Tamiya M-06 Volkswagen Karmann Ghia kit

Tamiya have released their new Volkswagen Karmann Ghia kit based on the popular M-06 M-class chassis. The Karmann Ghia was a stylish coupé based upon the same platform as the legendary Beetle. Its body was designed by Italian firm Ghia and manufactured by the German company Karmann. The polycarbonate body in this replica sits on top of the Tamiya RWD M-06 chassis. The M-06 chassis features a rear-mounted motor, rear-drive setup and features a longitudinally-mounted battery pack, with R/C equipment positioned on either side for optimum balance and a low centre of gravity. 4-wheel double wishbone suspension uses metal-plated wheels, equipped with 60D radial tires at the front and 60D super grip tyres at the rear. In addition, a 3-piece steering linkage offers nimble handling response.
