Malaysian Teen Sells Customised Hotwheels To Support His Parents
Mohamad Amirul Asyraaf Zani has always loved making custom Hotwheels models since he was in primary school, but it was only in 2019 that he started getting orders. Now at 17 years old, he is turning his passion into a business to support his parents during the Covid-19 pandemic.
Among his long list of satisfied customers include local celebrity Wak Doyok who commissioned Amirul for a handcrafted model of his monster truck model.

The story even went viral on Twitter after user Hezeri Samsuri promoted Amirul’s work, which helped the teen to gain even more exposure for his business.
This 17 year old boy does customised Hotwheels to help his parents. The least we can do is to give him some free publicity. And we commisioned him to do one for Wak Doyok’s monster! pic.twitter.com/MAo68i9kwp — Hezeri Samsuri (@HezeriSamsuri) March 12, 2021
As of now, Amirul’s collection has grown over 100 Hotwheels models. But surprisingly, the hardest model for him to craft turned out to be the iconic Myvi due to the car’s curved edges.
Hardworking and talented, Amirul is grateful that he is able to support his parents by doing what he loves while balancing his studies.
