Tamiya Toyota GR Yaris
The little GR Yaris blew the car world away when the first reviews rolled in, with its incredible handling, high power and low weight it has become an instant classic and one of the most talked about cars of 2021. The plucky little hatchback backs its performance up with its looks, despite the small size. With wide arches, a big gaping bumper, roof spoiler and huge disc brakes with red calipers, it has the menacing look to match the 257 hp engine and 4WD.
Now Tamiya has launched the 1/10 scale version of the car, allowing you to rip around in your own little GR Yaris!
Built on the M-05 Chassis
The Tamiya version of the hot Yaris is built on the front-wheel drive M-05 chassis, making it light, durable and easy to assemble. Essential components like battery, motor servo and ESC are positioned centrally in the car for a low center of gravity and optimized weight distribution, improving handling and predictability. The suspension offers double wishbone suspension on all four wheels with 3-piece steering linkage to improve stability at high speeds. The short wheelbase of the original car is maintained here at 239mm, ensuring the car is nimble round tight corners.
To ensure a true to scale level of details, the Tamiya GR Yaris kit comes with several separately molded parts - for example for the side mirrors. The 11 spoke wheels are delivered in black, with 60D radial tires and inner sponges.
