Last month, we showed you a Dodge Charger-inspired desktop computer for all you car nuts out there. Now, we just found a suitable complement to that CPU.

Specialized hard drive maker Flash Rods has created an external hard drive disk in the form of, wait for it, a 1:18 scale model of an Audi R8.

What better way to show to the world how much of a car enthusiast you are with these two car-inspired computer hardwares. The Audi R8 hard drive, which will be available beginning on the 1st of November, comes in three disk spaces, including a 250GB, a 500GB, and a 640GB. A number of colors are also available so you can choose what color of the R8 best suits your taste and personality.

While we already know when the R8 hard drive will drop on store shelves, we still don’t know how much it costs. But if we can look as previous models as precedents – Flash Rods already has a Dodge Challenger and a Nissan GT-R hard drive – then the 250GB version should cost somewhere around the neighbourhood of $200.

I hope they’ll release a 1TB version for this and some more good models smiley

Agree, it’s interesting right. I hope it’s speed is just like the speed of a real R8.

It’s kinda cool to have an external hard disk like that especially the R8 design. But the price range of this cars are tripled for a 250GB. Anyways saving money on this recession is badly needed so I guess I will sacrifice my cravings on this data storage.
