The Nikko Turbo Panther was a 1/16 scale, ready to run, full function R/C buggy released in 1986 which was a great rival to the Taiyo Jet Hopper released the same year. The Turbo Panther was enormously popular worldwide, arriving at a time when there were almost no other ready-to-run R/C buggies on the market at all. Equipped with working suspension, two speeds, soft rubber tyres and highly realistic looks, it was the perfect buggy to enter the world of off-road R/C. It’s high top speed and “turbo” function on the transmitter made it a much loved classic toy of the mid 1980s.
