The Remote Controlled Caterham R500

The Caterham Superlight R500 may be small and lightweight, and on many a petrolheads' wish list, but only now is it tiny enough to fit into a Christmas stocking.

Caterham Cars' most rapid road-going vehicle has been recreated to scale complete with remote control and BBC Top Gear's The Stig behind the wheel.

The miniature Caterham R500 celebrates the model's star turn on BBC Top Gear last December.

The full size version demonstrated its blistering speed around the programme's famous test track, recording one of the fastest ever laps, and scooping the show's coveted Car of the Year award for 2008.

At 1:16 scale, with full function radio control, the Caterham Superlight R500 model makes for an ideal gift for anyone over the age of 8 years.

Not only is the Caterham R500 available in two colours - the famous white and red stripe, plus the yellow and black combination - but both are on separate radio frequencies, allowing owners to race each other.

Exclusively sold from Marks & Spencer stores nationwide, the remote controlled Caterham R500 is priced £19.50.
