Description[]

  • Another sand storm is brewing, the terrain treacherous, but nothing can stop Desert Thunder V16 from leading the Matchbox team to victory at the Paris to Dakar Rally. Conquering up to 500 miles a day across mud, sand and rocks, Desert Thunder V16 is the true hero of this trans-continental race. —From the 2010 Desert Endurance card
  • The Desert Thunder V16 simulates a working suspension. This means the axle is mounted on a pivot, allowing some wheel oscillation up and downwards.
