Satisfy your classic car craving with Vaterra’s new ’69 Custom Corvette

Satisfy your classic car craving with Vaterra’s new ’69 Custom Corvette

The “Adventure Driven” mad men at Vaterra have done it again. They’ve just announced a new on-road, RTR vehicle that’s based on their V100-S chassis.  Estimated selling price looks to be $289.99 ($334.99 retail) with a release date of early June 2014.  As for the car itself, if you’re familiar with some of their other on-road offerings (’67 Mustang, ’69 Camaro, C.H.P. Camaro, ) you’re already familiar with this platform.

Aside from the chassis, most of the inner-workings of this vehicle are the same, if not very similar to what you’ll find with the other on-road machines from Vaterra RC.  There are some nice touches that make this Corvette a unique offering though.  From the “new” body style, to the low-profile tires and large rims, you’ll surely have a good time with this vehicle.
