This DIY car kit from Gakken can be really fun to build. It takes just two hours to assemble, has its very own vacuum engine, and once you pour in the alcohol fuel, all you have to do is put the car in gear and watch it run. The car’s design looks cool and tinkering with the little steering wheel could be fun. The only glitch is that the manual only comes in Japanese. If you can read Japanese, or if you are confident enough to do all the assembly by yourself, $210 can get you this car.
