Mercedes-Benz and Auto Union racers from the 1930s took to the track for
the first time at the Goodwood Revival between 14 and 16 September, some 75
years after the Silver Arrows first appeared in the UK.
All the Mercedes-Benz Silver Arrows that appeared at the Goodwood Revival
are original cars -- each with extensive racing history behind them. They
were driven by ex-DTM driver Roland Asch, Le Mans winner Jochen Mass,
five-times DTM champion Bernd Schneider, three-time Formula One World
Champion Sir Jackie Stewart and his son, ex-F3000 racer and team manager
Among the cars that appeared were the W 25 (1934), the W 125 (1937), a W
154 (1939) and a W 165 (1939). Power outputs range from the 254 hp of the
1.5-litre V8 W 165 to the 600 hp achieved by the mighty W 125. All were by
far the most advanced machines of their kind with innovative suspension and
drivetrains meaning they were highly successful and effective racing

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.
