— Ryou Hayami in The Wind Racer! Otokogi
The Poseidon-X (ポセイドンX) is a Mini 4WD car released by Tamiya in November 1993 as an add-on body parts set for existing Super Mini 4WD cars. Later, Tamiya would release the more completed Black Special version of the same car in limited quantities. Due to the above circumstances, the Poseidon-X is considered a very rare model by many enthusiasts, and has been re-released since.
It was featured in the manga The Wind Racer! Otokogi as Ryou Hayami's machine.
The Poseidon-X features a much different design compared to the other machines appearing in The Wind Racer! Otokogi. It features a small rear spoiler and an air-duct placed behind the canopy. There's also the front section which acts as a spoiler which is a recurring theme in the series.
Due to the fact that Ryou Hayami is an aqua racer, the car is originally colored in navy blue.
