Shop the best Prime Day bargains on car wax to truly make your ride sparkle

A practice as ancient as the martial arts: waxing. No car detailing job is complete with some good old-fashioned wax. Whether it’s that thick, goopy stuff out of a tub or that quick-and-easy magic sauce in a spray bottle, a good car wax can add a layer of protection and shine to your car that you never knew you were capable of adding. And as much as I personally hate washing cars, I do love the satisfaction of watching that wax sparkle like diamonds once it’s said and done. So, with Amazon Prime Day deals still ongoing at the time of writing, do yourself a favor and treat your car’s paint to some car wax at a great price. Your clear coat will thank you later.

Meguiar’s Hybrid Ceramic Liquid Wax | 49% off

Although not explicitly listed as a Prime Big Deal, it sure as heck should be. At a mere $15 when writing, this top-notch liquid wax from a big-name legacy brand slashes nearly half off its original sticker price for the same great quality. This 16-ounce bottle is loaded with Meguiar’s hybrid ceramic formula, reportedly good for long-lasting protection, excellent water-beading, and a glistening shine we yearn for so much in a good car wax. Numerous gilded reviews praising its ability to make good on its claims make it one of the most acclaimed detailing products on Amazon.

Meguiar’s Waterless Wash & Wax | 49% off

For those who live and die by “Ain’t nobody got time for that,” Meguiar’s Waterless Wash & Wax is a great on-sale solution for those who put bandaids over stab wounds. Kidding! But in all seriousness, there’s nothing wrong with a quality quick detailer in a pinch, especially when your ride’s a little dusty at the car show, and you just need to give it a rapid, wax-like sparkle in seconds. No water is necessary, the clear coat remains protected while bolstering any existing wax, and Meguiar’s claims it’s also safe for use on chromes, plastics, and glass.

Aerolon Tech Shine Ceramic Polymer Car Wax | 20% off

Here’s an oddball choice by an oddball brand. Aerolon’s Tech Shine Ceramic Polymer is the perfect choice for car nerds. Or bikes. Or boats. Or planes. Or just about everything in between. Being an Air Guardsman, I can infer that “aircraft grade” likely means higher strength and concentration to ensure the integrity of the wax layer when exposed to freezing ambient temps, the heat of the engines, or immense speeds. It reportedly won’t deliver show-stopping, Concours-level shine, but it’ll certainly take care of that clear coat for a long time. So, if you’re looking for a reliable shine for your 2024 Ford Mustang Dark Horse or your P-51D Mustang warbird, this is the liquid wax for you.

Turtle Wax Hybrid Ceramic Spray Coating | 18% off

Here’s a take on the popular spray wax formula by the legacy wax brand that literally has it in its name. Its hybrid formula provides a trustworthy barrier against water and grime and can reportedly last up to six months between applications. Akin to quick detailers and wash-and-waxes, it’s also safe for use on chromes, plastics, and glass. And dare I say, it’s a heck of a deal right now at less than $14 per 16-ounce bottle. Normal pricing still sits at a budget-friendly $17.

Turtle Wax Hybrid Solutions Ceramic Graphene Paste Wax |
20% off

Ah, we can’t have a car wax round-up without ever featuring one for the traditionalists who value the potency and superiority of old-school paste wax. Miyagi would be proud to smear this on this fleet on classic Americarna. Long popular for liquid and sprays, this paste now features a hybrid ceramic and graphene formula for enhanced UV protection and slickness that will make an afternoon of waxing on and waxing off worth its weight in spades. 

Chemical Guys Hydro Slick Ceramic Coating Hyperwax | 19% off

The hot new name on the market strikes back with their hot-ticket ceramic car wax. And boy, does that bottle look good sitting on a shelf next to some Pit Vipers and the keys to a C4 ZR-1. Chemical Guys claims to have introduced the first-ever “hyperwax,” with unmatched protection, slickness, and shine with its silicone dioxide gel-based formula. And most intriguing of all, it’s claimed to be safe for all surfaces, including glass and chromes. Given Chemical Guys’ strong track record of highly effective products, I have no reason to doubt them, and neither should you.

An Amazon’s Choice winner and a mega car nerd special, here’s one for the McLaren fanatic! Snap together millions of dollars of McLaren history condensed into $30 of plastic bricks. As with other Speed Champions sets, this is a beautiful display of McLaren’s old and new flagships, the Solus GT track day special and the one-of-two F1 LM supercar.

