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. This ideal last minute stocking filler will set you back a mere £26.99 - an impressive saving on a pristine example of the life-size equivalent.
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.
Next generation Audi fans can also take delivery of their own mini Audi Quattro (RRP £65.49), which features five-spoke wheels, a horn to warn wayward bystanders and pets, 'factory-fit' trailer hitch and low-noise tyres as standard. The ride-on Quattro is available in a sporty red or executive silver finish.
The trailer hitch is intended for the optional Quattro trailer (RRP £36.99) to combine the Audi Quattro's sporty driving attributes with the practicality of ample luggage capacity. The ride-on Audi Quattro and trailer are made from sturdy moulded plastic, designed to be stylish, durable and easy to clean.
These covetable Audi Quattros are available to order from the Audi Merchandise online shop now.
The life-size Audi Quattro with its turbocharged five-cylinder, 200PS engine and uncannily capable four-wheel-drive system made its debut at the Geneva Motor Show in 1980, and quickly became an icon. Thirty years later, Audi Quattro all-wheel drive features on virtually every model in the Audi range, including the stunning new Quattro Concept, a 186mph lightweight design study crafted from carbon fibre and aluminium that reinterprets the original Quattro formula for the 21st Century.
