Die-cast car toy manufacturer Hot Wheels has launched its 2021 Legends Tour.

The tour plans to find the next car to immortalise as a 1:64 scale die-cast model in its 'Garage of Legends' series via user submissions.

It's the fourth year the program has been run by the brand, but the first year Australia has been involved.

Virtual events are being held in 14 countries around the world, with New Zealand kicking off the tour on 15 April, and Australia's event following on 22 April.

During the livestreams, user submissions will be scored by a panel of judges. A winner will be put through to a knock-out style series of future events, with one winner to be crowned.

Hot wheels states the judging centres around a "built not bought" ethos, with authenticity, creativity and "garage spirit" listed as three desirable attributes.

Australian rally driver, Molly Taylor, is one of the Australian leg's judges.

"As someone who has a few garage projects myself, car builds are something I love to follow, "added Taylor.

"It's going to be so interesting to see what custom creations are out there!".

When asked whether she'd enter her Subaru Brumby into content, she replied "it's very much standard, and not a custom car, yet..."

Details on entering the competition can be found on the Hot Wheels Legends Tour website.

Last year's winner was a 1970 Pontiac Trans Am, owned by custom vehicle builder Riley Stair (pictured above).
