Auto Union Race Cars
On sept. 11th 2004 audi came back to their roots. Back to the place of
birth of the legendary Auto Union racecars. To a city called Zwickau.
So i had the chance to film these beautiful cars which were born in the
same city like me. ;)
Enjoy the incredible sound of these monsters.

Auto Union and Mercedes W165 engine starts, LOUD!
Goodwood Festival of Speed FOS 2011, Auto Union Type C & D and Mercedes
W165 engine starts. Awesome sounds, very loud!
Auto Union drivers: Nick Mason and Hans-Joachim Stuck.
Mercedes Silver Arrow W165
Chassis 449547 was the second of the two W165s completed for the 1939
Tripoli Grand Prix. It was considered the slower of the two cars and Lang
was sent out in it with an unfavourable strategy. He nevertheless dominated
the race and if he had wanted, he could have lapped his 'team leader' in
the closing stages. As mentioned the car was only tested and demonstrated
after its debut victory. It remained dormant for over fifty years and is
still only very rarely seen outside of Stuttgart. Celebrating the 75th
anniversary of the 'Silver Arrows,' it is seen here at one of those rare
outings, during the 2009 Retromobile in Paris.
Auto Union Type C
Mercedes-Benz domination in Grand Prix ended with the Auto Union Typ C. It
took a few years to get it right, but Ferdinand Porsche's daring design
with a mid-mounted V16 finally won. It claimed many victories from 1936 to
1938 until the three-liter formula was laid out for 1939.
Horch, Audi, DKW and Wanderer created Auto Union with the help of Ferdinand
Porsche and Adolf Rosenberger. Along with building passenger cars, a goal
of the new company was to enter Grand Prix. They did so in 1934 with a
daring mid-engined race car called the Typ A. This evolved into the
slightly larger Typ B the following year and the Typ C was fitted with a
much larger engine for 1936.
The Type-C was a third evolution of Auto Union's racecar. It primarily
competed with Mercedes-Benz but also raced against Alfa Romeo's 12C-36, the
Maserati V8RI and Bugatti 59/50. Type-Cs won six victories in 1936 and made
Bernt Rosermeyer world champion

Mercedes W154 Warming up Ennstal Jochen Mass
MERCEDES-BENZ W154: Der Höhenstraßen-Sieger
Dieser W154 mit Chassis-Nummer 11 ist jenes Auto, mit dem Rudolf Caracciola
1939 Rekorde fuhr, Hermann Lang auf der Wiener Höhenstraße siegte, und
Juan Manuel Fangio 1951 in Buenos Aires Dritter wurde.
Der 3-Liter V-12 Zylinder mit vier obenliegenden Nockenwellen besaß zwei
Roots-Gebläse mit Stahlrotoren in einem Magnesium-Gehäuse, sie liefen mit
1,5facher Kurbelwellen-Drehzahl und beanspruchten bei 8000 Touren 160 PS
der Höchstleistung. 1939 wurde der W154 modifiziert. Das Trockengewicht
sank von 975 auf 898 kg, mittels Zweistufen-Gebläse wurde die Leistung auf
480 PS getrieben. Der Spritverbrauch lag im Rennen zwischen 120 bis und 145
Liter pro 100 Kilometer, das benötigte Tankvolumen von 400 Liter wurde in
einem Satteltank vor dem Cockpit und einem Hecktank aufgeteilt. Von 16
Rennen gewann der W154 in den Jahren 1938/39 elf.
BRM V16 Engine Sound
The awesome engine sound from the BRM V16. A formula one car that was used

Starting the 1909 Blitzen-Benz, UNEDITED, @ Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance
The Blitzen-Benz was purpose built to do just one thing, to break speed
records (not racing), and it did repeatedly from 1909 through 1911.
(Edited version: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ga2HtUHzUuw )
Its speed of 228.1km/h (141.73mph) on April 23rd, 1911, driven by Bob
Burman at Daytona Beach, stood as a record until 1919. Twice the speed of
the fastest airplane, (12 April, 1911, Alfred Leblanc @
69.442mph/111.801kph in a Blériot Blériot) and even shattering the record
speed of 210km/h set by a locomotive in 1903.
This record was not even officially broken in an airplane until 1920!
Of the six originally built, this is one of only two that exist today, and
is displayed at the Mercedes-Benz Museum in Stuttgart, Germany.
While the extended and nuanced effort required to start the Blitzen-Benz on
a cool coastal morning can try the patience of some viewers, its historical
significance and ground-breaking engineering brilliance still place it
amongst the greatest motor-vehicle achievements of all time, and the dozens
witnessing this effort felt it was one of the highlights of many great
moments at Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance 2011.
Here's a great collection of vintage and modern images of the Blitzen-Benz
and other historic speed record contenders:
displacement 21500 cc / 1312.0 in³
bore 185 mm / 7.28 in
stroke 200 mm / 7.87 in
power 149.1 kw / 200 bhp @ 1600 rpm
specific output 9.3 bhp per litre
bhp/weight 137.93 bhp per tonne

Audi Auto Union 1938 Silver Arrow Race Car in NYC
The 1938 Auto Union Silver Arrow made its run down Park Avenue to the new
Audi Forum. Due to a flooded engine it did not make its run with the new R8
and R10 TDI race car. But it sure sounds great in real life.
