Kyosho are proud to reintroduce the original Optima released in the 80s with some modern updates. Redesigned by the original designer, the Optima has been carefully redeveloped from ground up to bring back the best of the buggies in the good old days and to offer a true fun to drive feel.

The Optima is designed based on the original version released in the 80s. We have updated several areas but kept the parts compatible with the original chassis. This allows customer owning the original kit to restore their cars. More photos here.
