    I'd beg to differ, its more like 1% art and 99% engineering amrvel. The other lost 99% art is just a byproduct of the amazing engineering.

    It also was a racecar, so it's not entirely 100% art <A BORDER="0" HREF="http://www.supercars.net/emoticons.html"><IMG BORDER="0" SRC="http://speed.supercars.net/cboardhtml/emoticons/smile.gif"></A>

    a beautiful piece of automotive art...right up there with the Delahaye's and Delage's...I am wondering something however...this racer came about in 1939, just as Germany invaded Poland, and WWII broke out...I am wondering if Germany at the time used racing or this racecar as a propaganda tool? I could be way off, but I was wondering about that was I was looking at this...very beautiful and very fast for it's day..
