You said it- it was too expensive to produce at the moment, just intended
to serve as a showcase for Audi's knowledge of aluminium space frames.

There are a couple of scale models of the Avus which are more detailed than
the HotWheels model- there's an incredible Rietze 1:87, but my favourites
are the 1:43 and 1:18 Revell models. Opening doors, detailed interior and
even space frame.
