Auto Union played key role in Silver Arrows dominance in the motorsports of the 30`s. Along with Mercedes, their innovative racing cars was subscribed for both podium and titles. It was like there were no other competitors and it was fueled by the talent of legendary pilots as Tazio Nuvolari, Hans Stuck and Bernd Rosemeyer (Auto Union) along with Rudolf Caracciola, Manfred von Brauchitsch and Hermann Lang (Mercedes).

For season `38, Auto Union cut 4 cylinders of their V16 engine in order to make it fill the 3 liter capacity limitation. Their car was good, but the pilots were rather unexperienced. That’s why Auto Union approached Tazio Nuvolari after his ferocious split from the Alfa Romeo team, caused by poor reliability of the racing car. Type D was much more dependable and the Italian won his home Grand Prix at Monza as well as the British GP held at Donington Park. Next season, on September 3rd, 1939, Tazio Nuvolari and his Auto Union won the Belgrade Gran Prix. This was the last Grand Prix competition conducted before the WWII.

Now you can remember the glory days of Auto Union and Tazio Nuvolari by owning this vivid art print, created by Luis Ferrara.
