Artec Racing MK-001 1/8th body shell

We received a release from Artec Racing, another new player in the r/c market who will come out with a new 1/8th scale on-road body shell. We were sent a teaser shot of their first 1/8th body shell named the Artec MK-001. Designed and tested by two top international Team Orion and Kyosho drivers, Ilia Van Gastel and Adrien Bertin, it features a ‘stealth’ shaped cockpit and some ‘innovative’ features at the rear, but this will be revealed later at the Nürnberg toyfair where it will be seen on Adrien Bertin’s car at the Team Orion stand.
