Video: This V16 Auto Union sounds absolutely savage

Grand Prix racing before Formula 1, before the Second World War, was absolutely mental. The speeds were unbelievable, the power was off the charts, the machinery was otherworldly. Or at least, that was all true for the cars that came from Germany, that were funded as an exercise in propaganda by the ruling Nazi party of the time.
