A Morning Out With The ‘Coffee Boys’

Tamiya Wild One Max – by The Little Car Company

The highly anticipated all electric Tamiya Wild One MAX, which will be publicly unveiled this Summer, starting with a limited-run Launch Edition.

Based on the original Tamiya Wild One (58050) radio-controlled car – first released in 1985 – the Tamiya Wild One MAX will be relaunched as a full-scale vehicle which will be road legal in the UK and EU.


  • Carbon fibre dashboard with Launch Edition plaque
  • Carbon fibre keyfob
  • Launch Edition hologram decals, and r/c replica wheel nuts
  • Specially re-introduced Tamiya Wild One 1/10th kit complete with remote control, battery and charger
  • Priority build – these will be the first Wild One MAX to be built

Following a visit to Goodwood Festival Of Speed I have ordered one through my company. It comes under the classification of four-wheeled heavy quadricycles designed to carry persons, with an unladen mass of no more than 450kg (excluding batteries).

Perfect Spec!

Have I ordered one? If I have I will be going for the Emira i4 with four pot turbo charged AMG engine, double clutch gear box, with touring suspension, in their Nimbus Grey with a black leather (there is talk of being able to personalize the interior: black, tan and alcantara aka Aston AMR… fingers crossed), alcantara interior with yellow stitching and yellow brake calipers.
