    Collaboration Between Audi and CMC

    The rise of the company Audi is undoubtedly one of the most fascinating stories in the 100 odd years of automobile history. In June 1909, the top management of Horch Automobiles decided that its founder had to leave the company. Undaunted by this twist of fate, August Horch sought to launch a new automobile plant on his own. Only four weeks later, he opened his new company, Audi. The rest, as they say, is history.

    In collaboration with the Audi, CMC offers this ravishingly beautiful model car in celebration of the car manufacturer’s centennial anniversary in 2009. A diecast replica in scale 1.18, this precision model is hand assembled from over 1,600 parts. It features the extensive use of a sophisticated sheet metal technology for the detailing of functional and body parts, which is a trademark of CMC products as true collectibles.

    From the Manufacturer

    The rise of the company "Audi" is undoubtedly one of the most fascinating stories in the 100-odd years of automobile history. It began with one special name: August Horch. In June 1909, the top management of Horch decided that its founder August Horch had to leave the company. Undaunted by this twist of fate, August sought to launch a new automobile plant on his own. Only four weeks later, his dream virtually came true: The "August Horch Automobilwerke GmbH" was officially registered in Zwickau, Saxony on July 16, 1909. But the Horch plants took August to court, claiming exclusive use rights of the name "Horch" for themselves. August Horch lost the trial and had to find a new name. He wound up renaming his new plant “Audi”, the imperative case of the Latin verb "audire" meaning "Horch." in German. 2009 marks the 100th anniversary of Audi. This is reason enough for CMC to introduce a real classic miniature: the Audi Front 225 Roadster. First presented to the public in 1935, the car proved to be a real sensation for its time. Sporty and graceful, its body was a feast for the eyes. The aerodynamic line management enhanced the charming sporty look of its overall configuration in particular. CMC offers this ravishingly beautiful hand-assembled miniature of more than 1,600 single parts in three different two-tone color versions. M-075A is finished in black and yellow (black interior), M-075B, in blue and silver (red interior), and M-075C, in red and white (black interior). Each color combination brings out the glamour of this extraordinary model in a special way. The highly-detailed interior features a fully-instrumented dashboard and leather-upholstered seats, among others. The detail-exact undercarriage includes metal leaf springs, bonded brake cables, and a simulated wood frame. Mounted on the rear of the car is the removable spare wheel. Celebrate with us 100 years of Audi.
