The Torcruiser (トルクルーザー) is a Mini 4WD PRO car released by Tamiya in December 2005.
The Torcruiser featuring the long-nose, modern sports car body design, with air vents protrudes on just behind the headlights on the front cowls.
The bodyshell, unlike other Mini 4WD cars, was made of clear polycarbonate with plastic mounting attached, meaning it can be painted in any color with spray paint (using special paints for polycarbonate). The preferred color of the bodyshell is red, and has the decals that has red and orange highlights with black and silver trims. Because cutting is also required, this makes the assembly of the car harder for those not used to this.
It is equipped with the white small-diameter 3-spoke VS-type wheels paired with X-type narrow slick tires, and is equipped with the N-01 and T-01 units for its MS Chassis. The sub-parts of the chassis were molded in gray. It comes with the standard, light gray 16 mm lightweight plastic rollers.
Hatsune Miku Special
The Miyazawa Model-exclusive variant is the same as the regular Torcruiser except it comes with two Vocaloid-inspired decals: one for Hatsune Miku and one for Kagamine Rin/Len. In some ways, it is the 'itasha' version of the mini car.
