// - POLARISING - // This my friends is the genesis of the Audi TT / R8 / Veyron. Meet Project Rosemeyer, named for Bernd Rosemeyer, one of the superstar drivers of Audi’s early racing years under the Auto Union banner did eventually evolve into the production R8 supercar. Although we don’t suggest the R8’s styling be changed. Road & Track voted it one of the most beautiful cars of 2009. There’s something to the steam-punk aggression of the Rosemeyer that just shouldn’t have been cast aside.

More of a homage to the racing cars of the 1930s than the ultramodern shape now adorning the R8, the Rosemeyer was powered by a 16-cylinder engine, although it used a W layout rather than the V of the old Auto Unions. Like we said, we wouldn’t wish change on the R8, but maybe Audi could introduce an armored model that looks like this.

Autotehtaiden vÀlinen kilpailu oli kovaa jo 1930-luvulla. Vuonna 1937 Bernd Rosemeyer ajoi Auto Union Typ C Streamlinerilla ensimmÀisenÀ ihmisenÀ yli 400km/h (406km/h) yleisellÀ tiellÀ. Seuraavana vuonna Rudolf Caracciola ajoi MB:n W125 Rekordwagenilla uuden ennÀtyksen 432km/h ja Bernd lÀhti tavoittelemaan sen rikkomista samana pÀivÀnÀ. PÀÀstyÀÀn lÀhelle tÀtÀ nopeutta (430km/h toisella yrityksellÀ), kolmannella yrityksellÀÀn hÀn menetti autonsa hallinnan sivutuulen vuoksi ja menehtyi ulosajon seurauksena. Tuohon aikaan turvavarusteina kuljettajilla oli ajolasit ja nahkakypÀrÀ. Rudolf Caracciolan vuonna 1938 ajama nopeusennÀtys 432km/h yleisellÀ tiellÀ on tÀnÀ pÀivÀnÀ edelleen voimassa. #autounion #typc #streamliner #BerndRosemeyer #RudolfCaracciola #autobahn #speedrecord #publicroad #mercedesbenz #w125rekordwagen

Auto-Union P-Wagen 1933-1937
The Auto Union Grand Prix racing cars types A to D were developed and built by a specialist racing department of Auto Union's Horch works in Zwickau, Germany, between 1933 and 1939.

Having been made redundant from Steyr Automobile, Dr. Ferdinand Porsche founded Porsche in Stuttgart, with engineering colleagues including Karl Rabe, and financial backing from Adolf Rosenberger. Unfortunately, car commissions were low in the depressed economic climate, so Porsche founded the subsidiary company Hochleistungsfahrzeugbau GmbH (HFB) (High Performance Car Ltd.) in 1932 to develop a racing car, for which he had no customer.[1]

What would happened if...?
the war wouldn't have ended the racing projects of Auto Union & Mercedes-Benz?
Mercedes-Benz was one of the first car manufacturers of the world. Since the 1910s they're driving very successful in motorsports.
In 1932 another German car brand was founded: Auto Union, a association of several brands.
Auto Union & Mercedes-Benz dominated the next years of car racing. Only Alfa Romeo was a rival.
In 1939 WW2 began, all racing activities were stopped. German racing drivers Rudolf Hasse, Ernst GĂŒnther Burgaller & Uli Bigalke didn’t survived the war. Also a few French, British and Italian drivers died, some of them as resistance fighters. Some of them, like Richard Seaman, Ernst von Delius & Bernd Rosemeyer died before the was has started.
Some survivors tried themselves in f1 after the war. Paul Pietsch, Hans Stuck, Herrmann Lang or Luigi Fagioli with less success. But Stuck & HP MĂŒller were successful on hillclimb & motorcycle.
Rudolf "Carratsch" Caracciola retired in 1952 after a huge sportscar crash. He died in 1959.
Tazio Nuvolari was too ill to drive f1. He died in 1953 after some sportscar races.
Lang was dependent by medicines for war injuries.
A new era of drivers like Fangio, Karl Kling, Hans Herrmann has started. A mix of old pre war driver & young ones who survived the war or didn't came into the army.
It's hard to imagine what would have been without the war. The Nazis supported German motorracing as well. And they played a big role in the beginning of the war. Without the Nazis no war, but maybe also no great German racing.
Mercedes-Benz had a new & successful racing programme between 1952 & 1955 again with race director Alfred Neubauer. They came back in the 1980s.
Auto Union still build some road cars, now as DKW. A lot of little racing car manufacturers started, one of them was Porsche. Imagine they would be replaced by Auto Union.
