The Tamiya MAN TGX 26.540 6X4 XLX truck was announced as one of the new vehicles being released in 2022. This is the pre-painted light metallic blue version of the MAN semi.


Also known as transporters that are used by F1 teams today, MAN Company’s tractor truck, the TGX 26.540 6×4 XLX was awarded “The 2008 Truck of the Year.” This award-winning truck comes reproduced as a 1/14-scale electric RC model. The model features a ladder frame chassis with aluminum channels, suspension with metal leaf springs and friction dampers, and rear axles equipped with differentials. Providing this truck with a realistic scale finish are parts which feature two kinds of metal-plating and metal transfers to beautifully depict details such as the front grille’s emblem. Furthermore, the chassis features a 3-speed transmission which allows gear shifting while driving via a 4-channel transmitter, with the sound and lighting actions reproduced by the separately sold Multi-Function Control (MFC-01) unit.
