Hitler was determined to dominate the world with his machines. He funded the racing efforts of Mercedes-Benz and Auto Union (Audi) and encouraged them to create the most powerful and futuristic autos ever produced. These aerodynamic Grand Prix racers were designed to rule the racing world. To many, it is the golden age of Grand Prix racing but to some it was an ominous foreshadowing of how Germany would attempt to conquer the world with its machines. But the arrogant German racing effort would get its comeuppance from an Italian driver, Tazio Nuvolari, who beat them on their home turf in a "down-to-the-wire" race to the finish at the German Grand Prix. It was proof that the German juggernaut wasn’t invincible. But these cars remain awe inspiring today. EP 201
Well, they're back - about the domination of the german silver arrows - new formula, 2.5 litre NA - MB return and in 54 and 55 (with a few exceptions) totally trash the field, just like in the good old days of the 1930s after the death of Auto Union's Bernd Rosemeyer - they introduce mechanical direct injection, windtunnel streamlined bodies; and where planning to use 4WD system witch allowed front wheel auto-gearing to a form of mechanical traction control - launch control - for those not driving a silver car it's quite hopeless
