The Italian Thoroughbred

Compagnucci Racing Model Cars are the Hottest on the market. Not some mass produced toy department stuff, these cars are built in Italy with performance you can expect.

Unlike other cars on the market that use model glow fuel, this is the first 1/8 scale car available with a powerful genuine gasoline engine using a real automotive type electronic spark ignition and forced air cooling.
Not a little .21 glow engine

The Compagnucci gasoline-powered car is inexpensive to operate due to an efficient, two stroke engine design that uses unleaded fuel with a small amount of oil mixed in as a lubricant.
