Now I don't know about the Marklin model but I do know that the Triang example is fan driven. There is no direct drive to the wheels so I suspect it is the only genuine turbo car present in this thread. The Marklin model has traction tyres!
Is it a bird? Is it an aeroplane? It certainly isn't Superman. I know, ..... the old black and white Flash Gordon film serials used to have one of these complete with a sound decoder which went 'Aaaaarrrgh' or it might have been 'Ggrrrrrrh', but then so did everything else, probably only had one decoder. Loved the colour.
PS Why does the spell checker have trouble with my sound effects?
