This $2,300 Toy Jeep Wrangler Is Worth Every Penny
Jeep Wranglers are notoriously expensive—even when they’re 1/8th scale. Capo Racing just released a two-foot replica of the iconic Jeep off-roader and it’s everything you could want in a Wrangler, with the exception of it being so tiny.

So, the big question is: Is it worth spending $2,300 on a toy when you can buy an older used car for the same price? Honestly, the details on this replica make it worth the price tag. Coming in at two feet long, 10 inches high, and 10 inches wide, this teeny tiny Jeep might just look like your typical model car—but there’s a huge bonus you might not expect. Everything. Works.
There are reclining seats. An itsy bitsy dashboard. The hood can even open to reveal an engine bay that is damn near perfect. Its parts are so intricate, if you were to look at it without knowing it’s a toy, you might actually think it’s real.
