1935→1935 Auto Union Typ B

Mercedes-Benz still dominated in Grand Prix 1935, but the Auto Union Typ B still won the Italian GP and the Czech GP at Brno. The car was a direct evolution of the Typ A released just a year before. Major changes included larger and longer chassis tubes, a single fuel tank and a high compression engine.
