Feel free to also have a look at this great video of a BMW 502 V8 2.6 1963:
I think this DKW Auto Union 1000 s 1959 can be regarded as a supercar in a
way too. A very nice design with a special engine!

Recently we came across this beautiful DKW Auto Union 1000s 1959 at The
Gallery in Brummen, The Netherlands. This classic car dealer is one of the
largest in the world. We took the car for a little spin! We love to hear
your comments on our videos. Feel free to leave one!
The Auto Union 1000 was a compact front-wheel-drive saloon manufactured by
Auto Union AG between 1958 and 1963. It was the first (and in many markets
the last) model branded as an Auto Union by the manufacturer since the
1930s: it replaced the paradoxically named DKW 3=6, although the latter
continued in production, reassuringly now branded as the DKW 900, for
another year. The two cars were broadly similar, but the new car had its
two-stroke engine enlarged to 981 cc yielding a 10% - 37% (according to
model) power increase.
Nürburgring - Hermann Lang
In 1962 Hermann Lang came back to the Nürburgring to drive his Mercedes
W125 Grand Prix car again. The 1937 Mercedes W125 Data: 8-Cylinder In-line
5,660 CC 646 bhp at 5,800 rpm (The most powerfull gp car ever built up
until the late seventies)
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
Auto Union Typ C - Der legendäre Silberpfeil
Der Auto Union Typ C war 1936 das erfolgreichste deutsche Grand Prix
Fahrzeug. Die Rennfahrer Legende Jackie Ickx ist für uns das 520 PS starke
und 750 kg leichte Rennauto gefahren.

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.

same city like me. ;)
