Video Of 100 MPH Remote Controlled Car Taking To The Road

It’s a speedy, streamlined sports car that can do zero to 100mph in under five seconds. But this nippy little number comes in a slightly smaller size than most luxury motors. The Traxxas XO-1 weighs just 10 pounds and measures only 27-inches long – and it operates by remote control.

But the tiny, U.S.-made machine is certainly not designed for children – and it will be a sure-fire hit with grown men across the world.

Its remarkable custom-made engine can race through gears with a dexterity that would stall most model cars.

The transmitter range goes beyond seeing distance, according to Wired.com, and the state-of-the-art design will thrill dedicated motor fanatics as it boats sensors that send data to a free iPhone app.

It will detect speed, rpm, temperature and battery life as drivers cruise around a track – or even their living room.


However, the model car does require perfect surfaces on which to screech around corners, which could prove hard to come by given its acceleration ability.


Although the little engine does not guzzle up petrol like the cars of the average speed-freak, the battery life is only around 15 minutes, so it will require a few more pit-stops than the world’s priciest full-sized motors.

While a Bugatti Veyron – the luxury car that can top 200mph – costs a cool £1million, the Traxxas XO-1 is on sale at a (relatively) minuscule $1,100 (£693).

It can manage 0-60mph in just 2.3 seconds, with a fully customisable dashboard that will get Formula One wannabes revved up with excitement.

A recording function even allows drivers to make videos of their journeys, which they can watch back with sound-effects later.

Racing enthusiasts can control steering and throttle sensitivity; steering percentage; braking strength; and throttle trim by simply touching and dragging the sliders on the screen of their remote control.

Texas-based Traxxas claims the XO-1 boasts a ‘track-shredding punch’ – so car-lovers had better keep their eyes open for it to hit Britain: if they blink they just might miss it.
