Home again: the last Auto Union Type D twin-supercharger Silver Arrow returns to Audi
- Audi Tradition buys back the second “Karassik restoration” car
- Auto Union Type D built in 1939, then lost in the USSR for many years
- Thomas Frank, Head of Audi Tradition: “One of the most emotional moments in our heritage work for AUDI AG”
“This is one of the most emotional moments in our heritage work for AUDI AG – we have come full circle,” says Thomas Frank, Head of Audi Tradition. A few weeks ago, the car manufacturer was able to repurchase an extremely rare Auto Union Silver Arrow racing car – consisting largely of original parts. It is the Auto Union twin-supercharger Type D dating from 1939, and is one of the two legendary “Karassik cars”. AUDI AG now owns three of the five Auto Union racing cars that can claim to be original.
