• Traxxas X0-1 is the Bugatti Veyron of all RC race cars

The Traxxas X0-1 can hit 0-60 mph in 2.3 seconds and 0-100 mph in 4.92 seconds without even breaking a sweat. Sounds like the perfect recipe for a high-powered supercar, right?

The only caveat is that it’s not an actual supercar; it’s a remote-controlled race car from RC manufacturer, Traxxas. The little ball of lightning is so ridiculously insane that it even has a built-in speed monitor and RPM monitoring. Of course, all of the out-of-this-world characteristics of the X0-1 comes with a pretty hefty price - literally.

Set to go on sale on December 30, 2011 - makes for an awesome belated Christmas present! - the Traxxas X0-1 will come with an eye-popping price tag of $1,100.

Dreamy eyes and itchy hands looking to own the X-01 will have some extra convincing to do to prove to Santa Claus that they’ve been good boys and girls this year.

For our money, it’s going to be extremely difficult to part with over a thousand dollars for a remote-controlled car. But if we still had disposable income to play with, we’d be the first in line at the toy store to fetch a piece of this speed demon.

Kirby’s first exposure into the world of automobiles happened when he caught Knight Rider on television as a five-year old boy. David Hasselhoff didn’t leave much of an impression on him (that happened later on in Baywatch), but KITT certainly did. To this day, Kirby remains convinced that he will one day own a car with the same ‘spirit’ as the original KITT (not the 2008 monstrosity). He doesn't know when that will be, but until then, he’s committed to expressing his love for KITT, and all cars for that matter, here at TopSpeed.  Read full bio

Is this still on sale? Well, I hope so. I will ask Santa to give me this. I found it lunatic but boy this is something I will surely enjoy. And I just left my jaw open at the same time while watching it. smiley
