1936 and 1937 were particularly successful years for Auto Union and a clash of the titans: Mercedes-Benz vs. Auto Union. The famous hill climb at Schauinsland Mountain in Germany was held on August 1st, 1937 and brought upwards of 20,000 spectators who had their eye on the two top racing teams: Auto Union with Hans Stuck and Bernd Rosemeyer and Mercedes-Benz with Rudolf Caracciola, Manfred v. Brauchitsch and Hermann Lang. On this especially steep, winding, and treacherous track, engine power was not enough; superior handling with masterful cornering technique was absolutely essential. With all eyes on these notable contestants, Auto Union took the lead, Hans Stuck steering his Auto Union Type C #11 with twin-tire rear wheels to a sensational victory just one second ahead of his team-mate Bernd Rosemeyer.

The trophy-hungry CMC Auto Union Type C 1937 German Hillclimb, #111 Stuck is a model of extraordinary precision that celebrates Hans Stuck victory and Auto Union's overthrow of Mercedes-Benz dominance. Limited edition of 1,500.
