“Auto Union GP” – a photographic portrait of the Auto Union race cars

The legendary Auto Union Silver Arrows dominated the major races of the 1930s, winning 32 of 54 races up to the end of 1937. The battles fought out between the Auto Union race cars and the Mercedes single-seaters are unforgotten. Names such as Hans Stuck, Bernd Rosemeyer and Tazio Nuvolari are inseparably linked with the Auto Union Silver Arrows. The famous photographer Peter Vann has now paid tribute to these impressive racers in his fascinating illustrative book “Auto Union GP. Race and Record Cars”. Due to be published in October, his book illustrates the restoration of these unique vehicles and the exciting search for clues to the whereabouts of those race cars that had been lost without trace. Elaborate photo stories show the timeless beauty of the Silver Arrows with the four rings. A historical outline with plenty of background information, plus details about the technology and design of these legendary race cars round off this photographic volume.
