1936 Auto Union

1936 Auto Union

One of the strangest looking Grand prix cars ever… but an amazing piece of engineering. The engine was a 6 litre V16 and made 520 bhp. For the full appreciation of it’s “strangeness”, one must really see it from the side; the driver is shoved forward into the blunt nose and the V16 fills the back end of the car.
