The Poseidon-X (Japanese: ポセイドンX, Poseidon Ekkusu) is a Mini 4WD car released by Tamiya in November 1993 as an add-on body parts set for existing Super Mini 4WD cars. Later, Tamiya would release the more completed Black Special version of the same car in limited quantities. Due to the above circumstances, the Poseidon-X is considered a very rare model by many enthusiasts, and has been re-released since.

It was featured in the manga The Wind Racer! Otokogi as Ryou Hayami's machine.

General info

The Poseidon-X features a much different design compared to the other machines appearing in The Wind Racer! Otokogi. It features a small rear spoiler and an air-duct placed behind the canopy. There's also the front section which acts as a spoiler which is a recurring theme in the series.

Due to the fact that Ryou Hayami is an aqua racer, the car is originally colored in navy blue.

The body can be attached to any rear-motor chassis, although the Super-1 Chassis and Super-II Chassis are recommended.

For the Black Special variant, it was equipped with the white, large diameter 3-spoke lightweight wheels paired with the black Avante-type slick tires. The chassis frame, the A parts and the curve-type sideguard were molded in gray, magenta and green respectively. It doesn't comes with a standard motor.
