58057 The Bigwig real car reference

58057 The Bigwig real scale reference 1
Ok, this is hard to believe, but the source for this info is Tamiya! The Bigwig is inspired by a real-life car! These pictures are from the famous Pike's Peak hill climb race in USA. And as often, Tamiya looked to USA when making models, it is a fairly big market... It is not 100%, but this is what the special invited designer, Takuya Yura (president of Mooncraft in Shizuoka, Japan), was inspired by when designing the 10th anniversary RC car from Tamiya in 1986. These cars drove in the Open Wheels class. Typically 2WD chassis with a beast of an V8 in the back.
