This shiny, sleek Silberpfiel represents both the romance and dramatic beauty of the most famous Grand Prix racers ever. The wheel hubs and and tires are made with the exact same material as the original. Our Silberpfiel is an authentic replication to Germany’s dominant Mercedes-Benz and Auto Union Grand Prix motor racing cars between 1934 and 1939. With its hand polished aluminum body, faux leather seat, detailed dash and steering wheel it acts as a great staple to any mans home.
In 1934, the international motor sport governing body specified a maximum weight for Grand Prix racing cars of 750 kg. However, this is excluding tires and fuel. So, the Germans decided to reduce weight by removing the lead-based paint which denoted its cars’ traditional white livery. Thus, exposing distinctive shining aluminum and giving it the name Silberpfiel. Silberpfiel, meaning Silver Arrow in German, was a nickname giving to the race car because of its countless victories.
