Furious 7 Car Show & DC Premiere: One Last Ride
The Fast and Furious movie series is leaving us with one last ride through
the well-sequenced and high-flying (literally) Furious 7 sequel. Automotive
Rhythms turned the Regal Majestic Stadium 20 & Imax in downtown Silver
Spring, Maryland into an epicenter of energetic rides and die-hard
franchise fans. Patrons were able to view some of the magnificent vehicles
from the movie such as the Dodge Hellcat, Nissan GTR aka Godzilla, Audi R8,
an Aston Martin, Lamborghinis and a Ferarri 458. But wait, it doesn’t
stop there because also on hand were BMW M3s, a Nissan 370Z Nismo and two
of the baddest custom Kawasaki Ninja ZX 14s on the streets.

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
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.
