The Limited Edition Turbo Panther has been created to celebrate 60 years of action from Nikko remote control cars. It is a 1:14 scale model, it boasts full suspension and has a range of up to 40 metres. You also have the ability to race with up to ten players thanks to its multi band 2.4ghz frequency. It comes ready to run with all batteries included and has an impressive top speed of 9.3mph! Nikko have been producing r/c vehicles since 1958 and this special limited edition buggy looks like something really special and we couldn’t wait to try it out!
The buggy is black with bright green and orange styling, four grippy rubber tyres and a huge spoiler. The controller has green handles with large orange buttons for the controls and a big green ‘N’ ‘turbo mode’ button. Before we even got it out of the box I think my favourite feature is that the vehicle has a rechargeable battery that can be easily powered up by using the integrated USB cable (no more lost chargers). The controller takes 3 x AA batteries (which are included), the Turbo Panther is also splash and dust proof which should ensure that it is hard-wearing.
We used the car on both short grass and tarmac; it drove well on the grass but it was definitely in its element on the tarmac, it really is a very nippy vehicle and we found it very responsive so it was easy to drive and control. This is the best remote control car we have used, it isn’t the cheapest as it retails for £39.99 but it is well worth the money for the quality of vehicle that you get.
