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





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.

Sleek, aerodynamic racecars driven by daring young men captivated the world of motorsports in the 1930's. At the top of the heap were the cars of Auto Union and Mercedes-Benz. Their futuristic machines dominated the tracks of Europe and transformed what the world thought a racer should be. Unfortunately, their exploits were pushed off the stage by World War Two. We are now just rediscovering the stories of the legendary cars called the Silver Arrows. This film produced by Audi in 1992 takes a look at the cars and drivers of Auto Union. Their most famous driver, Bernd Rosemeyer had been a motorcycle racer for the DKW team, which was part of Auto Union. His natural talent was spotted as he effortlessly won races. They decided to give him a test drive. He was absolutely brilliant. SA5

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.

Von 16 Rennen gewann der W154 in den Jahren 1938/39 elf.
