Roots supercharged v16... 366 cubic inches... made about 500hp.

They didn't really have "f1" in the thirties... That is what you would call a grand prix car. Competed against Maseratis, Mercs, etc...

Hey guys-
Supercharged v-12's and v-16's in the 30's? That's Hitler's engine testbed right there. Now you know where the Stuka and Messerschmidt got their engines....
Auto Union was a conglomerate created by the socialist goverment of Germany out of the four major auto manufacturers at the time. You'll recognize its logo as the four interlocking rings on Audis.

Sort of, but not really... Hitler wasn't a big fan of the auto union and by the time the war came around he had already decided that he would be using Auto Union's competitor to power his Messerschmitts... They all ran the Daimler-Benz DB 605.
