If you are lusting after a 2015 Mustang, but you haven’t found room in your driveway or your wallet to add one to your collection, there’s one way you can drive one. It’s an affordable way too, but you won’t be able to drive it from the driver seat. Instead, you can drive it from 100 or so yards away—via remote control.

Vaterra’s 1/10th-scale 2015 Mustang is a convincing replica of the full-size S550. Those aren’t just hood pins, however. They hold the entire body on the V100-S chassis.

That’s right, this 2015 Mustang GT is a 10th-scale R/C version from Vaterra. And, if you’ve ever wanted an all-wheel-drive Mustang, this version might be as close as you get. Based on the company’s shaft-driven 4WD system and powered by the company’s Dynamite system, the V100-S-based 2015 Mustang is good for speeds up to 35 mph.

Apparently, it’s quite easy to drive, even at that speed thanks to the company’s Active Vehicle Control.

If you’ve ever pined for an all-wheel-drive Mustang, this might be as close as you get. The Vaterra V100-series chassis features a shaft-driven four-wheel-drive system that applies power from its Dynamite power system. It is controlled by a Spektrum DX2E 2 Channel radio, and Active Vehicle Control makes it easy to drive.

“… Spektrum AVC technology uses a combination of sensors and software algorithms to adjust steering and throttle output at a rate faster than humanly possible, facilitating a more manageable driving experience. The level of stability provided by AVC technology can be adjusted to suit your preference and feels completely natural,” the company says. “AVC Heading Hold and Throttle Management features make driving perfectly straight and taking precision turns at high speeds more manageable than ever before. There is no lag in response or limits on your control. With AVC, you’ll feel like you’re driving a finely tuned vehicle, one that handles with precision at any speed and through every turn.”

In action, it almost looks like the real thing. Check it out:

You can preorder it now for $289.99 (PN VTRO3024), and it should be available in early October. That just so happens to be when the real S550 is rumored to hit the streets, so you can park the R/C version right next to your life-size replica at its first car show.

From the badges to the taillights, the Vaterra 2015 Mustang is a detailed re-creation. Those aren’t the stock wheels, however. They are 54mm replicas of Volk CE28N wheels wearing low-profile tires.
