Welcome to AutoGuide.com’s Daily Diecast feature. Every day this week, we’ll be showcasing an extra special diecast model car from the web and showing you exactly why it’s awesome.
When you were a kid, you may have dreamt of owning sports car.
Well, here’s one you can actually afford! This spectacular diecast model is none other than the Audi R8, a vehicle that turns heads every time it takes a spin on city streets. Fortunately for this model, it’s small enough to zip through any kind of traffic – so long as a human hand is holding it.
While this 1:18 scale’s exterior is flawless, what is possibly the most beautiful part of this model is the inside. Maisto, the company that manufactures this R8, took the time to install Recaro bucket seats, complete with a pair of ravishing red five-point harnesses. If these seats don’t scream “sports car”, we really don’t know what does.
This model features a metal chassis with some plastic parts. Both doors, the hood and trunk open, although we’re not entirely sure what kind of figure could fit inside.
According to recent reviews, this model comes in a variety of stunning colors, including “frozen matte black”, have perfectly functioning doors and in all, is well worth the $34 price tag.
