Audi Racer Scale Model - Web Exclusive

The electrically propelled reworking of the 1930s racing classic is a half-size model, based on a limited edition pedal car.

Jan 26, 2011

Audi will unveil the latest in its range of e-tron concept studies at the International Toy Fair in Nuremberg from 3-8 February. It’s an all-electric, 1:2 scale version of the 1936 Auto Union Type C Grand Prix car.

The electrically propelled reworking of the 1930s racing classic is a half-size model, based on a limited edition pedal car. Its electric motor develops a modest 1.5hp, and a top speed of 18mph. It may not be the sprightliest Audi ever made, but it can cover up to 15 miles on just two hours of battery charge from a standard 230-volt household socket.

The body is hand-finished and made from aluminum and carbon-effect material, and at 2.32 meters long and 97cm wide, it’s suitable for children and adults up to 5’11” tall.

The electric motor drives the rear wheels, is charged by a lithium-ion battery and can develop as much as 44.25 lb-ft of torque for short periods. This enables the car to reach a top speed of more than 18mph. The Type C prototype is also equipped with reverse gear. There are currently no plans to offer the Type C e-tron for sale. Audi will also showcase a range of innovative baby and children’s products at Nuremberg Toy Fair that have been engineered by quattro GmbH.

A racing bodysuit, ‘power/brake’ socks, a ‘pit stop’ baby bottle and a mini ‘sound absorber kit’ were all inspired by the world of motorsport and will be available to buy. The new ‘Audi Junior quattro’ ride-on toy car will also be on show.

An exclusive fussball table from Audi design will be another innovation in Nuremberg. Its sleek styling and a high-quality finish in aluminum and high-strength plastic will be reserved for only 20 tables initially, costing $20400 each.
