Silver Arrows at the 2012 Goodwood Revival – Auto Union Type D and Type D Dual Compressor, 1939
The Type D Dual Compressor was the last of the Silver Arrows. It came on to the racing scene midway through the 1939 season of the Belgian Grand Prix. The original Type D had a 12-cylinder engine that produced 420 hp, and gained an extra 65 hp with the introduction of the dual-compressor. Modifications to the body were also made after the engine received the dual-compressor boost. The replica, manufactured by Audi, was driven by Nick Mason, drummer of Pink Floyd, at the 2012 Goodwood Revival.
