1938 Auto Union Wanderer Streamlined

Posted: December 27, 2009 in Audi

I don’t know much about this car, except that it was an Auto Union sports racing car raced under the Wanderer name. Auto Union were most successful with their 16 cylinder C-Type Grand Prix racers, as well as the later D-Type, so these cars tend to be overlooked in comparison.

Three cars were built to compete in the 1938 and 1939 Liège-Rome-Liège long distance race. In 1939 they won the teams prize and all cars reached the finish line.

The three cars were rebuilt by Audi in 2003. They again exemplify 1930s streamlining and the art-deco astehtics of that decade.
