Electric R/C Car Series No.714


Length: 397mm. Image shows painted and assembled kit.

The Golf is one of Volkswagen's most iconic cars. From its first appearance in 1974, the Volkswagen Golf has continued to develop and lead the worldwide compact car class, all the while also actively participating in motorsport. The second-generation model - the result of a full model change in 1983 - had a GTi sports model with a 1,781cc inline-4 engine. This assembly kit R/C model depicts that car, which met with success in global rally races, in 1986 becoming champion of its class. It features a lightweight and durable polycarbonate body, paired with the MF-01X chassis that parlays its shaft-driven 4WD into a great drive on road and flat dirt.
