Go Gear: Our favourite vehicles - in miniature

Remote-controlled cars can be great fun, especially when they come in the shape of these three.

The Gallardo is a class act.

Perfect price Range

There's no doubt they're popular on the motorways of the UAE, but if they're out of your price range or you think the children would appreciate a car just like dad's, then it's time to invest in a radio-controlled Range Rover Sport. At 1:24 scale of the real thing, this little mean machine has excellent model detailing, including realistic-looking alloys, independent suspension and good handling.

Check it out at the Space Toys shop on Amazon.com. Dh65.


Children will Bug you for one

It just wouldn't be right to feature remote-controlled cars and not have a monster truck involved. Say hello to the Bug Crusher. We're assured it has all the technology of a top spec RC car, with an aluminium centre drive shaft, speed control, aluminium capped oil filled shocks, performance differentials, aluminium radio tray and much more. We're less sure about it's abilities at killing insects but, hey, you can't have everything.

Green machine

Listen, you're fooling no one, as we know for sure that not even hard men like Jean-Claude Van Damme can deny having a soft spot for a Lamborghini Gallardo. And not only a Gallardo, a limited edition flashy green one at that. This baby is a detailed 1:10 scale piece of kit with amazing chrome rims and Brembo brakes. Even the headlights and taillights can be controlled.
