The latest announcement from the slot car racing brand includes the Anki Overdrive Supertrucks -- the X52 and the Freewheel -- as a way for enthusiasts to race like never before. A large set of miniature racing vehicles that feature all-new tractors on the rear, the cars are designed with specialized features that come to help drivers take out the competition.

The X52 has the all-new Pulse Ram which will send any car it hits off the track, while the Freewheel has the Gravity Trap that will make any vehicle it hits lose control. Like the other vehicles on the Anki Overdrive circuit, the Supertrucks are capable of being controlled by drivers or set to drive autonomously. The Supertrucks are set for an October release by the brand.
