Default Vintage Kyosho Lamborghini

Does anyone know anything about this car?
What model is it other than "Kyosho Lambo" ?
I've had it for over 10 years and I bought it off a guy that came into the gas station I was working at for $40.
The gear cover says Kyosho on it and that's all I know about the car.
Any info would be greatly appreciated.

The Body could be an after market body so that's not much help, and body off pics will help us to be able to identify it.

That is for sure the original body.
It mounts very different from any I've seen.
No body clips, the front just has a bar on the car and a spongy pad with a u shaped piece that slips on the bar in the front...
If you run into something the front mount pops off.

The rear mounts are pivoting and spring loaded and do not come off in the event of a crash.
Very different setup.

Those are all the pics I have on hand, I know pics of the chassis would help immensely and I will try to post some tomorrow.
Thanks for looking and I hope you will check back in a couple days for new pics.

It has a double decker chassis, or whatever you call that, like the AE NTC3 I think.










Weird front body mount connected to body


Rear body mounts, pivoting and spring loaded. Not connected to body. Body just has holes in the rear.

I can see a heatsink for a mechanical ESC in the package and I think that was not on the car when I got it.
But I do remember it being a 25th anniversary edition.
Now that I see the box I think it did come with the box.
I vividly remember it coming with a nice Futaba stick TX that was in a box.
I think it was an Attack.
But that got lost or traded over the years.
Just amazing, RC memories rushing back is a beautifull thing!
If I could remember 1/2 the cars I've owned would be a miracle!
I'm 1/2 braindead...

Keep it coming!!!

So, anyone got comments on the video?
Is it fast for an old car or what?
I was running 4200mAh pack and tall gears.

I thought it was running pretty well for a vintage car, a bit sloppy handling but a good set of tyres would fix that.

I think I read that it is an Ultima II chassis ? but when i searched Ultima in google it was all buggys, but it was the same chassis so I think thats the Ultima chassis
