Audi Quattro Christmas Goodies Introduced
The company today announced that it is offering a 1:43 scale model of the US quattro, which is made from die-cast aluminum and comes with a multitude of details.
“Car enthusiasts wishing they could scythe through the snow this Christmas like Stig Blomqvist in an Audi quattro may appreciate having their dreams fuelled by this beautifully detailed 1:43 scale model of the Eighties original in its road-going form. The 1:43 model Audi quattro is made from high quality die-cast aluminium and retains every detail of the original’s styling – from the four rings livery on the doors to the ‘quattro’ tags on the back passenger windows,” stated the press release.
We’ll remind you that the actual car, which came to the world at the 1980 Geneva Auto Show, uses a turbocharged five-cylinder 200 hp engine and an ultra-capable four-wheel-drive system.
Audi also offers a mini Quattro for children, with the vehicle coming with five-spoke wheels, a horn, low-noise tires, as well as a trailer hitch that can be used for the optional quattro trailer.
“Next generation Audi fans can also take delivery of their own mini quattro (RRP £65.49), which features five-spoke wheels, a horn to warn wayward bystanders and pets, ‘factory-fit’ trailer hitch and low-noise tires as standard. The ride-on quattro is available in a sporty red or executive silver finish,” stated the press release.
Our say: About that trailer... how can a "quattro" only have two wheels?
