Audi R8 model car very favorable to us
In the DNA of the Audi R8, the know-how from numerous motorsport successes of the brand is: The racing prototype Audi R8 won since 2000 13 times the 24-hour race at Le Mans, the R8 LMS headed since 2009 seven overall victories in 24- hour race at. We like the model car of the new series coupe 1:43 particularly well, offering Herpa for comparably priced 27,95. In this context, a side note: The version of the model in promotional packaging costs 2,00 Euro more with us. You are therefore served very well here because the Drive-Forum of VW in Berlin will cost an Audi R8 in 1:43 whopping 50.00 Euros! Smooth! Quite expensive, as we think, but at least one must count no small change when buying an R8 there. Our opinion: Dear 2 pieces with us as 1 piece there. Colors there are finally enough.
