Audi RS3 8p sportback : a mix of class and power condensed into a 1:18 scale model car
As our first version of the Audi RS3 8p Sportback in Misano Red was a real success, DNA Collectibles has the pleasure to introduce you to the Daytona Grey new edition!
Daytona, Daytona… Of course it reminds you of something. Either it reminds you of the Daytona International Speedway or the Daytona 500 for NASCAR races, or the Daytona 200 for motorcycle races, or even the Dodge Daytona ! In our case, this is the name of the body color we chose for the new edition of our Audi RS3 8p Sportback.
In addition to the very realistic typical Audi slender shape rendering, we have plenty of details and features to show you on this beautiful scale model car. So buckle your seat belt, and follow us into the visit !
Just once will not hurt, let’s start with the exterior of the car.
The honeycomb perforated front grill is just astonishing ! It is not only beautiful and perfectly replicated, but we also pushed the realism to the limit by adding a photo etched radiator that you can actually see through the grill. The RS3 badge and the Audi logo are very elegantly incorporated into the front grill. The exact same type of honeycomb perforated grill is also used for the two side air intakes.
The textured headlights, including the bulbs, has become a classic high standard level of quality from DNA Collectibles on all its replicas. The Audi RS3 isn’t an exception.
The Grey Rotor rims with the Audi logo integrated to the center cap completely embellish the global aspect of the wheels. Please see how the disks and the brake calipers with the RS performance logo on them look gorgeous !
Let’s move to the rear of the car now.
The twin chromed exhaust pipes are overhung by an aluminum line below the rear bumper. The four fixation points of the rear bumper are clearly visible to make you feel like you are in front of the real car. The RS3 and Audi logo badges proudly stand on the trunk door. We also accurately replicated the defrost lines of the rear window for the freezing winters.
Finally, the aluminum pack applied on the side mirrors, around the front grill and the air intakes, and along the roof racks just magnifies the final high quality rendering of our Audi RS3 Sportback.
It is time to continue our visit with the Black interior.
The main attraction there is clearly the Recaro F1 bucket seats ! What a pleasure for the eyes… But that is the sugar, we have plenty of other interesting details to talk about here. You can find the aluminum pack touch in the cockpit too : on the door handles, around the gear lever, or around the air vents.
The accuracy of the buttons of the central console and the level of details of the dashboard counters will blow your mind.
As usual, instead of just moulding everything into one bloc, we decided to add separate parts to produce the best aspect rendering, like the steering wheel with the Audi logo integrated, the side paddles, the pedals, the central mirror, the gear lever and the hand brake.
The seat belts are made of real fabric.
