Warning, the image you see above isn’t what it appears to be. While it is a new marquee to the world of super cars. It is also something different altogether. Introducing the XO-1, an all-wheel drive vehicle capable of doing 0 to 100 mph in under 5 seconds. Before you contemplate the possibility of this claim, the XO-1 is actually a Remote Control (R/C) Car. But don’t dismiss it as mere child play. In fact, its manufacturer, Traxxas, warned buyers that XO-1 “is not a toy” and “intended for use by experts only”.
Powered by lithium-polymer battery, a new Traxxas Big Block Brushless Motor, and heavy-duty drivetrain to ensure the vehicle last during high speed, the XO-1 is actually ready to race once its out of the box. In fact, come December 20th, Traxxas will make its Traxxas Link app available on App Store. With it, you can zoom across the salt plain of Lake Bonneville from 0 to 60 mph in 2.3 seconds (Lamborghini Muriélago does it in 3.6 seconds), with real-time telemetry on your Apple iPhone or iPad. See the amazing video as this mighty mite dash around the Texas Motor Speedway. Meanwhile, the Traxxas XO-1 is available for $1099.99 through Traxxas dealers and hobbyist stores.
