The Fastest All-electric Kid’s Car Toy Available Soon

Maybe kids don’t know much about engines, powertrains, transmission, horsepower, or cars in general, but they do like toy cars and enjoy driving them. Lately, the toy car market has become quite competitive, resulting in some pretty cool and fast toy cars, that every kid would like to have. Today, these kid’s toys are a dead ringer for actual cars, and they involve a lot of technology which makes them faster, stronger and more durable. One of the most exciting models that have been made recently is the Chevrolet Corvette Stingray For Kids, which is made by Power Wheels, one of the most popular toy car manufacturers. Apart from the Chevrolet Corvette, Power Wheels have been making models of other popular vehicles, such as Ford Mustang, Cadillac Escalade, and Jeep Wrangler.

The Power Wheels Chevrolet Corvette Stingray is a small scale version of the seventh generation Corvette, which was unveiled in Detroit earlier this year, and is supposed to be available for purchase in fall of 2013. This is one of the fastest, most powerful Corvettes made so far, and the Power Wheels version of the 2014 Stingray is the fastest toy car ever made.

This kid’s toy is 52 inches long, and 26.5 inches wide, and has pretty much the same exterior design as the actual Stingray. It has the Stingray’s most distinctive features, but on a smaller scale. It has a single racing seat, and there are the fake chrome five-spoke wheels, along with Power Lock Brakes. It can support 65 pounds, which is 15 pounds more than what the KidTrax 2013 SRT Viper GTS, the main rival of the Chevrolet Corvette Stingray For Kids, can support.

The Stingray is powered by a 12V battery, that allows it to get from 0 to 6 mph, which is its top speed, in 4 seconds. Although an unfair comparison, but it’s still an interesting fact, the full-size version of the Stingray can accelerate from 0 to 60 mph in 4 seconds. The SRT Viper GTS toy car, which has a 6-volt battery, can only reach a top speed of 2.5 mph. This means that if speed is the most important thing for you and your kid, the Stingray is the obvious choice. As far as the price is concerned, at $275, the Corvette is almost twice as expensive as the Viper, which costs $145. But, there is another, upgraded version of the Kid Trax Viper, with a 16-volt battery, that can go as fast as 8 mph, and has some pretty cool features, such as FM radio that can be connected to an MP3 player, as well as LED headlights. It can support 130 pounds, and it has two seats, unlike the Stingray, which is a single-seater. However, if you want to buy your kid a toy that has so many cool features, you will have to pay about $300.

You may think that paying a couple of hundreds of dollars for a kid’s toy is too much, but it’s definitely worth it, as your kid will have a lot of fun in it and you won’t regret giving that kind of money when you see the smile on her/his face while driving it.
