Based on the Astute Open Top, it is the first car to be released under the Nendoroid Petite x Mini 4WD collaboration project between the two companies.
This version of Astute Open Top has the white bodyshell with Racing Miku-inspired decals on it.
It comes with the Racing Miku 2012 version Nendoroid Petite figurine, which can be attached into the mini car by removing the lower body parts and using the specialized battery clip. Any Nendoroid Petite figurines can be attached into the mini car using this special battery clip.
Unlike the bigger, standalone Nendoroid figurine, the Racing Miku Nendoroid Petite figurine only comes with a pair of optional arm parts and a display stand.
It came with the cyan small-diameter 3-spoke Fully Cowled-type wheels paired with the black high-profile treaded tires. The chassis frame and A parts were molded in green and magenta respectively.

As such users must replace said figurine with the smaller, more suitable figurine if they wish to participates into race events such as Japan Cup.
- As the Racing Miku Nendoroid Petit figurine didn't release as a standalone product, the only way to get the figurine is to buy the Mini 4WD car.
