When it comes to speed, there are few cars that rival the S7 limited production supercar built by Saleen. First debuted on August 19, 2000 at Monterey Historic races, this hand built machine has undergone several upgrades. From 2000 to 2004, the S7 was propelled by a naturally aspirated V8 capable of producing 550 horsepower. In 2005, the S7 V8 was supplemented by a powerful twin turbo, boosting engine power to a blistering 750 horses and a top speed around 250mph (402km/h). During this time, the S7R, the racing version of the S7, competed and dominated grand touring motor sports events.

Based on one of the most dominant production vehicles of the 21th century, the Himoto Rapida uses existing technology and racing bred components on a stiff aluminum chassis allowing you to stay ahead of the racing competition. Underneath its sexy exterior, is an upgraded .18 Infinity engine mated to a smooth 2-speed transmission which enables the Rapida to achieve a maximum speed of over 55mph (90km/h). Keeping the Rapida grounded to the floor, are high performance oil filled shocks and long suspension arms which provide a stable ride with tight cornering.

Key elements of this new design include a new suspension package and transmission that perfectly complements one another to offer enhanced turning performance. Overall, by consolidating the transmission and motor towards the center of gravity, the Rapida exhibits greater amount of traction and acceleration.

This nitro powered vehicle comes fully assembled: so prepare yourself for the ultimate racing experience.

Comments about ZZZ - Rapida Saleen Nitro RC Car:
The car didn't work very well out of the box and the main gear wore out very quickly. The local hobby shop couldn't get parts for it. [$] wasted as it's sitting in my storage room collecting dust. I got to use it one time.
BOTTOM LINE? No, I would not recommend this to a friend Was this review helpful? Yes / No
