Tamiya Sand Scorcher - 1:1 scale

Of the many iconic R/C cars Tamiya have created over the years, the Sand Scorcher is arguably one of the coolest. Quite sought after too - an original 1979 model can fetch $5000.
German VeeDub restorers and customisers The Bug Box, in a stroke of pure genius, built a life-size homage to the Sand Scorcher for the Nuremberg Toy Fair, accurate right down to the individual decals and 'BAJA BUG' number plate. For the sake of accuracy, the body lifts from the shell just like a Tamiya car would, and they've also built a huge remote control and a box to keep it in.
