Found your match..it's is a tamiya Volkswagen toureg.
Edit: not totally sure on whether or not this really is it, I am mainly judging by height comparison and wheel type.

if it comes as shown in pic than yes. ESC/motor/servo alone are worth $80-$100.

I tried a google search of that image, as well as searching threw images of "rc rally chassis" to no avail.

But even if the chassis turns out to be a off brand rc, it looks clean and the electronics alone are worth close to the price.

I'm pretty sure its not a tamiya.

I'm also pretty sure its a budget Chinese model, it may not even have a name, many of these kinds of off brand models don't.

If you can find out what it is, its definitely worth $120. The electrics alone are worth $100 as is, and I see hex hardware and alloy shocks. But this is all dependent on finding out what it is. A RC car without spare parts availability is less than worthless.

Oh, and you wanted me to name it...ok, I call it 'Bob'.

+1 The tires are Tamiya, but the chassis isn't. Not sure what it is. Would be kinda strange to stick an Orion system in a no-name chinese car.

There is no naming or branding on any of the parts at all? What's the scale?

For shame people. I'm guessing the tires threw everyone off.

T-Egg chassis pics for reference:

I don't think it's a Tamiya, in spite of the wheels/tires, now that I think about it. As others have pointed out, the shocks are not tamiya, the front/rear bumper things are different to me, don't seem to be Tamiya. At first it looked like a cover over a belt drive down the middle, but the way the motor is mounted that makes no sense - must be a shaft drive, with the spur perpendicular to the chassis length.

Interesting.

since when is the CC-01 called a T-Egg? And why...lol?

even if the chassis aint a tamiya, the electronics in it are almost worth the price.

Oh sure, I'm not saying the electronics aren't worth it. Either way, good find.

Tamiya made the CC01 chassis, and several bodies to go with it - Pajero, Unimog, Bronco, Land Cruiser, Jeep Wrangler, and VW Touareg. We call it the T-Egg for short, since spelling Touareg over and over is really annoying.

Insist on the Owner's Manual for any used or new car you are considering. Every new car comes with one and if you're selling it you don't need the book anymore. You HAVE to have the manual to identify part #'s, see exploded views for repair procedures, and in this case, you will not have to go on an internet forum and ask for help identifying it. If you can't have the book, DON'T buy it.
