It's indeed a "common error", but still not a variant.

A variant is an element that gets changed in later production, like the Supercharged Fabulous Hudson Hornet, first produced with silver rims but later with red ones.

So then based on your definition the Red Rimmed FHH would be the variant, as would be the correct DJ. Seems a little backward to me.

Actually, both versions of Fabulous Hudson Hornet are variants, as are both versions of DJ.

Holley wouldn't be a variant unless Mattel were to change something about her (style of wheels, size of mirrors, exterior color, etc.).

Conceding the point about Holley I have to disagree about the others. A variant is a deviation from the standard and is generally unintentional. The correct version is the standard so it cannot be a variant.

We need to put this debate before the U.S. Congress. They would give us a solid, clear-cut answer in no time! 😉
