AUDI R8 - 1:18 SCALE DIECAST MODEL

 

As far as current sports cars go the Audi R8 is unique. Although derived from a Lamborghini Gallardo, Audi went a few steps further; first utilising an aluminium monocoque built around a space frame and then fitted with a longitudinally mounted mid-engine of up to 5.2L in a V10 configuration its power is transmitted through Audi's 'trademark' quattro permanent four-wheel drive system.

The R8 was introduced by the German automaker Audi AG in 2006 and was exclusively designed, developed, and manufactured by Audi AG's high performance private subsidiary company, quattro GmbH. To produce the eight to fifteen R8's a day at the 28 million redeveloped Neckarsulm factory, seventy workers fit 5,000 unique parts by hand.
