A hand-built 1/18th scale model by CMC exclusive models of the 1936/37 Auto Union type "C". This is the twin rear wheel hill-climb version. These vehicles, developed by Ferdinand Porsche with a V16 rear mounted supercharged engine, were to say the least difficult to master. This was driven to five victories in 1936 by Bernd Rosemeyer making him the European Champion and several further victories in 1937. Model is complete with box and packaging.
