Treasure Hunts (sometimes T-Hunts) are mainline segment series of Hot Wheels cars introduced by Mattel in 1995. They began as 12 cars every year; one released per month. Now there can be 12 or 15 T-hunts. The original production run started at 10,000 pieces worldwide, and have since grown due to the demand and increasing popularity of Hot Wheels collecting. As of 2007, 157 Treasure Hunts have been released.

The early Treasure Hunt Vehicles were identifiable by a label on the package. The blister card said “Treasure Hunt” or “T-Hunt” on a green bar with an illustration of a treasure chest. The cars were typically decorated with flashy designs.

    From year to year…

    In 2007, all 12 Treasure Hunt cars are planned to be marketed in regular and super versions.

    Then, in 2013, the main network underwent major changes. Like the new models, the 2013 Treasure Hunts have been mixed with normal cars, identifiable by a small flame symbol.

    Between 2017 and 2018, scavenger hunts had no numbers, but their regular or souvenir versions had their numbers on a map.

    In 2019, treasure hunts have their numbers next to the regular versions again.
