Everyone in the 80s-90s probably knows the popular radio controlled (RC) cars from Tamiya. Especially the Tamiya Wild One Buggy. If you had one, like me, you̵
Now a UK company is bringing your favorite RC car to life by creating the “Wild One Max”, an 8/10 scale replica of the popular 1985 car. Only this time it’s big enough for adults to fit in and drive yourself. No remote required, although the company will make some additions to ensure it is street legal.
The Little Car Company will develop the Wild One Max for release in 2022 under license from Tamiya. Sounds like this little electric buggy is going about 50 mph and reaching 25 miles per charge. However, there will be a wide variety of parts and upgrades available for enthusiasts to go all out and make it the most nostalgic thing ever.
In addition, the Tamiya Wild One Max life-size buggy will feature a polycarbonate chassis and metal roll cage, headlights, suspension oil-filled coilovers, rear suspension, and great little 15-inch wheels with hydraulic Brembo disc brakes.
This thing will cost around £ 6,000 / € 7,000 / $ 8,250 when it arrives in 2022, with plenty of performance upgrades or street-legal additions. Order one today and get ready to go.
