General info Edit

The Shadow Shark features the F1-like aerodynamic, open-wheel body design, with the long high-nose and the vertical 'shark fin' that extends backwards from the rear of the canopy. On the front, a pair of bargeboards are covering the front part the chassis and on the rear, there's a F1-styled rear spoiler. The overall body design was inspired by the shark.

All variants features the stripe-styled body decals with various coloring, with the Tamiya logo decals, the 'AR Chasssi' decals and the 'Shadow Shark' decals presented. On the original model and some variants, the decals depicts the shark's 'mouth' can be found on the sides, just behind the bargeboard..

The original model was equipped with the matte blue silver plated wheels and black tires, while the Steel Metallic variant was equipped with the matte gold plated wheels and black tires. Both the chassis frame and the A parts were molded in black.

Yellow Special variant Edit

The limited yellow-colored variant features the yellow body color, with the red, silver and black stripe-styled decals.

It was equipped with the dark silver, small diameter fin-type low profile wheels, paired with the red hard-compound low-profile tires. The chassis frame and the A parts were molded in smoke and yellow respectively.

Italia Special variant Edit

The once-Italy-exclusive Italia Special features the Italy red body color, with the green and white stripe-styled decals.

It was equipped with the carbon-mixed nylon, large diameter 3-spoke MS I wheels, paired with the green, hard-compound Avante-type slick tires. It was equipped with white, polycarbonate-mixed ABS chassis frame and white A parts.

Advan Limted variant Edit

The special variant, made in collaboration with the Yokohama Rubber Company, features the dark smoke body color with special body decal.
