WH Bond have been a loyal Toyota customer for 28 years having purchased no fewer than 200 Hilux pick-ups for the business during that time. To say thank you in a novel way Toyota presented W.H. Bond with a radio-controlled model version of the Hilux, complete with company livery in recognition of its custom.
Nicole Harding, Sales Representative W.H Bond, said: “This is a wonderful and thoughtful gift. The W.H. Bond livery features all the different areas of our business. Toyota is a valued supplier and we have a great relationship with its fleet team and our local centre, Snows Toyota, in Plymouth. We look forward to receiving many more life-size Hilux in the future.”
For the petrol-heads, the radio-controlled Tamiya Hilux is also a seriously capable off-roader on a small scale, featuring a ladder frame, live axle suspension with metal housing, leaf springs and oil dampers. A front metal under-guard helps the model tackle tough conditions. It has an electric motor linked to a three-speed gearbox, delivering power to all four wheels.
