Variex Regular costs just $39.00 at the Emigre site: http://www.emigre.com/fontpage.php?PVarR.html
That's a pretty reasonable price. If you're doing a freelance job, that cost could easily be passed on to the customer.

it's not the same font, nor can it be considered a replica, but there's a free font called Catharsis Cargo that has some similarities. http://www.dafont.com/catharsis-cargo.font
