The Story

2016 was Audi’s last year contesting the World Endurance Championship.  That year’s R18 was arguably the most fearsome weapon produced in 18 years of competition and 13 Le Mans wins.  Beautiful in a brutish way, it is wonderfully efficient aerodynamically.

And the car’s aerodynamics made it a singular challenge for AFX when creating the body in 1/64th scale.  In fact, this is the most complex body we have ever made with 15 full depth body openings, way more than we or anyone else has ever done.

Audi campaigned two cars in 2016.  The #7 actually won the first race of the year at Silverstone but was excluded from the results when it was found that the underbody failed an after-race check.  The two car team finished 2nd overall in the 2016 Championship.

The black presentation livery was the way the car was presented to the press in 2015 and they were stunned to see that Audi had abandoned their historic shades of grey and silver livery.  But when the car showed up to race, it had changed back.

The white paintable version of the car is perfect for serious modeler’s who want to create their own special livery and serious racers who want a different look for their favorite speedster.

Because of our Mega G+ chassis, the lowest, narrowest chassis ever made in this scale, the correct proportions can be maintained along with deep aerodynamic channeling characteristic to the Audi. Oh yeah, it’s also wonderfully drivable, fast and fun!

 

CHASSIS TYPE: Mega G+ LONG Wheelbase Chassis (1.7″)

 

Sold as a full car with paintable body and chassis. Paintable body not sold separately.

Mega G+ Chassis

The Mega G+ chassis doesn’t just go faster or handle better than the competition. And it doesn’t just have the ultra-low, narrow dimensions of the original Mega G to continue the reign of the most realistic HO cars on earth. It’s smoother, more consistent, and more intuitive than any car we’ve ever built.
