Audi has been working on a small scale project: the Auto Union Type C e-tron. You might remember Auto Union as the German monster company that consists of Audi, DKW, Horch, and Wanderer, and e-tron, which is the electric system which will power the car maker's EVs in the near future. The Auto Union e-tron is a toy that Audi will be bringing to the International Toy Fair in Nuremberg next month.
The Auto Union e-tron, based on the limited-edition pedal car model sold through quattro, has an aluminum and carbon-look body and it is powered by an electric motor that powers the rear wheels.
Power for the motor comes from a lithium-ion battery. Kids and adults up to 1.80 meters (5’11”) in height can be accommodated in this toy. But with the size of the car, motor and battery, it only has a total power output of 1.5 hp and a torque of 40 Nm. This toy car has a top speed of 30 km/h (18.64 mph).
Audi design’s exclusive soccer table will also be displayed at the 62nd International Toy Fair in Nuremberg. Interestingly, this exclusive soccer table has been noted for its Vorsprung durch Technik, or advancement through technology.
This is primarily because of the materials, finish and technical workmanship – all of the highest standards -- employed on this new toy. In fact, high-strength plastic and aluminum were added to the toy’s wooden core by hand. As a testament to its high quality, the table can be for professional tournament use.
Audi design will initially produce just 20 tables, each having a price of €12,900. On the other hand, quattro GmbH is displaying prototypes of baby and children's products inspired by the world of motorsport like the racing bodysuit, the pit stop baby bottle, the mini sound absorber kit (pacifier) and the power/brake socks.
Moreover, Audi is displaying a study of the successor of the current "Audi Junior quattro" ride-on toy car at the 62nd International Toy Fair in Nuremberg. Not to be absent at the fair is Audi’s high-quality range of classic car-related toys like remote-controlled models and plush cars as well as the Audi motorsport bear.
The carmaker will also display Wörthersee models of the Audi A1 to a scale of 1:87, among others. Visitors at the 62nd International Toy Fair in Nuremberg -- industry professionals, commercial resellers and journalists – could take a better look of the Audi’s toys at the carmaker’s exhibit stand.
Its participation at the 62nd International Toy Fair should allow Audi to increase people’s awareness of its wide range of toys. The International Toy Fair in Nuremberg is expected to attract around 2,600 exhibitors from February 3 to 8.
