Stromlinie 75 Concept Car uses the seamless aerodynamic shape of the classic Type C but revamped it for the consumers of 2013. This one-seater sports car differs from its predecessor as the body is wider and longer, along with an added retractable spoiler. Rittwage decided to keep the famed four rings on The Stromlinie, although these now signify only Audi, and not all of Auto Union.
From Auto Concept Review: This clean and functional berlinetta body style by Pinin Farina first appeared on the 250 MM with 2.400 mm wheelbase and 200 hp 3.0 Litre engine. It participated in the 1952 Mille Miglia , Le Mans 24 Hours and Carrera Panamericana.
The Pinin Farina berlinetta body style started from the round radiator grille aperture feeding air to the engine compartment. The clean body flanks terminated in a curved wraparound rear end with a panoramic rear window. A cylindrical air scoop above the rear wheelarches ensures both brake cooling and suspension traveling. Nothing in this shape is superfluous, it looks like every surface shape is essential. MM goes for Mille Miglia and commemorates the 1950 and 1951 victory of Ferrari in this famous Italian endurance event.

A primary component of what makes the automobile such a passionate pursuit is the experience of a great drive. A great drive has become something of a rarity, though, especially if one wishes to drive something vintage, and perhaps worth quite a bit of money. It would be a rare sight to see a restored Jaguar E-Type mixing it up in rush hour traffic. While it may be less uncommon to see such a car cruising up Highway 1 from Carmel to Monterey, would that truly constitute a great drive?
What about cruising through the Northern Rocky Mountains from Montana into central Canada on scenic mountain roads with little or no traffic? Sounds like a perfect place to exercise your vintage car in a way that might otherwise be highly improbable.
If you have an appropriate vintage car, manufactured prior to 1973, and think this sounds like a perfect way to spend six days in September, let me introduce you to my friend Patrick Bryson and the Going To The Sun Rally. Now in its ninth year, the Going To The Sun Rally is similar to other vintage rallies held across the country, but offers the wide-open roads and spectacular scenery of Montana, its neighboring states, and Canada. It was organized as a non-profit, and has donated over $400,000 to local Montana charities. Patrick has served as rally director, and currently assists in the planning and running of the event. He was kind enough to sit down with me and share what makes this event so special.
