$322.20

On June 14th, 1936 Bernd Rosemeyer competed for Auto Union in the famous 228 km (142 mile) Eifel race at Nürburgring, commanding a Type C with starting #18. Mercedes-Benz, Alfa Romeo, and Auto Union competed for the lead in this race, with Rosemeyer eventually becoming the clear front runner in the last third of the race. A heavy fog settled in and visibility less than 20 meters (22 yards). To everyone's amazement, Rosemeyer fearlessly kept going at full speed ahead relying on his route memory, and his unwavering competitive spirit to win, and that he did. What a legend! Bernd Rosemeyer is remembered in racing history as the “Fog Master.”

The trophy-hungry CMC 1936 Auto Union Type C, #18 is a model of extraordinary precision that celebrates Rosenmeyer's unbelievable audacity to persevere against all odds and Auto Union's succession to the championship, putting an end to Mercedes-Benz dominance. Limited edition of 1,500.
