In case you didn’t know, the Ford GT is a fast car. We’re not talking Mustang fast, it’s in a whole different league. Most of the time when you see an RC replica of a fast car, it really goes pretty slow. However, this replica is fast enough to be driven on most highways.
This 1:5 scale H5 Ford GT RC car features a 23cc engine, 450cc fuel tank and a 15kg metal gear ratio.

For those that don’t really understand most of the technical features of the car, here’s a fact that you can surely respect. The car can reach a top speed of 60MPH!
