CMC Audi 225 Front Roadster, 1935 (white/red)
Limited Edition 4000 pcs.
At the Berlin Automobile Show in February 1935, the Audi Front 225 Roadster was one of the most admired cars. Its sporty-styled body and dynamic configuration caused a great deal of fascination among spectators. With the presentation of this 1:18 scale high-end Roadster model, CMC has managed to resurrect a nearly forgotten milestone of the Roadster era embedded in the elegant spirit of the thirties of the twentieth century.
After August Horch left the Horch plants, the ingenious pioneer of automobile manufacturing founded a new factory on July 16, 1909 in Zwickau, Saxony and named it Audi.
The naming of “Audi” was actually inspired by the Latin translation of his last name. In 2009, we are looking back upon the 100 years of a famous automobile mark. To mark an anniversary like this, it behoves CMC to release a classic, high-end, 1:18 scale model in celebration. Together with Audi, we decided on the Audi Front 225 Roadster, which was first presented to the public in 1935.
What with its extraordinary sporty look, the graceful curves of its well-balanced body, and its holistically dynamic line management, this Audi 225 touched off a sensation among automobile enthusiasts upon its first public appearance. CMC offers this ravishingly beautiful model of more than 1,600 single parts in three different two-tone colour combinations, which further the appeal of its charisma and elegance. Enjoy the incredible depth of details and high value of this exceptional model.
