CARISMA M40S AUDI RS5 DTM

This super-scale street machine is ready for driveway DTM action

Ask any RC’er who’s been around the block once or twice to name the brand that makes the most realistic models based on full-size on-road racers, and they’ll likely say “Tamiya.” And for sure, Tamiya has earned it. But another brand that isn’t as well known for scale race cars (but should be) certainly gives The Big T a run for the money: Carisma. As you can see, the Audi RS5 DTM pictured here is a real stunner, with every crease, curve, spoiler, and wing perfectly represented. There’s even an included LED light set, but you’ll need to install that yourself. Otherwise, all the painting, assembling, and decaling is handled at the factory. Under the Audi lid, you’ll find Carisma’s M40S chassis. It’s a pretty typical shaft-drive tourer, but it does have a few interesting details—take a look. TESTING

New Cars for 2023

The past few years have been like a sadistic version of Groundhog Day. While the future has felt on hold, it's about to make up for lost time. Judging by the new-car offerings for 2023, we predict we'll be leaving our houses, going on- and off-road, in vehicles that are sleek, rugged, high-tech, bewinged, bedazzled, and dazzling. While some aging favorites retire, nascent companies offerings will rev and whir onto our streets. New-car temptation will come in many forms with electricity, old-fashioned gas grunt, or a combo of both to your covetous heart and, manufacturers hope, your garage. We present the cars, trucks, and SUVs for 2023.
