Tamiya - Team Hahn Racing MAN TGS (TT-01 Type-E Chassis)_2 copyWeighing in at a colossal 5,400kg, the trucks in the European Truck Racing Championship are truly the heavyweights of motorsport. But size isn’t the only thing that’s extreme about these incredible machines. The Team Hahn Racing MAN TGS truck is powered by a huge 1,100hp turbocharged diesel engine. To get that phenomenal power from the engine to the tarmac is no easy task, which is why the truck takes advantage of a Mechanical 16-speed ZF gearbox to get it up to speed. In 2015, driver Joachim Hahn piloted the truck to a creditable 3rd position in the Championship.

 

This form of the Team Hahn Racing MAN TGS is accurately rendered by a 4-part Lexan body, which also includes realistic depictions of the engine top and more. Side mirrors, coupler and more are recreated using separately molded parts, for a super-authentic look. The body sits atop a TT-01 Type-E shaft-driven 4WD chassis, and is paired with specially-designed wheels and 70mm diameter tires.
