The Miller car does bear a remarkable resemblance to a Mercedes rear engine sports car from the thirties.

As this car debuted in March 1934, long after the Miller drawings were made, this is no more than a remarkable coincidence or great engineers drawing similar conclusions from the same data.

Unless you believe in thought transference or telepathy. Miller himself said he didn't know where is ideas came from.......

I was wrong. A little research revealed the Miller-Hibbard car came AFTER the Ford race car. So they very well may have heard of the Auto Union and Mercedes cars.
