Cadillac in a limited edition of 5,000 pieces worldwide.” – from Gucci
