Tamiya Volkswagen Beetle Rally - MF-01X 58650
Production of the Volkswagen Beetle (Type 1) began in 1949 and thanks to its distinctive rounded form with no-frills interior, it became a familiar sight across the world. Powered by a rear-mounted flat 4 engine, the lightweight Beetle offered superlative reliability and uncomplicated upkeep, which helped make the car a fixture on the global rally circuit from the 1950s through to the 1980s. This R/C model assembly kit is inspired by such rallying Beetles. Its lightweight polycarbonate body artfully captures the Beetle form, with metal-plated parts recreating bumpers and side mirrors. Stickers and light pod parts give the model a rallying air.
