The E10 is a four-wheel drive, factory-assembled, fully prepared 1/10th scale street car from the same world-renowned HPI design team that is famous for user friendliness, racer appeal and usability. HPI produces some of the world's most famous and iconic radio-control model cars, such as the Savage nitro-powered monster truck series and the Baja 1/5th scale petrol-powered buggy and truck series! When it comes to RC, HPI is the leader!
Fully assembled, pre-painted and ready to go right out of the box, the E10 Gran Turismo is equally at home on the shelf as it is on the street! Don't be afraid to drive the E10 hard, it can take the punishment of real racing!
Amazing scale looks, extreme attention to detail and officially licensed racing decals combine to give you a unique racing model car that allows you to experience the thrill of circuit racing combined with the ultimate joy of RC car ownership! What scale model collector hasn't wished they could actually drive their models around - well, now you can and it's easier than ever!
The Ford GT bodyshell supplied with the E10 Gran Turismo is pre-painted in the authentic white sheen that identifies it as the car from the Gran Turismo promotional material. Every curve and line of the full-size car is present in this scaled-down one-tenth size representation, down to the vents, scoops and wheel openings. Applied carefully to the outside of the bodyshell are fully licensed sponsor decals for a totally really look that will truly impress your friends!
The E10 Gran Turismo rolls on the exact same 5-spoke 'mag' type wheels that the real version uses, wrapped with real treaded rubber tyres that provide authentic scale looks. Once you're driving the car, you'll find the tyres provide astounding grip as well! Looking inside the wheels, you will see brake discs that rotate with the wheel, and separate brake calipers that stay in place – details not included on any other RTR car! This final touch helps set the E10 apart from all the other contenders! If these wheels aren't to your taste, or if you just fancy standing out from the croud, then you'll be pleased to know that all other HPI 12mm hex touring car wheels will bolt straight on in their place.
The E10 takes performance cues from previous HPI championship-winning cars and durable design elements and bring them all together for a total package that is fun to drive, tough and featuring great performance!
The E10 uses a tough shaft drivetrain to put the power to all four wheels, giving it permanent four-wheel drive! Sealed motor gears spin the centre shaft and the front and rear differentials, which give the E10 great cornering ability. With full-time 4WD, you can tackle just about anything the road can throw at you!
The strong tub shape helps keep rocks and other debris out of the chassis, keeping the car cleaner for easy maintenance. The underside of the chassis is fully countersunk, which means it’s completely flat for driving over smooth or rough tarmac, and no screws stick out to catch on any debris that might be on your driving surface.
The lightweight drivetrain features oversized driveshafts and strong plastic parts to make it long-lasting and efficient. The motor is mounted on a unique cam motor mount that is marked for easy gear mesh alignment. A large cover protects the spur gear, and a snap-on cover keeps rocks away from the pinion and spur gear. The central driveshaft has longitudinal ribs to prevent excess flex, and is lightweight to provide maximum acceleration. The central driveshaft turns the front and rear sealed gear differentials. From the diffs, oversize outdrives spin thick dogbones to each wheel, providing power and grip for maximum four-wheel drive action!

The suspension parts (wishbones, shock towers, uprights and hubs) are all made from thick, long-wearing durable plastic so you don’t have to worry about making a few mistakes from time to time. A tough servo saver does the vital task of keeping the servo’s internal gears intact, and thick steering arms connect the servo to the front steering knuckles to protect the many moving parts of the steering system. An extra-wide, tough foam front bumper protects the car's front end and bodyshell during crashes and impacts. Protecting the rear of the car is a cool venturi-style bumper that looks like it came right off a GT racing car!

All HPI RTR kits feature easy-to-use radio gear and electronics, and the E10 cars are no different. Right out of the box you will get great performance and superb reliability from HPI electronics! Every HPI E10 car is equipped with a narrowband high frequency dual channel AM pistol grip radio. The realistic steering wheel feel of this type of radio encourages the RC beginner to think of the E10 as a real car driving around a race course, and the feel of pulling back on the throttle trigger is just like stomping on the accelerator of a real car! The HPI TF-1 radio transmitter features interchangeable frequency crystals, a retractable aerial, easy access to radio adjustments and simple battery replacement. The transmitter is a compact size to make it easy for you to get straight to driving your car. The comfortable pistol-shape controller fits easily in the hand and the steering wheel replicates the control of the real thing. The E10 features standard RC components, including a reversing speed controller to allow you to back out of any trouble you might get into, plus a strong standard battery with wall charger. Pick up an extra battery from your local model shop or a fast battery charger for even more run time with your E10 Gran Turismo! If you want more speed it's easy to bolt in a faster motor - the stock speed controller can take faster tuned stock motors from 21 or higher turns for a noticeable boost in top speed.
With famous HPI quality and support, plus proven HPI electronics, you will get a fantastic RTR value from the E10. Spare parts and replacements will be easily available through the HPI distribution network for years to come – this is no toy store car! Every piece of the car is replaceable, and ordering any spares can be done through your local model shop.
As with all HPI cars and trucks, you get a full, in depth instruction manual with step by step instructions that allow you to easily disassemble and reassemble your car for maintenance and easy servicing.
As with all E10s, there is great range of option parts available to allow you to customise, strengthen and increase the performance of you E10 GT. The range of options for the E10 is always increasing as the HPI R&D team churn out new and improved stuff.
