One of those awesome vehicle creations that you can´t move your eyes from. This BMW is one of those concept cars everyone saw at one point in life. In posters or magazines, calendars or TV. Now see the - quality - toy! Featuring working hinged headlamps.
Built by BMW as a celebration for the 1972 (Summer) Olympics in Munich. Brought to life (as a toy) by New Bright. Back then it was just a lamp logo and "quality toys". Now one of the most respected remote control vehicles manufacturer in the world!
MIB, New Bright (quality toys), late 70s, early 80s.
Comes with a wire remote (the same racing style used for New Bright´s line then).
The kid in me has to have these when I see them. In fair doses... As you probably know, I´m mostly into actioon figures and particularly 3 3/4" scaled one. But these are just... sweet.
4-way remote control allows it to go forward, reverse, left and right.
Uses 2 "D" size batteries (not included).
They turn on when pressing forward or reverse. When down, the circuit is cut. Nice detail.
A lot of cool details of the futuristic cockpit of the actual 70s bomb.
Maybe it would be asking too much, but if the doors would open... Gullwing style like the actual car...
