That's some crazy HP for a car that old.

  1. Look how small it is. Throw some fat tires on that, and it'll roast!

    hey it only has a 3L size engein with 12 pistons, that is tiny! look at the back, it has 4 wheel on the back axle.

    Probably to put all that power on the road without burning too much rubber.
     
  4. Re: That's some crazy HP for a car that old.

    Shit, it goes 192mph.

    Because it is old does not mean that it is slow, i dont know where you got that mentality from, just look at what is currently on the top of the top speed list, the racers back in these days were extremely fast

  8. Auto Union race cars from the 30's went as fast as 250mph.
     
  9. wow 192mph in the 30s lol thats faster then a lot of cars today
     
  10. Everything about this car is impressive. As old as it is and cranks out that much power and does that high of a speed. Sure, Mercedes-Benz beat Auto Union in top speed back then, but the overall specs... I find myself drooling thinking of it all.
     
  11. must have been scary to drive, though
     
  12. it's impressive, but keep in mind that it's a racecar.
     
  13. 10,000 rmp on a v12? My god I want to hear this thing.
