Reverb is a Teku car that is driven by Vert Wheeler, after Power Rage was destroyed in the Water Realm.

History

It makes it's first on-screen appearance in Breaking Point, where the lift lowers it to the ground in the Acceledrome so Vert can use it in the Junk Realm. Aside from the fact Reverb was hit with an EMP burst by Accelium, Vert still gets the car out in one piece. The car was then seen again through the Ultimate Race through the racing realms against Gelorum. After all of the realms have been completed again, Reverb was then in The Sphere racing Gelorum to the Acceleron Portal. Vert smashes Reverb into RD-09, and both cars get thrusted into the air. Reverb lands upside down and Vert is forced to climb out of the car. After the fight with Gelorum, Vert takes the Accelechargers and prepares to head back to the Acceledome to help his teammates, the Acceleron gives Vert the Wisdom Ring, flips Reverb rightside up for Vert and makes a portal for him to get back to the Acceledrome faster with anticipating the chance to finally race Vert. Once Vert is back into the Acceledrome, he uses Reverb and the Accelechargers to help fight off the remainder of the drones while the other humans hijack a Drone Sweeper to escape the Acceledrome, which is about to be blown up by Gig detonating all of the Nitrox 2 fuel in the compound. Vert shoots for the portal, telling Sparky that he has no idea where it is taking them, and make it through a second before Gig destroyed the compound. They hit the portal and Reverb comes through the portal in the Silencerz HQ. Vert was grabbed by Silencerz and tells Sparky to use the E.D.R. to get help from the others before Vert is pulled out and knocked unconscious. Reverb was last seen in the Silencerz HQ along with Vert, the Wheel of Power, the Accelechargers and the Wisdom Ring. It is unknown what becomes of the car afterwards.

Trivia

  • Reverb, or "Reverbrate" is named after the "Reverb effect", an audio effect applied to a sound signal to simulate reverberation. Another car that also shares this trait is Bassline, with both being cars named after audio terms.
  • Reverb is the only Teku car that does not feature a rear spoiler
  • It is also one of the three cars in the movies that can go to 300 mph completely on its own (without Nitrox 2 and track boosters), the others being Rat-ified and RD-09.
  • It is also one of the only two cars (the other being Nitrium) that escaped the Acceledrome’s destruction.
  • It's the only car that has its EDR being used, while staying completely in one piece with the driver.
  • Hypertruck, another Hot Wheels diecast, is based upon Reverb's design.
  • A different car also named Reverb appears in Battle Force 5.
  • An early version of Reverb was driven by Mark Wylde during a test animation by DQ Entertainment Ltd. It can be seen racing against other Reverbs featuring unused color schemes.
  • A Reverb diecast was supposed to appear in the 2006 Acceleracers Accelerons series. However, the plans were changed and only a single prototype was made.
  • An alternate concept version of the 2006 Acceleron Reverb can be seen in the 2006 German catalog (image below). The only difference are the color swap between orange and purple, and the lack of pink rings on the wheels. It was just a promotional art and never made it to production. This Acceleron variant of Reverb can be found in the Hot Wheels: Infinite Loop mobile game.
