Carisma M48S Audi Sport Quattro S1 [Photo Gallery]

Carisma's M48S Audi Sport Quattro S1 is certainly a sight to behold. With its sharp lines and boxy stature, it's hard to believe a vehicle with that much presence can be so fast (and nimble). Whether you're throwing this 1/8-scale rally car around on pavement or kicking up dirt like its 1:1 counterpart, this car is quite an entertaining piece of machinery.

I was fortunate enough to have Carisma send me one of these new M48S models to review, and let me tell you, it's a fun machine. Not only is it powerful (sometimes a little too powerful) right out of the box, but it's body is stunningly crafted and does an amazing job of replicating the full-sized 1985 Audi Sport Quattro S1 rally car.

If you have yet to see this 1/8-scale R/C rally car up close, here's a gallery of my tabletop and pavement-posed pictures:

The Carisma M48S Audi Sport Quattro S1 is priced at $369.99 and is available through Carisma and its dealers. Visit to learn more about this 1/8-scale brushless R/C rally car.
