Does any one knows if there is a list of all Hot Wheels elite models in 1:43? I am googling for some time now and I am not finding anything.

You could try Carmodel.com encyclopedia, but tbh I have no idea if every HWE in 1:43 is in that list:

Mattel used to have a pretty comprehensive online catalogue which showcases all their HWE releases in 1/18 and 1/43 if i remember correctly. Unfortunately they tear the entire site down after they exited the HWE Ferrari game. I wonder if they still exist in the wayback machine domain...

Scale18.com was one of my go to site for diecast references but I think they have now retired and merged their collection with hobbydb.com.

I remember, but I think they had only current models in their catalog, not all. It is a shame they lost Ferrari license. . . It would be good if they could get BMW, but I have sort of feeling Mattel is getting out of that business. . .

Wayback machine did captured some snapshots of the old Hotwheels elite webpages but unfortunately they are fragmented and probably not usable at all as the pages appear to be coded using Adobe flash..

What a bummer.. I used to frequent their site a lot many years ago.

I wish HWE made these 1:43 also in 1:18:

And HWE didn't forget the A pillar triangular side window in 1:43, but they forgot that in 1:18...

I guess they didn't bother with the triangular side window on the 288GTO since back then they didn't bother to include any side windows. I suppose I can fabricate one if i am handy and has the patience to do it LOL. It is a shame that the Ferrari 412 never get made into 1/18. I was so looking forward to one after they released the Dino 308GT4 and was naively hoped they would also throw in working popup lights as they have done so for many other Ferraris. I settled for the KK-scale's 365GT4 2+2. I did managed to get the 1/43 412 some time ago but would love it to be 1/18 scale.
