Amazingly Cool Silver Arrows Facebook Covers
The Silver Arrows (Silberpfeil) were the legendary Mercedes-Benz and Auto Union Grand Prix racers of the 1930s supposedly named by the press for their German national racing color. They established the primacy of German race cars by achieving speeds (over 300 km/h in race trim, higher in land speed trim) and outputs not matched until much later.
Unfortunately, only a bit of material is preserved from the original 1934-1939 races,but extensive research was conducted over all of the film, photos, and documents that were discovered. Orchestrated by Jan Rambousek and Tomáš Kopečny, large format prints provide detail that could never have been captured with the photographic technology of the time.
