Mercedes W154, 1938 racing car. Photographed at the Nurburgring, September 2008. Very impressive demonstration laps and the most awesome din – imagine two angry giants tearing up sheets of calico and you’ll get a good idea of the racket. Nikon D300.

Gday Marc…yeah the silver arrow.Herr Neuberrs baby.my dad had a test album from after the war when the brought out a ‘37 and ’38 to barandshatch. the sound as the driver flogged em past the microphones situated around the track was awe inspiring. the commentator called the ’the pre war giants’ and ‘bellowing blasts of sound’..fantastic to me as a kid. we used to put it up full revs on the stereo…you’d hear it down the street easily. nice one mate …Mudman
