LEGO Ideas Project Creation Auto Union Type C Racecar Description
This is replica of the Auto Union Type C racecar from 1936, in its hill climbing races configuration. I have always been fascinated by this automobile, which was mixing aerodynamic bodywork with powerful underpinnings, like an airplane without wings.
The vehicle had a 16-cylinder 6-liter engine (with an output of 520 HP) in a central position, a chassis made of two strong tubular beams, with front independent suspensions and semi-independent rear suspensions. Twin rear wheels were used on hill climb races to increase traction, since wide tires were not available at that time…
The 1:8 scale model is 50cm long, and all body panels are removable to admire the technical components. It could be a great set for car and technology enthusiasts.
