Introducing the Tamiya Wild One Max, a stunning replica of the classic Wild One dune buggy in 1:10 scale, complete with radio control capabilities. The Little Car Company, in collaboration with Tamiya, has created a remarkable product after two years of development.
The original design has undergone significant changes during the process. The Wild One Max has recently been upgraded to a full-size model, as it was initially marketed as an 8:10 scale runabout. The buggy's size has been increased to accommodate a passenger seat, allowing for a thrilling experience for two.
According to The Little Car Company, their vehicle is equipped with eight battery packs that can be easily removed and provide a combined power of 14.4 kWh. The electric engine powering the rear wheels can reach a top speed of 60 mph. The Tamiya Wild One Max Buggy is equipped with Bilstein dampers and Eibach springs, providing a smooth ride. Additionally, it features Brembo brakes and 14-inch Maxxis off-road tires for optimal performance.
The interior of this vehicle boasts a high-tech five-inch digital screen, top-of-the-line marine-grade switches, and comfortable Cobra seats equipped with four-point harnesses for added safety. According to The Little Car Company, they will be providing a road-legal package that can be utilized on streets within the UK and the European Union. For those of us in North America, it's exciting to hear that the Wild One Max will soon be available! However, it's important to note that, as of now, there are no plans for a street-legal model. The release date and price will be disclosed at a later date this year.
