Racing the Silver Arrows of Zwickeau
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

2011 Mercedes-Benz Silver Arrow Concept
For the 2011 Los Angeles Design Challenge, which was seeking to find the most spectacular new film car for Hollywood, the designers from the Mercedes-Benz Advanced Design Studios in Sindelfingen (Germany) and Carlsbad (USA), have joined the ranks of the screen-writers. The designers at the Mercedes-Benz Advanced Design Studio in Carlsbad, California have created a Hollywood-style homage for Mercedes-Benz to 125 years of innovation in automotive technology and design. The leading roles are played by two high-tech characters which have been instrumental in reconciling safety and stylish design in automobiles: the Mercedes-Benz Silver Arrow cult racing car and crash test dummies. The film "Silver Lightning" is set in the near future, in an age of artificial intelligence. Two crash test dummies by the names of Hans05 and Franz02 take on evil ruler Dr. Crash-Barrier to save their beloved Mercedes Silver Arrow. They engage in an action-packed, nerve-jangling duel with the ruthless battering ram before finally outfoxing him. The Mercedes-Benz Silver Arrow Concept is a low-lying sculpture on wheels. A feat of technical innovation is the diagonal, hubless roller which allows steering in all directions. The futuristic Silver Arrow's proportions are reminiscent of the legendary sports car from the late 1930s and the Uhlenhaut SLR from the 1950s.
