The latest special edition from XIKAR is tied to cars. Next week, the company will begin shipping limited edition finishes of its Xi1 cutter and Vitaras lighter as part of XIKAR’s new Hot Rod collection.

For the Xi1, two new color schemes are available: orange handles and black body and red handles and titanium body. The company is also promoting the Xi1 Red and Xi1 Black, although both models have previously been available in the company’s signature cutter.

The Vitara, which is a dual flame lighter with a built in punch, will be offered in red with a G2 trim and orange in a G2 trim. Once again the company will promote the already-existing black and G2 models.

XIKAR is not charging anymore for the special edition colts, the Xi1 will retail for its normal $64.99 and the Vitara for $74.99. The Hot Rod Collection is one of a handful of special edition color schemes and finishes the company has planned for this year, which includes a hot pink gift set the company will sell to raise money for Operation Cigars for Warriors.
