Silver Arrows In Camera: A photographic history of the Mercedes-Benz and Auto Union Racing Teams
The battle in Grand Prix racing between the German Mercedes-Benz and Auto Union teams during the six years from 1934 through 1939 was probably the greatest, most spectacular and most important era in motor racing history. The two German teams almost completely dominated Grand Prix racing, mainly because of their technical superiority. This superiority was made possible by the vast sums that the two teams could expend on racing. The money paid to them by the German government was not a direct subsidy, but represented the generous margin above cost incorporated in government contracts. In effect, while Mercedes-Benz developed and manufactured aero engines for the Luftwaffe, the Auto Union Group manufactured tanks and other armored vehicles for the Wehrmacht.

“Tell me its pedigree and I’ll tell you what kind of car it is!” According to legend, this pungent comment was made by the great Tazio Nuvolari when a manufacturer asked him to drive a new car in the German Grand Prix.West Germany’s Auto Union products—the front-wheel-drive DKW 750 and the larger Auto Union S-1000 series—are direct descendants of the famous Auto Union racing cars that Nuvolari was later to drive to victory in the British and German Grand Prix races, and which literally cleaned up on the racing tracks of Europe before World War II ended peaceful competition be¬tween great automobile marques. These were the cars that would do 205 mph, weighed a mere 2,508 pounds, and were constructed with what one writer describes as an “unearthly kind of superior craftsmanship ...” (1961 - Keith Ayling)

CMC-Classic Model Cars, USA Cmc Auto Union Type C, 1936 Nurburgring, 18 Rosemeyer Diecast Model
On June 14th 1936, Auto Union sent its best driver Bernd Rosemeyer to compete in the famous Eifel race at the Nürburgring, piloting an Auto Union Type C with starting #18. This event became one of the most memorable fog-races at the Nürburgring. True to his nickname, Rosemeyer became an undisputed front-runner late in the race. At a significant distance behind him was Nuvolari, running in the 2nd place. During the 8th round, however, something unforeseen happened. With the sudden Descent of a heavy fog, the Nürburgring was enveloped in an impenetrable wall of mist. Visibility was reduced to less than 20 meters! and what did Rosemeyer do? this crazy guy kept going full speed ahead. With a seriously blurred vision, he had to rely on his route memory of the course, a 7th sense for orientation, and an undaunted spirit to win the race. A legend was born. Bernd Rosemeyer went down in racing history as the “fog master.” Auto Union was setting a new benchmark that put an end to the dominance of Mercedes Benz.
