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

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. Der Spritverbrauch lag im Rennen zwischen 120 bis und 145 Liter pro 100 Kilometer, das benötigte Tankvolumen von 400 Liter wurde in einem Satteltank vor dem Cockpit und einem Hecktank aufgeteilt. Von 16 Rennen gewann der W154 in den Jahren 1938/39 elf.

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.
