The original Raikiri design concept was influenced by real world sports cars. Inspired by a Legend
Tamiya once again joins forces with car designer Kota Nezu of znug design to bring you a new and exciting Mini 4WD model. Raikiri is a legendary sword that appears in Japanese mythology, and provides the creative inspiration for the Raikiri. The model features a number of crisp edges such as on the front and rear face panels, and is finished in an oh-so-cool black with pink designs. Mr. Nezu has ensured that the body features plenty of detail, making this a model that you'll be wanting to wield at the local Mini 4WD circuit ASAP!
★The front of the car sets the tone for the model, sharp-eyed and making the Raikiri look raring to race.
★Bulging fenders pump up the Raikiri's sports car aura, as do the realistic looking taillight markings.
★The combination of chassis (blue) and body (red) airflow has been dubbed "twin twister."
Introducing Mr. Kota Nezu (Designer/"Creative Communicator")
Following a spell at renowned manufacturer Toyota, Mr. Nezu founded znug design in 2005. He designs a range of items in addition to cars, and has been awarded a number of highly prestigious awards in Japan.
