Auto Union Super Coupe

In the early 30's, Ferdy Porsche designed one of my favorite racing cars, the Auto Union "C" type GP. Mid-engined,45 degree, supercharged V 16. The design was refined over a ten year period resulting in an impressive win record for the corporate giant. F. Porsche dreamt of building this Super Coupe,with a swoopy body plonked right down on the GP chassis. What a machine it would have been but, Auto Unions racing sponsor , the Nazis decided to fuck up the world by starting WWII. The Auto Union Super Coupe never got off the drawing board. Damn those Nazi bastards!
