Deutschland Deutschland Uber Alles Collection

Postby reeft1 » Sat Oct 04, 2014 10:26 am

I have to confess, whilst I absolutely admire German engineering, I do find most of their cars somewhat soul less. I am also a bit in the Clarkson camp when it comes to Porsche. However, for reasons I am unable to articulate to myself, there is something about these cars which suggests that on rare occasions, whilst nobody is looking, Fritz the engineer goes a bit off piste and builds something to make you smile.

Great selection. Maisto AMG CLK GTR is a good effort considering how cheap it was when new.

I've seen the first one on the road, but I don't think the driver was pleased to see me as I pretty much stopped right in front of him to stare at the car. :lol:

Nice. I recall Top Gear testing the GT1 as a road car by doing the shopping in it. Bonkers car.

Mercedes 300 SLR - partswork - how can a car this old still look so much better than the new SLR??

Image

Never been a big Beemer fan, however, I do like this! Very DRM/DTM!

BMW 3.0 CSL - Schuco

Image

I make a Beemer exception for Alpinas (a friend had one many years ago and i was blown away by how classy and silky smooth quick it was) and for 635csi's so when you put them together.....

BMW Alpina B7 Turbo Coupe - Spark

Hi reeft1,
I thought you might enjoy seeing this Deutschland Uber Alles racing car display.

The little bit of wall between the two chairs is dedicated to the Silver Arrows which did indeed become Deutschland Uber Alles
from 1934 - 1939.
The display case contains a helix which shows the evolution of the Auto Union and Mercedes Silver Arrows spiraling through time, including the post-war 1954 and 1955 cars driven by Juan Manual Fangio which also became become Deutschland Uber Alles.

Dust cover removed

History books below the display.

The 1st Mercedes and 1st named Silver Arrow after it's silver aluminum body flashed by to a win on it's first race outing.
Silver because it's white (the German national racing color) paint was removed in order to meet the required weight limit.
Image


The 1st Auto Union
Image


Record setting Mercedes
Image


W125 in it's GP guise
Image


"The rest of the story"

Fangio

Cheers and Happy Collecting,
Steve

British roads have history. Some were built by the Romans. British road investment being what it is, they have only been re-surfaced a few times since.

Thank you. Ive always thought the Audi 5 coupe was a good looking car and the Z3/Z4 with the flame edged design looked Zagato esq.
