Limited edition of 5.000 pcs
Built of more than 1,000 parts and known as Hillclimber, this Auto Union Type C features twin wheels on a live axle. One of its most outstanding drivers was Hans Stuck, the famous “King of the Mountains”, who fell in love with the powerful edge provided by the car.
Back in the 1930s, Auto Union entered not only in Grand Prix circuit races but also in the very popular hillclimb events. 1936 saw Auto Union Type C equipped with twin wheels on a live axle for the first time. This innovation proved to be a great blessing for Auto Union, as it enabled a huge torque of the 16-cylinder V-engine on the road. The most outstanding driver in hillclimb races was undoubtedly Hans Stuck. His driving skills in this special type of race were virtually unparalleled, which rightly earned him the nickname “King of the Mountains”. He won his last titele as German Hillclimb Master 1960 at the age of 60 years. There was also Bernd Rosemeyer, the Auto Union ace of the Grand-Prix races, who was able to win the 1936 German Hillclimb Championship at first go.