Now, here’s what I’d like to call a Sheilah Special. For the young F1 fans out there or just fans of Mercedes in general, this Speed Champions set honors Mercedes-AMG’s current efforts on both the road and track. This set features a beautifully shrunken-down reimagining of the W12 E Performance Formula 1 car and the Project One (now called ONE) hypercar it inspired, complete with swappable wheel caps and two drivers. 

Lego Technic McLaren Senna GTR | 20% off

Time to get a little more technical. Part of a lower echelon in Lego’s more advanced Technic line, this is perhaps their most accurate car model, as the real Senna features just as many cuts, gaps, and holes as a Technic car. The construction nearly matches the body of a real Senna GTR, complete with a moving mid-mounted V8 and functional steering.

Lego Technic Sián FKP 37 | 16% off

The pièce de résistance of any Lego car collector. This nearly 3,700-piece 1:8 model of Lamborghini’s supercapacitor hybrid supercar is among their line of top-shelf, premium sets. From the replica center-lock wheels to the functional scissor doors and mini luggage bag, this set is perfect for the builder looking for the next big challenge. 

Toy cars for the collectors

Here’s a cheap and cheerful way to satisfy the inner car nerd while filling up that empty face on a desk or shelf. This randomized assortment will include any five of Hot Wheels’ array of licensed supercars. Anything’s game, from classic supercars like the McLaren F1 or Bugatti EB110 to modern hypercars like the Pagani Huayra. In an age where many specialty Hot Wheels models sticker for several dollars more just for one car, this assortment pack is an excellent way to build the collection without breaking the bank.

Hot Wheels Fast & Furious 5-pack

Continuing the trend of affordable collectibility, here’s a 5-pack treat for any fans of that one wacky and convoluted car/heist movie series. This car pack spans multiple films in the franchise, from the first film’s iconic Charger R/T and Supra to even the divisive Tokyo Drift RB26-swapped Ford Mustang.

Best Choice 12V Kids Ride-On Truck

Totally not a Jeep Wrangler from Amazon

Ah yes. The very obvious Jeep Wrangler for the tiny off-roader in your life. Because, I mean, seriously. You don’t really have a choice in buying this for anyone else other than your kids. Although, you’re more than welcome to wedge yourself in for our amusement. Complete with functional doors, a Bluetooth radio, and a seatbelt, this ride-on electric truck can be piloted by your child or by you via the included remote control!

Kidzone 12V Ride-On Lamborghini Aventador SV | $20 off

For future supercar hype beasts, this licensed Aventador makes good on its premium price tag with actual, hydraulically-assisted scissor doors and two speed settings. It also comes in your choice of eight vivid colors and includes a USB stereo system… for some reason. Like the not-a-Jeep-Wrangler above, parents have the choice of commandeering their kid’s joyride via a remote control.

Hot Wheels Total Turbo Takeover track set | $10 off

Take yourself or your kiddos back to your youth of scaled-down cartoonish drag racing with the Total Turbo Takeover play set. Watch as your overpriced collector’s Hot Wheels you snagged at a Cars N’ Coffee is catapulted around a bend, through the loop, and into the odd choice of Indiana Jones-style traps. I don’t think this track layout makes sense, but neither did the logic in the Hot Wheels movies, yet 7-year-old me thought those were the coolest races to hit TV. So take a little trip back down memory lane. 

Kidami Die-Cast Toy Cars 5-pack | $12 off

Remember the stand at the corner of the toy aisle in every Wal-Greens pharmacy or Smith’s grocery store? Yeah, help yourself to a pack of those at a great price! At a time when one single car from those stands can ring in anywhere between $15 to $30, you can snag this five-pack of unlicensed badgeless replicas for the cost of one with current sale pricing. Not the most detailed selection of model cars, but they’re pretty dang close. I don’t think the kids will mind. 

12V Kids Ride-On Car | $20 off

Totally not a G-Wagon on Amazon
Image credit: Amazon

Currently undercutting our other ride-on cars due to a massive sale, this totally-not-a-Mercedes-G-Wagon offers much of the same features for less! Your tots can enjoy the auxiliary stereo system, elevated ride height, and, perhaps best of all, an interior actually modeled to resemble the real G-Wagon’s dashboard and center stack. Not a bad touch for something you’ll never fit in.

SASBSC Maserati MC20 Light-Up & Pull-Back Model Car | $5 off

Here’s an exciting one! Haven’t seen a pull-back car with functional lights since 2 Fast 2 Furious was new, but this Maserati MC20 die-cast is certainly cooler than the plastic Honda Civic I had with the same features. This 1:32-scale model is constructed fully out of metal, complete with functional lights, its own display stand, and working doors, frunk, and engine cover.
