    1. AutoBild's Most Childish Comparison: Auto Union Silver Arrow vs. Rat Rod

      With a mad scramble this week to rapidly deploy our new vBulletin forum software I neglected to upload these shots earlier in the week. As most know, the new Audi R8 GT revealed last week was shown at the Grand Prix de Monaco Historique over the weekend. Tom Kristensen was on hand, presumably to drive the GT, while iconic drivers Hans Stuck and Jacky Ickx ...
