Take the Porsche 356 A Coupé for a spin around the living room. At first, you might bump into a few things, but after a few laps, you’ll be handling this remote controlled car like a pro.

Ideal for collectors or car enthusiasts, the amazingly detailed 1:18 scale model of this classic ‘50s vehicle is made by Schuco from long-lasting die-cast metal. Adorned with silver colored paintwork and real rubber tires, everything about the Porsche 356 A Coupé is true down to the very last detail. Open the door and you’ll be treated to a dashboard that features a padded top and curved, single-piece windshield. You can also open the boot and bonnet may also be opened, and you’ll find the tank and a spare tire in the boot.

The remote control lets you switch on the front and rear lamps, set the blinker, beep the horn and the sound the engine.  When you’re ready to take it for a spin, you can reach speeds of up to 1.8 miles per hour.

A great way to kill time at the office, you can set up your motor rallies, as the 4-channel remote control allows four vehicles to race against each other. It comes with a rechargeable lithium battery with 550 mA-h supplies power for about 30 minutes of driving fun. It takes about 2 to 3 hours to recharge and the sounds can be switched off. The remote Porsche 356 A Coupé retails for around £169 (about $260).
