Tucked away to the side of the Audi booth at the 2007 Geneva auto show is the ultimate kids' toy, a scaled down replica of the Auto Union Type C. The car is powered by a chain drive and has a seven-speed internal gear hub with a coaster brake. It uses alloy body panels and frame, plus an oak instrument panel. We thought maybe, just maybe, we could fit in it, until we read the fine print that says the car is suitable for children no more than 135 centimeters in height. That's just under 4.5 feet.
