1/1 MINI 4WD ADVAN Aero Avante Limited Edition

At the “Osaka Auto Messe 2023”, where a wide variety of custom cars and one-off models were on display, this car stood out from the crowd. The car displayed at the Yokohama Tire booth looked like Tamiya’s famous “MINI 4WD” 1/32 plastic model kit, but it was a one-off show model created in cooperation between Yokohama Tire and Tamiya Inc. And this giant MINI 4WD “ADVAN Aero Avante Limited” can actually be driven by a driver at 180km/h on a race track!

One-off model collaborated by Yokohama Tire and Tamiya

It is a single-seat vehicle that uses the air-cooled flat-four engine and front suspension of a Volkswagen Type 1 (Beetle) on an original tubular frame, and the bodyshell is made of FRP. Of course, it is equipped with Yokohama tires. The front and rear wheels are Advan Sports with 295/30ZR22 tires.

While the Osaka Auto Messe, Tamiya’s 1/32 MINI 4WD kit “ADVAN Aero Avante Limited” was released in limited quantities at the Yokohama Tire booth. Many fans bought them in bulk, showing the enthusiasm of MINI 4WD & ADVAN fans.
