Description

The ULTIMATE boy's toy: 2ft-long radio-controlled car reaches a staggering 188mph to smash the world record Nic Case from Southern California drove the car on the record-breaking run The 2ft car called R/C Bullet is faster than an Audi R8 and is hand built with carbon fibre and specialist equipment Mr Case plans on powering through the 200mph barrier It might look small and unassuming but this radio controlled car is faster than an Audi R8, which costs around £80,000. The fluorescent wedge-shaped radio controlled car is far from a standard toy as it has a blistering top speed of 188mph (303km/h) - the top speed of Ferrari's classic 288 GTO. The miniature car is called the R/C Bullet and is completely handmade with specialised materials and components, a little like the construction of a Formula One car. It also has high speed motors and a long-range radio so it can complete long runs in a straight line to set its top speed, according to RC Groups. It was built by radio controlled car enthusiast Nic Case, 50 from Southern California, who is no stranger to setting records. Earlier versions of the Bullet reached almost 162mph (259km/h) in 2008 and 172mph (276km/h) in November 2013. He is now determined to power through the 200mph (322km/h) barrier.
