Hard Drive It: Audi R8 Diecast Model with 250-640GB Data Storage Capacity

Many gear heads like ourselves, like to decorate their office desk with scale model cars that chances are, will never be able to afford in this life. Now what better for our congested workspace if the scale model could also incorporate a hard drive? Well, at least that seems to be the idea behind the products of a company called Flash Rods that specializes on scale model cars with integrated flash or hard drives.

The company's latest creation is a 1:18 scale Audi R8 that incorporates a hard drive disk that connects up to your PC by USB to store all your files. The company said that the Audi R8 will be available for sale on November 1st, in 250GB, 500GB and 640GB configurations and numerous colors.

The company hasn't announced prices yet for the R8, but the already available 1:18 scale Dodge Challenger and Nissan GT-R HDDs both start from $209.99 for the 250GB versions.
