Tamiya has officially announced the SU-01 Lightning Hawk Buggy.

This car is aimed as a bridge for those who want to explore the world of RC. It just needs AA batteries to run, and it is upgradable.

I have a soft spot for low price entry level cars, and as this is fully proportional it will be more than satisfactory as an office runner to have a race at lunchtime, or a cheap Single car class to race for beginners of the hobby.

Japanese RRP is ¥14,800 (£80) with the street price around ¥9,200 

Here is a translation of the info

The Lightning Hawk is a complete electric RC buggy sold in an all-in-one package, boasting a rear-wheel drive gearbox, four-wheel strut suspension and simple construction. It is equipped with a 370 type motor, so it is easy to control, yet nimble, and can be run both indoors and out. The strong but lightweight polycarbonate body, which features a long, thin cockpit, large side pontoons and a separate large rear wing, was designed by Mr. Nezu Kota of Znug Design. A great feature of the controller is the function button which can be used to switch between 'Normal' and 'Power' modes. There is no need to buy a dedicated battery as the Lightning Hawk's power comes from four readily available AA batteries, so it's the perfect machine for a first RC car.
