Silver Arrows at the 2012 Goodwood Revival – Auto Union Type C, 1936
Bernd Rosermeyer’s ascension to world champion came in the seat of the Auto Union Type C, as this car reigned from 1936 to 1938, winning six races. The third design of Ferdinand Porsche’s Auto Union Silver Arrows maximized weight to power ratio, as the engine grew in this model but the chassis and body shrunk. The size changes and weight distribution made the Type C extremely difficult to maneuver; very few drivers could decipher its nuances to maximize on its capabilities.
