The God Burning Sun (Japanese: ゴッドバーニングサン, Goddo Bāningu San), also known as Burning God Sun (Japanese: バーニングゴッドサン, Bāningu Goddo San, also known as 神太陽) in the manga, is a Mini 4WD PRO car released by Tamiya on October 15, 2016.
It was featured in the manga Hyper Dash! Yonkuro as Dankuro 'Tankuro' Toda's machine.
As with other Hyper Dash machines, the bodyshell of the God Burning Sun is the modernized and refined version of that of Burning Sun.
The pair of front guards has been extended and widened, and on the front there's a additional headlight. On the top center rear of the bodyshell, it has a roof diffuser.
The bodyshell is mainly in green, with some red trims and carbon mesh patterns on it. The stylized '2' and CoroCoro Dragon decals were also presented. As with Rise-Emperor, painting the carbon mesh parts to its intended color can be difficult due to how the bodyshell was designed. Also, since the front guards had also covered the front bumper, user should cut off part of it in order to install the front bumper parts.
It was equipped with the white, large-diameter 4-spoke MS-type II wheels paired with the black Avante-type slick tires. It was the first MA Chassis car in the regular lineup (not counting Neo Falcon MA-15 Red Special which is a limited model) to have its frame and A parts molded in gray and yellow respectively.

In Hyper Dash! Yonkuro, Kaidanji Sumeragi shows the Hyper Dash machines to the Dash Warriors members, however, he thinks it's not the time to give them to his team, much to Yonkuro and everyone's surprise.
It was only after Dash Warriors passed the first course in a race against the Dark Dominion in Shinkuro's house (which was taken over by Dark Dominion), Tankuro finally got the new machine along with other remain members. The first time he use the new machine is when race against Dark Dominion's Bomb Crow in the underground water tunnel course.
It was revealed that there's the multiple mass damper system known as the Ballast Tank system (Japanese: バラストタンクシステム, Barasuto Tanku Shisutemu) that were placed under the bodyshell of God Burning Sun, which stabilized the car on rough as well as water road surface.
Like the rest of the Hyper Dash machines, it was equipped with the MA Chassis made of carbon-mixed nylon plastic.

- The God Burning Sun, along with Cannon D Ball and Dancing Divine Doll, were introduced in the same chapter in Hyper Dash! Yonkuro, in the same manner of how Burning Sun, Cannonball and Dancing Doll were introduced in the original manga.
- In the video posted by CoroCoro Channel on Youtube, Takei reveals that he wanted to extend the front guards pass the front bumper, but was rejected by Tamiya due to safety concerns.
- It was originally named as 'Burning Guts Sun' before it was renamed to 'Burning God Sun' for its manga appearances and 'God Burning Sun' for the Mini 4WD kit release. The dual-naming situation of the God Burning Sun is similar to that of Tom Ghody Special (Which was named Spider from Mars in the manga).
- The kanji of the car itself is actually a pun; it was from the word 神対応 (Kami Taiou).
- It is the only Mini 4WD PRO car regular release to not available locally in the US via Tamiya America. This is likely due to having a word 'God' in the car's name. It is still possible for people in the US to brought the Mini 4WD car from gray import markets however.
- Should the manga Hyper Dash! Yonkuro being localized in the US, the car name might change to something that doesn't include the word 'God'.
