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.

Bugatti Type 35 B - Very loud start up!! 1 of 45 ever build!! 1080p HD
I recorded this beautiful blue Bugatti Type 35 B during Concours d'Elegance Antwerp. It was the most successful of the Bugatti racing models. The Type 35B featured a roots type Supercharger. The final version of the Type 35 series was the Type 35B of 1927. Originally named Type 35TC, it shared the 2.3 L engine of the Type 35T but added a large Supercharger like the Type 35C. Output is 175 hp (126 kW) with upgraded compressor and 45 examples were made. A Type 35B won the 1929 French Grand Prix. Thanks for watching and feel free to leave a comment behind. /Hans

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
