The Mad Maverick is a fairly common car but what can make this one interesting is the name on the base. Very few cars were manufactured with the "Mad Maverick" name embossed on the base, making this a rare and very desirable car. The name was changed because of a copyright issue with Johnny Lightening, who had already released a model under the same name. Car & Driver recently posted on article on their picks for the Top 20 Most Valuable Hot Wheels that includes the Mad Maverick: with the name embossed on the base, the car was listed at #4 with a value up to $15,000. Condition is important and the real value is whatever a collector is willing to pay.
