Auto Union Grand Prix racing car Type C, 1936 V16 Start up and Revs
I have seen lots of exclusive cars at Spa Francorchamps... But this must be one of the most rare cars I have ever seen in action at Spa. The Type C represented the pinnacle in the development of racing car that had been designed by Ferdinand Porsche and which ran its first race in 1934 according to the 750 kg formula (max. mass, dry, without wheels and tyres). The key design feature was the 16-cylinder engine positioned directly behind the driver (mid-mounted engine). It was the most successful German racing car, winning three of the five Grand Prix races, half of the circuit races and all the hill-climbs that Auto Union entered. Engine: 16-cylinder in V arrangement, with Roots Supercharger Displacement: 6,005 cc Power: 520 hp at 5,000 rpm Maximum speed: 340 km/h Series: 1936-937 Source:http://www.audi.com/corporate/en/company/history/models/auto-union-g rand-prix-racing-car-type-c-1936.html This is a replica car. But what a look and what a SOUND!





Silver Arrows Warm up
1938 Mercedes Benz W154 and 1937 Mercedes Benz W125 of the Silver Arrows Collection, warming up at the 2012 Goodwood Revival. Both run on methanol based fuel, making the Exhaust appear smokey but the fumes are mostly water vapour. Irritating to the eyes, and very very LOUD!!
