The C7 Chevrolet Corvette has gotten a lot of attention since its release and rightly so. But for those of us out there that can only dream of purchasing this special vehicle, Vaterra – a well-known radio controlled car manufacturer – has created a radio controlled 1/10 scale replica of the Chevrolet Corvette Z51 Stingray.
Just like the vehicle it’s modeled after, the Chevrolet Corvette RTR comes equipped with some high tech parts. Paired with a Vaterra V100-S chassis and Dynamite power system, the Corvette RTR not only looks like the real deal, but will also provide individuals copious amounts of fun due to its capable handling and zippiness.
While it may just be a radio-controlled car, this level of precision and engineering will come at the price of $289.99 USD. That may sound like a lot of money for a toy car, but the amount of craftsmanship that went into making this vehicle is an RC enthusiast’s dream:
Here are some key features of the Corvette RTR:
• AVC Technology Compatible
• Officially licensed 2014 Corvette Z51 body
• Waterproof electronics
• DX2E Spektrum 2.4GHZ radio system
• 4WD Shaft-driven
• Sealed gear boxes
• Friction dampening, adjustable shocks
• Double wishbone suspension
• Dynamite 540 size brushed power system
After looking at the specs, the asking price of under $300 is a real bargain for a Corvette fanatic. With no assembly required, it may be one of the coolest gifts to buy for an automotive enthusiast.
