The Stromlinie 75 Concept Car is a modern classic car rendition of the car Bernd Rosemeyer died in 75 years ago trying to set a speed record. It is a stunning and sleek tribute to the classic car.

The original car from the 30s was called the Auto Union Type C Silver Arrow. Luke Rittwage has captured its modern take brilliantly and does so with modern needs in mind. Does it get any more streamlined than this Stromline? It appears to be incredibly aerodynamic and carries a pleasant, futuristic style with a retro twist.

That fateful moment when Rosemeyer’s life came to an end chasing his dream will forever be remembered in this wonderful modern classic car design concept.
