From the Manufacturer
A 1:18 scale precision model of the revolutionary Auto Union Type C, driven by Bernd Rosemeyer. The Type C used a new innovative design. The 520 hp V-16 engine was mounted behind the driver and ahead of the rear axle. Although this is a normal race car practice today, it was ground-breaking in 1936. Top speed: 340 km/h (211 mph). The Auto Union Type C is hand-assembled from 1026 parts into an extraordinary detail-exact model. The single parts are of high-quality materials: 23 parts of zinc alloy, 754 of metal or copper, and 153 of plastic. The remaining 96 parts are screws, rivets or simulated heads. This award-winning model (Model Fan Model of the Year 2003, 2004 Super-Model of the Year) is the exact replica that was developed by Ferdinand Porsche who wrote racing history like no other racing car had done before: In 1936 Auto Union presented with the Type C a monoposto which was almost totally different from all the other racing cars known so far. What stood out especially was the unconventional design of the sensational 16-cylinder. V-engine installed behind the driver and in front of the rear axle, an innovation which soon became the accepted thing. This high-performance racing car was above all so successful because the bullet with 520 hp was driven by a highly talented racing driver: Bernd Rosemeyer. 1936 was his most successful year when he became European Champion and won numerous Grand Prix. In 1937 the new ace of the Auto Union could keep his main competitor, Mercedes-Benz, in check as well and was able to continue his successful career with five further wins. At the beginning of 1938, however, his career came to an abrupt and tragically ended by a fatal accident which occurred while trying to break the world speed record. After the end of the Second World War, the remaining racing cars in Zwickau had to be handed over as reparation payment to the Soviet Union. Till now it`s not comprehensible, what exactly happened to the racing cars after that day.
