I wanted to build a classic race car with a modern design. It's a great entry level car for any kid to build and can be a way to increase interest in building. The design is super-sleek and is meant to not overwhelm the builder. The car moves really smoothly and can take a licking as well - again making it a great build for a newer builder, but really for any level builder looking to a newer take on a formula one type racing car. Simply, this is a new take on a classic formula 1 style car that adds elements of futuristic sleekness.
