No longer manufactured but still one of the world’s most iconic vehicles, the VW Beetle is captured beautifully with this latest scale finished desert edition from Carisma.

Using the GT16 chassis platform of a ballraced sealed 4wd shaft drivetrain and slipper unit, oil filled shocks, front and rear differentials and fully adjustable double wishbone suspension the Beetle is ready to tackle most off road conditions.

The chassis is factory installed with 2.4ghz radio system, brushed electronic speed control, brushed motor and servo. With an 1100mAh 7.2v NiMH battery, wall charger and transmitter AA batteries all included in the box this bug can be up and running in no time.

To finish off this GT16, Carisma has spent a lot of time mastering a military matt green finish for the Beetle bodyshell along with wing mirrors, light lenses, clear windows and rear engine detailing. Front and rear bumpers, wheels and tyres have also been finished with some mud and sand effect splatters to provide you with a truly stunning scale look.

Beetle fans you have been warned….you really need own a GT16 Beetle Desert Edition!
