What it's Like to Drive the debis Mercedes 190E DTM

Tamiya USA - Wed, 11/13/2019 - 13:51

There's a good chance that, at some point, we've all wondered what it would be like to drive the full size version of our favorite Tamiya car.

Here's a short video of the guys over at The Drive piloting the debis Mercedes 190 E DTM car around the Hockenheim circuit! It is a museum piece so I'm sure he didn't get to completely air it out, but I bet the experience was like none other!

Enjoy!
