This kit is a funny spin-off of Tamiya's GT Limited (aka Turbo II) kit. The kit lacks all of the detail parts of the original, but comes with a very sturdy chassis and an electric motor instead. The body however is the same as the original kit and the separate head lights, hood and sunroof make this kit a bit too fragile for fast dashes across the living room floor.
There is an interior tub provided, but it is very much simplified and the floor is raised to just below the waist level to allow for the batteries.
Fantasy wheels and self adhesive vinyl decals place this model kit definitely in the toys category.
Interesting detail is the use of brown tinted windows, the tint is close to what was available on some USA Turbo II's such as the 10th Anniversary models.
