Auto Union Type C | 1936 | #18
CMC once announced its plan to introduce a 1:12 scale replica of the Auto Union Type C with starting number 5. Additional research, however led CMC to discover its counterpart - Auto Union Type C with starting number 18.
Since archival information on the latter was more copious and reliable, CMC and Audi Tradition decided that it was sensible to switch and replicate the # 18 Auto Union Type C.
The famous Eifel race kicked off at the Nürburgring on June 14, 1936. A heavy fog, however, descended to turn this event into a most unforgettable “race in the fog”. After the 8th round, undaunted, Bernd Rosemeyer kept going full speed ahead in his #18 Auto Union Type C, which resulted in a phenomenal victory for Rosemeyer - the signature victory in a career full of them.
