2025 Auto Union Type E

2025 Auto Union Type E

I have no clue why automotive enthusiasts haven’t taken some of the styling inspiration from the great gran prix racecars and created modern monoposto weekend fun toys. (exception being Gordon Murray with his “Rocket Car” / Yamaha project twentyfive plus years ago)

For this project (I envisioned for a friend): Audi V8 engine bolted to a Porsche Boxster gearbox intermixed with a tubular chassis, bitsa suspension and fiberglass bodywork. (ie: something he could build himself within his skillset)

There are additions ala mirrors, lights, fenders and more but not shown here.

If interest, I can post more variants I have created based upon Ferrari, Lotus, Bugatti, Maserati, Lancia, Alfa and other gran prix racecars. Admittedly a few will like these — and undoubtedly the idea will also highly offend others. So be it. Dare to be different…
