The Zakspeed Ford Capri Turbo Gr.5 was powered by a 4-cylinder DOHC engine and had an instantly-recognizable low and wide form. A 1982 version of the car was decked out in distinctive orange Jägermeister livery and driven to a second place finish in the Salzburg round of the German Racing Championship by the German driver Klaus Ludwig.
Tamiya has faithfully reproduced this sleek racing machine in 1/10 scale on the TT-02 entry level touring car chassis. The TT-02 chassis platform is the successor to the TT-01 as it incorporates many new features to make it even easier for the new R/C kit builder to assemble and learn from. The TT-02 chassis performs well as cornering and overall speed has been enhanced to take advantage of new electronics available on the market. In addition to the TT-02 being an ideal platform to start from, R/C hobbyists can expand its potential by adding many of the Ho-Up-Options available to increase the cars speed and performance.
