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

This is as long as I could manage recording before the physical pain in my
ears got too much!
He never quite gets it going on song but it still sounds phenomenal. You
feel this noise as much as hear it.

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.
75 Years Silver Arrow
Since 75 years, the terms Mercedes-Benz and „Silver Arrow are inseparably
connected to each other. The era of the Silver Arrow started 1934 with the

anniversary for 75 years Silver Arrow, an imposing parade with these
historical vehicles took place. On the test racing track in Stuttgart,

history again with the original racing cars. Lewis Hamilton drove the
freshly restored W25, which hadnt been in use since 30 years. Before the
driving demonstration, Lewis Hamilton was present for the insertion of his
Vodafone McLaren Mercedes MP4-23 into the Mercedes-Benz Museum the vehicle
with which he von the champion title in 2008. This car is now part of the
worlds biggest Silver arrow collection.
