Let me start off by saying that the following video is 15 minutes long, but if you’re a slot car fan, an Audi fan and a small model car fan, then it would be worth using 15 minutes to watch it.
Audi wanted a detailed slot-car racetrack with detailed cars. To create what they had in their minds, the guys at Audi Canada approached Slot Mods USA to build this miniature raceway with 1:32 scale Audi A4 models. The A4s were made from scratch and each one had to handle in a way that demonstrates the characteristics of Audi’s quattro all-wheel-drive system.
Audi wanted the experience to be as real as possible and wanted those racing the slot cars to be able to have a view of the track that makes them feel as though they are in the driver’s seat. To do this, Audi asked that the car’s have iPad controllers. Each A4 has an in-car camera that puts the person controlling the car right in the middle of the action.
The detail that went into this project is amazing.
