The Little Car Company is legendary for producing beautiful scale replicas of exotic and/or iconic classic cars.

They reported a couple of years ago that they were working on a full-sized version of one of Tamiya’s most popular kits, the radio-controlled The Wild One (58050) first launched in 1985.

The ‘replica’ is called The Wild One Max, is road-legal but like the Tamiya version is battery-powered with a 14.4kWh pack that can give a 124-mile range on tarmac or 69 miles off-road. It even has a top speed of 62mph.

Although the Launch Edition will be available in fully built guise (from £35,000) there could be kit availability in the future.

The special edition model features a carbon-fibre dashboard and plaque, a specially reintroduced 1/10th scale Tamiya Wild One kit (with remote control, battery and charger).

The 500kg Wild One Max features Maxxis Bighorn tyres 29in at the rear and 14in at the front. It is road-legal in the UK and EU under L7e quadricycle regulations.

I’m just wondering when I can have a go in one?!
