Collecting official merchandise, taking care of it and keeping it safe for your grandkids to be proud of isn't an easy task. And while buying power has increased exponentially, it still requires to be very meticulous at times, to relish the whole process. And we auto enthusiasts are known to be good at this, aren't we? Be it die-cast cars or race-tickets, it's always a pleasure to keep everything safe and gaze through the memorabilia every once in a while.
German carmaker Audi has launched something similar, something that will not only appeal to the old school Audi fans but also the younger generation, who spends more time collecting wallpapers than HotWheels, more time playing simulator games on their PC than visiting race tracks, the generation we are a part of.
The Audi R8 V10 memory stick, is a USB thumb drive in the shape of the flagship sportscar from Ingolstadt. It's just a fraction of the size of the real car (1:72 scale) and can accommodate only 4 gigs of data in it. Available across all Audi dealerships in the country at Rs. 3,299, this red coloured pen drive won't obviously be used for just transferring office files to your home laptop and such petty work, because this is so much more special. And trust us, you'll have a very child-like grin on your face when you plug it in because the headlamps of this minuscule Audi R8 light up on doing so.
Time to buy one!
