Introducing......the EXOTHERMIC!

 

 

Is this the vigilante vehicle of super hero Exo-man?

 

Is this the future of a LeMans racing proto-type?

 

Is this a criminal Get-A-Way hot-rod?

 

Is this some experimental test-bed?

 

It is...

 

The Surrealistic Vision of the Baby-Boomers realized in glorious metals and fabrics paints and materials...and nothing more.

 

Or is it? ?  ?   ?    ?     ?

 

Thanks to:

 

Gene Adams of GenesWorld  for creating a wonderful evolution of the Detroit Bat-car. Tireless effort that everyone can enjoy.

 

Jarius Watson who painted another classic and provided the Snuggler-2 chassis.

Nice one Régis; TrueScale did a great job on the body too, almost looks better than the original! Great exhaust system too... 

 

How does it run? Seems a little overpowered and light - chassis like this were more designed for smaller wheels, with "moo" on the tires and long, banked tracks...

Very nice Régis! 

 

I just rediscovered my own TrueScale version of this body, and I think I'll steal your body mounting system... 

 

Joyeux Noël,
