Tomica - Audi R8



This is a die cast car model of Audi R8 produced by Tomica. This Audi R8 is a mid-engine, 2-seater sports car with all-wheel drive system. The car was exclusively designed, developed, and manufactured by Audi AG's high performance private subsidiary company, "Quattro GmbH", and is based on the Lamborghini Gallardo platform.
You can read more about the car from here Wikipedia.

For now, let's have a look at this die cast car model from Tomica;






The painting finishing is in the high quality - exactly what we could expect from Tomica while the not much to talk about on the exterior detailing but the we could see the Audi logo is nicely done there;



Being from the regular series in Tomica's offering, the wheels design is the typical Tomica wheels thus not much to talk about;




There is some simple engine parts detailing you can see there;




Overall, simplicity is the name of the game but even so Tomica did well on the finishing quality even for this regular line up in their offering and for most casual collectors this should be good enough though if you expect more then probably you could try get the same car model from other manufacturers which probably comes with different price tag but then again, it's all depends on the collector's personal taste. As for me, I am pretty happy with this coz I love the red color on this one.

  1. Tomica is very consistent in the way they design their diecast... is like what you said in a publication some time ago... is a niche brand with a specific target and the people who buy them are looking for these products as they are... for me are still very simple, however the paint job is neat !!!... i would say that this R8 would look better with those side panels (behind the doors) in black, instead of that silver, but the rest is just fine... =)
