Sospan, they have a "drive" system which consists of steerable wheels, two forward speeds, reverse and neutral. Powered by 16 rubber bands that you wind up by rotating the spare wheel on the rear. Of course you can't change direction or speed once it's moving but it doesn't go that far anyway. RC would be nice but I don't think it would work on this model.
By the way the doors open, the bonnets open, the V8 pistons go up and down and the front has suspension. It's very well engineered and goes together very well.
Brought back memories of when I was a lad, when I made Airfix type models. SWMBO kept making comments like "you're such a kid" and "how's your toy coming along?", but I thoroughly enjoyed assembling it.
