That body alone will get me to buy one of these cars tomorrow

@AndyH

Nice 2002 Turbo. When is the release date? HPI might want to do some period Alpina wheels for this body. Speaking of wheels when will the Fuchs wheels be released to match the Porsche RSR body?

HOLY SHITE! Andy, you trickster!

I thought my CR was going to be a dedicated RSR machine, but that is BEAUTIFUL!

More info please!

Yes , I asked the seller what of the 2 models fit the cup racer and the answer was the "TAMIYA VW V W GOLF RABBIT BODY fits m03 M 03 m05 m 05" body....

The other shell is a replica of the vintage Tamiya model "RACING GROUP 2 BODY" and may not fit cup racers.....

I also love this little Golf....
I am palnnig to make a VW motorsport version of it....

Good show Andy, good show!!! Glad to see the Cup Racer is expanding from Japanese vintage racers to zee Germans! BMW 3.0 CSL would have been cool as well.

Andy... we need some Vintage Italians! Tamiya has the Alfa Giulia GTA but its not the race version..

HPI should up the ante and do the 69 Alfa Romeo 1750 GTAm with bulging fenders

I don't have enough posts in the forum so I canīt show you the bodies I would like to use in my CR. How about a Golf mk1 with a widebody like the used in the Berg Cup.
