Danica Patrick Drives the Hot Wheels Danicar in Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed


Female auto racing superstar and GoDaddy.com babe Danica Patrick is joining the Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed roster as a guest driver alongside the usual Sega mascot icons like Sonic the Hedgehog, Tails, Nights, Ulala, Gilius and AiAi. We knew as much already, but now we also know what fantasy vehicle the professional racer/model/spokeswoman will be cruising around in.


By land, air and sea, the Hot Wheels “Danicar” will be video game Danica Patrick’s ride of choice, custom designed by Sega in collaboration with partner Mattel. Select retailers will even be packing in a real diecast Danicar toy with copies of the game for the holiday season launch. Two gifts in one!


Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed races onto PS3, Xbox 360 and Wii U on November 18th, with Nintendo 3DS and PlayStation Vita versions crossing the retail finish line on December 11th. A PC digital download release is also scheduled for the holidays.


Watch the latest trailers from Comic-Con to see the Danicar in action and learn about all of the game’s different play modes.
