Good things may often come in small packages, but the Mammuth Rewarron sees the humble radio-controlled car supersized. Aptly referred to as “remote controlled testosterone” by manufacturer Mammuth Works, the gas-guzzling monster can reach a top speed of roughly 70 km/h (45 mph). It is also said to be the first production RC car built to a 1:3 scale.
Clearly, the Mammuth Rewarron isn’t for the fainthearted – nor the thrifty. The car is offered in three versions: “Serial,” “Premium,” and “Competition,” ranging from US$5,500 – $15,000. A different class of 4-stroke engine is offered at each price point, from the cheapest air-cooled 200-cc model, up to more powerful water-cooled 250-cc and 350-cc engines.
Since the Mammuth Rewarron measures 185 x 90 x 75 cm (72 x 35 x 29 inches), and weighs a total of 80 kg (176 pounds), you’ll probably want to make sure you can stop it in good order. On this note, the car features disc brakes, ABS, and traction control.
In addition, an optional custom touchscreen Linux-powered control system dubbed “Mammuth SuperVision” is also available, and this lends fine-control over telemetry data, brake balance, and the like. The SuperVision system is cloud-integrated, allowing telemetry information to be monitored off-site if an internet connection is available.
Pre-orders are now open for the Mammuth Rewarron, though it appears to still be in the pre-production stage.
