This is the Tamiya RC Ferrari 458 Challenge TT02. This ground-breaking machine is the first 1/10 scale subject to appear on the newly-designed Tamiya TT-02 chassis.
The Ferrari 458 Challenge is a circuit car and made its stunning debut in 2009. Based on the 458 Italia, this version is known as the successor to the F430. Its 4,500cc displacement engine produces 570ps at 9,000rpm. For the final classy touch the interior of the original car was designed with input from 7-time Formula One World Champion Michael Schumacher.
The TT-02 chassis is a 4WD entry level machine that was engineered and designed for high durability and easy assembly. Just like its predecessor, the TT-01 (first released in April 2003 with the iconic Enzo Ferrari body) the TT-02 is an ideal platform to start your bashing in the parking lot or on-road racing hobby. The TT-02 design incorporates advancements that make it possible to use modern day battery technologies simpler as well as giving the user more adjustability.
