    Following information courtesy of the CMC:

    On June 14th 1936, Auto Union sent its best driver Bernd Rosemeyer to compete in the famous Eifel race at the Nürburgring, driving an Auto Union Type C with starting #18. This event became one of the most memorable fog-races at the Nürburgring. It consisted of 10 laps for a total distance of 228 km. The race was dominated by three prominent drivers of the time from the very beginning. Leading the way was Rudolf Caracciola in a Mercedes W25, next came the veteran warrior Tazio Nuvolari in an Alfa Romeo P3, and behind him was Bernd Rosemeyer in a Type C. After the 3rd round Nuvolari surpassed Caracciola to take the lead. But Rosemeyer was catching up steadily. Following a shock absorber failure that forced Caracciola to retire, a thrilling duel for victory unfolded between Nuvolari and the daredevil Rosemeyer.

    True to his nickname, Rosemeyer endeavored to become the undisputed front-runner by the 7th round.  At a significant distance behind him was Nuvolari, running in the 2nd place. During the 8th round, however, something unforeseen happened. With the sudden descent of a heavy fog, the Nürburgring was enveloped in an impenetrable wall of mist. Visibility was reduced to less than 20 meters! And what did Rosemeyer do? This crazy guy kept going full speed ahead. With a seriously blurred vision, he had to rely on his route memory of the course, a 7th sense for orientation, and an undaunted spirit to win the race. A legend was born.

    Bernd Rosemeyer went down in racing history as the “Fog Master.” Auto Union was setting a new benchmark that put an end to the dominance of Mercedes Benz.

    • Item number #BOS202

    The Mercedes-Benz T80 was a six-wheeled vehicle, developed and designed by Ferdinand Porsche. It was intended to break the world land speed record, but never got the chance due to the outbreak of World War II. The target speed for the T80 at the beginning of production was 600 km/h, but when the project was finished it was set to an ambitious speed of 750km/h. Hitler considered the T80 a propaganda triumph of German technology, being an avid race car fan himself. The engine used in the T80 was a massive 44.5 litre Daimler-Benz DB 603, a derivate of the famous DB-601 aircraft engine. The car was over 8 metres long, with three axles, an produced 3,000 hp. Aerodynamically, the T80 incorporated a Porsche-designed enclosed cockpit, low sloping hood, rounded wheel enclosures, and elongated tail booms. Midway down the body were two small wings to provide down force and ensure stability – these wings were inspired by the wings of Opel's famous rocket cars from 1928. The date was set for the car to complete the record in “RekordWoche “(Record Week), January 1940, but the war begun on September 1, 1939 and prevented the T80 to run the great feat due to the fact that its huge V12 engine was taken out and used in an air bomber during the war. The car is currently on display at the Mercedes-Benz Museum in Stuttgart.

    • Item number #BOS203

    Following an impressive 1938 Grand Prix season, some engine and aerodynamic modifications to the W154 were planned for the 1939 season, but before the season got underway, Mercedes-Benz decided to use the W154 to make attempts on the Class D (2.001–3.000L/122–183cu in) standing start speed record. Chassis number 11 of the 15 W154s built was modified by enclosing the wheels and suspension in aerodynamic fairings. The sides of the cockpit were also enclosed by panels; the one on the right side was easily removed for entry into the cockpit. Further streamlining improvements were made to the rest of the body, and unneeded equipment was removed to make the car as light as possible. Since the record runs were brief, the radiator was removed, and an ice tank was installed above the rear axle. Hot coolant from the engine flowed into the tank and melted the ice, and the now-chilled coolant flowed back to the engine. With the radiator removed, an inlet in the nose of the car fed air directly to the engine’s carburettor. The streamlined W154 record car’s engine developed 468 hp (349 kW) at 7,800 rpm. On the 8th of February 1939, Caracciola climbed into the streamlined W154 car as it sat on a special section of the Autobahn south of Dessau, Germany. From a stop, Caracciola and the W154 rocketed down the Autobahn, covering 1 km (.6 mi) in 20.56 seconds and 1 mile (1.6 km) in 28.32 seconds—both times were new Class D records. Unfortunately, the top speed achieved was not recorded, but the times averaged to 108.800 mph (175.097 km/h) over 1 km (.6 mi) and 127.119 mph (204.578 km/h) over 1 mile (1.6 km).
