Maplin have launched an offer called Magic Mega Deals, certain items have been heavily reduced with a limit of 1 per person, the offer includes this FAB BMW vs Mercedes Twin Pack RC Cars (1:24 Scale) that was £24.99 & is now down to £7.49 per set.

Thought they would make an excellent gift or stocking filler.
The cars run off two separate frequencies, so they can either be used to race against each other or separately too.

Product overview
• Race the BMW and the Mercedes against each other with these 27MHz and 40MHz full-function radio controlled cars
• Race at speeds of up to 5mph
• Go backwards and forward with full steering control
• Drive on any indoor surface
• Ready to race, requiring no assembly

What can I do with these cars?
These cars run off two separate frequencies that allow you to race against a friend using either the BMW Z3 or the Mercedes AMG. These cars are capable of reaching five miles per hour and can drive on any indoor surface – ensuring an exciting race.

How do the cars drive?
The full-function remote controllers allow you to move forwards, backwards and steer left and right at speed. You can drive your car of choice across your indoor rally course and create your own exciting races. Each car requires three AA batteries, with the controllers running off two AA batteries. Both the car and the remote can run off alkaline or rechargeable batteries.

What do I get in this pack?
This pack contains a BMW Z3 and a Mercedes AMG radio controlled car, both of which are great fun to control and look authentic. The cars operate using different radio frequencies, allowing both to be operated at the same time. This makes them an excellent choice for racing.

Thanks ordered.

thanks ordered

Requires 10 AA batteries .....I think I'll pass

Only need an Audi on hp to make the full set of "****heads on the motorway"

Ordered...thanks

Would you not be cheaper to lease the Mercedes? The depreciation will be a killer.

Not the quickest at 5mph/8kph, but you do get two. I can't see the remotes for these in any images, so they might be a bit pants.

There is also a MiniCooper S twin pack for £6.28:

At the frequency of 27MHz and 40MHz, I don't know how many you could have playing together - anyone?

I've just ordered this and bought some batteries to take it over the £10 mark to get the free £5 voucher. I got the batteries for half price (were £9.99), however, just read on the small print that the running time for each car is only 30 minutes. It would cost a lot of money to keep replacing the batteries after every 30 mins (that's if the batteries are drained in that time). Do you think it would be ok to use rechargeable batteries in these cars - only asking as it doesn't say on the battery information part? If rechargeables are ok, it might be worth investing in some at a later date I think. Thank you.

I had the same thought. Voted cold due to lack of efficient financing options for the purchase or effective hedging on the running costs.

Actually, on the information above, I've just read that you can use rechargeables, so will get some when the batteries are drained.

Great price for stocking fillers.... at just over £3.50 per car, it’s worth a pop (regardless of the batteries!)

Thanks OP, none in stock IN ENGLAND. Belfast apparently has plenty if that helps anyone... Anyone?

Just been down to Charlton store in Greenwich after reserving one. They had at least six in the baskets by the till. If this is close enough to you, may help you.

There were loads in Selly Oak store in Birmingham if it helps anyone

Thanks for posting, can someone recommend good rechargeable batteries.

At least 3 in the basket in Stratford Maplin if that helps anyone.

Cheers, Website is lying then, so best take a trip to a store if you can be bothered. They've only knocked off 10% anyway...

Thanks, ordered for my grandson (but I'm sure I'll enjoy helping him play with them). Heat added.
