Carrera Enters the R/C Category with a State of the Art Line of Performance Driven and Technologically Advanced Vehicles


Cranbury, NJ January 2010 -- (Virtual Press Office) - Carrera, the world leader in electric race cars, sets and accessories is set to expand its range of products by introducing a brand new line of remote control vehicles. The R/C line of on and off-road trucks, buggies, boats ....and more all come in a host of fresh designs and in a wide variety of scales. Designed by Stadlbauer, Carrera's parent company and one of the leading toy companies in Europe, the line boasts plenty of high-quality, state-of-the-art technical features with superior performance.

"Carrera R/C is what radio control fans have long been waiting for", explains Ed Gershowitz President of Carrera of America. "With our new Carrera R/C range, we are setting the standard in the segment for boys toys. Carrera means speed, quality, performance and state-of-the art technology and that is precisely what we are giving customers with Carrera R/C."

The list of technical features built into Carrera R/C models includes a new lightweight, but extremely powerful Lithium-ion rechargeable battery and high performance SPS charger. These features significantly reduce charging time and increase running time over and above other radio control products currently on the market. The dual-mode speed function lets you set two speeds for indoor and outdoor use. The powerful motor accelerates vehicles to turbo speeds never before seen. Special body plastics technology and an almost indestructable chasis are both more than forgiving when it comes to the odd bump or two. A particulary clever feature is the steering setting on the transmitter. Drivers can choose whether they want to steer the vehicle either with the joystick or joypad. Carrera R/C vehicles come equipped with pneumatic tires, chrome wheels, differential gears and four-wheel drive.

"Agent Black Spy Control", for example is a cool 1:16 police car, which can beat any road rival hands down with its pneumatic tires, speed and suspension. At the flick of a switch on the remote control, drivers can switch on lights and sound up the police sirens. The 1:14 "Agent Black" off-road truck comes equipped with Xenon front lights, rear brake lights and a fully functional water cannon with a range of up to 30 feet for tons of outdoor fun.

A full range of Carrera R/C models will be launched during the course of the year and can be used on land, in water and in the air. This range will also include 1:12 scale licensed vehicles equipped with 2.4 GHz remote control technology. This guarantees interference-free racing and these vehicles will have user friendly controls for both right and left-handed users.

All Carrera R/C models will be sold ready-to-run with battery pack and charger included. You wouldn't expect any less from Carrera…
