The best bet is the Tamiya one then - comes with a clear shell that you can paint the way you want.
Here's mine which I painted to look like my previous MINI


The latest model is the 2nd Generation S, so just get out the silver & black paint.

Ive just found why mine was 95 and other people only paid 60. There are two versions made by Carisma:
http://www.cmldistribution.co.uk/

Carisma GT14 Mini Cooper S John Cooper Works Gp Rtr Kit
# CA51868
Item is available.
Price: GBP 107.65

Stunning RC Mini Cooper with great detail, awesome body shell and 4WD performance.

The GT14 uses a beautifully finished scale bodyshell of some of the hottest GT cars around, scale black wheels as pictured on car not white as shown on chassis. Underneath the chassis is built to a very high specification featuring ballraced shaft drive, threaded shocks, slipper, diffs and twin deck chassis. All electronics, batteries and charger are included. Not cheap but a really great little car.

Hand-finished by Bertone in Italy, the Mini Cooper S John Cooper Works GP Kit was produced as a limited-production run of 2000 cars in 2006. Available in just one colour scheme, Thunder Blue with a Pure Silver roof, each car was individually numbered and features a decal on the roof along with a plaque on the dashboard. The last of the supercharged Minis and a genuine Limited Edition model, it is expected that the Mini Cooper S with John Cooper Works GP Kit will become a collectors' item. Carisma brings all the great details together to produce this authentic scale model of one of the world's most recognisable cars.

Features

* Fully decorated car body
* Fully assembled chassis
* Pre-installed 2 channel radio system
* Adjustable oil shocks
* Off-road tyres
* Adjustable slipper
* Gear differential
* Pre-oiled ball bearings
* 370 Class Sport motor with heatsink
* Compact all-in-one ESC/Receiver
* High performance mini servo
* 7.2V Battery with battery charger

Spec Check

* Length: 280mm
* Width: 130-132mm
* Wheelbase: 185-190mm
* Tyre: 49mm x 18mm
* Approx Weight: 900g

&

Carisma M14 Mini Cooper S John Cooper Works Gp Rtr Kit
# CA96868
Item is available.
Price: GBP 58.72

Not sure what the differences are I think the cheaper one are r'wd, wheres as mine is 4wd. I will post the differences once I open it on christmas day and have a play. Makes me feel better now knowing my gf has not been ripped off.

Hi Tweedbean........as a matter of interest is the transmitter pistol shaped or the normal flat type used for flying model aircraft ?

I presume the controls are throttle and brakes ?

Carisma RC Mini

This version is 4wd and is amazing. Its definitely not a toy. I've included some pictures below and I cant wait to give it a full blast in an big open space. Had a quick go in the grove and it was great, really fast. It looks great and the battery lasted ages. The pistol remote has lots of adjustable knobs for throttle and steering response.

Well worth the 95 price tag. I'm going to learn to drive this one properly and then I fancy getting a nitro powered car.

Hi Tweedbean,

Looks great !!!!!!

If you are interested in getting a Nitro driven car then you might find the following link useful: -

Nitro Radio Controlled Buggy, Condor, RC Car, Petrol, Futaba equipment, Gearbox, 4WD, Team Infinity 15S pull start engine - UK

Got an 18" long 4- wheel drive buggy off them a year ago, goes like mad and the engine revs up to 30,000 RPM. You can buy them in kits or ready assembled complete with remote control. Just need batteries and fuel.

Is this the sort of thing you can run on grass or dirt, and can be jumped off ramps?

YES..........they will run OK on any surface provided it's dry. And will do wheelies

There are two ways you can control them:-
a) Using an R/C pistol grip controller.
b) Or a normal flat transmitter with joystick controls as used for flying model aircraft.

As I fly model aircraft I prefer using the above, but it's a matter of choice.

You will also need battery packs for the radio receiver inside the buggy, and batteries for the transmitter plus chargers.
