Spongebob Squarepants has a bigger impact on the auto industry than even he knows. In fact, since the square one lives underwater, he probably doesn't even know there's an auto industry to begin with. We've seen how Toyota wrapped an SUV in his honor or how a Corvette was customized in Squarepants' handsome likeness. But none of that could prepare us for what discovered today.
Totally unbeknownst to him (and us), Spongebob and all his buddies have been turned into a line of toy cars by Hot Wheels.

We're not sure who would want a sea creature with wheels, but the toys are well made. As you can see, Patrick looks like a racing car combined with a sea star. He's pink and his eyes are on the front of the car. The hula pants create the colors of the back. The Spongebob car is yellow and square and it even has his teeth on the front of it.

Squidward looks cool and menacing thanks to a dragster body and a big engine. Because he has lots of tentacles, Hot Wheels gave him a lot of exhaust pipes. But our favorite is Plankton, who has a huge eye and a grinning smile, looking the closest to his cartoon self.

“We are so happy to have SpongeBob SquarePants join the Hot Wheels family,” said Manuel Torres, Senior Vice President, Global Toys and Consumer Electronics, Nickelodeon Consumer Products.  “We continue to push the boundaries of imagination with SpongeBob, and these new cars bring the show’s characters to life in such a unique way; they are sure to provide hours of action-packed adventure for fans everywhere.”

The toys are die-cast metal, were launched in America last summer and are available from $3.5 in stores and on Amazon.

Mihnea's favorite cars have already been built, the so-called modern classics from the '80s and '90s. He also loves local car culture from all over the world, so don't be surprised to see him getting excited about weird Japanese imports, low-rider VWs out of Germany, replicas from Russia or LS swaps down in Florida.
