The Toyota Hilux Bruiser is a full-size version of the Tamiya model of old.
The truck was lifted and fitted with 35-inch tires to make it look like the scale model.
The suspension was upgraded, new gears were installed in the differential and the wheel arches were flared.
The truck's livery was recreated from the Tamiya model.
There's a (fake) on-off switch in the bed, body clips, skid plates, tube bumpers and even a giant antenna on the roof.
It's fully drivable, using the Hilux's stock 148-horsepower diesel I4 mated to a six-speed manual transmission and all-wheel drive.
Toyota will use the vehicle for marketing purposes around the UK.
Sadly, this is just a one-off, so you won't be able to pick one up to match your Tamiya model.
