Video - Auto Union Type C engine being warmed up at Goodwood Revival

Happily I was standing in front of one of the Karrasik model Auto Union Type Cs when it was started up.

All of the cars were warmed up for a few minutes before going on the track in order to get everything up to temperature before the demonstration run.  These are the specs for the Type C - and don't forget, this car was made in 1934!

Single camshaft
2 x Roots superchargers
