A well detailed model, depicting a japanese Limited Edition. A Mach Green (bright green
metallic with a yellowish hue) paint job is a must for this type. The model kit comes with
authentic decals depicting the striping as offered on the Limited Edition type.
The model comes with a one-piece body shell. The floorpan is somewhat simplified to allow for motorization. The interior is well-detailed and complete down to a set of pedals on the floorboard, the only trace of the electric motor being the covered rear luggage space.
The wheels are well depicted, but unfortunately at 15 scale inches the diameter is 2 inch too large. The unmarked low-profile tires look very different from the stock 70-series tires.
A driver figure is included, as are an electric motor and lightbulbs for the head lights. The headlights can be raised and lowered by operating a push rod that sticks through the radiator shroud on the floorpan.
Body and A-parts are usually moulded in green, although a limited run was made with these parts moulded in purple (same catalog number and same box as the green version). Chassis and interior parts are moulded in black, the D-parts frame with wheels, headlight bezels and license plates is satin plated.
