1:87 scale cars are tiny. Matcbox/Hotwheels cars are larger in comparison, though in scale detail still goes to the 1:87 since that’s also the same scale as HO model trains. One of our favorite manufacturers is Herpa, the German manufacturer of many things tiny and also an official supplier to the Audi Collection.

One of our favorite car-focused T-shirt sites BlipShift has revealed a new Audi-themed design. Playing on the fact that the Audi R10 TDI changed a few things when it arrived on the racing scene with its diesel engine, the shirt’s designer played on the oil-burner stigma. “Dr. Ullrich’s World Famous Tractor Races” suggests something that the state-of-the-art R10 TDIs couldn’t have been further from.
