RegalaF1 is proud to present this unique oportunity; an authentic doublé Wheel manufactured by Borrani for one of the largest miths of the automotive history, the 1939 Auto Union type D that drivers like Tazio Nuvolari raced to the victory on grand prixes like the French and Yugoslavian among others.

This wheel comes from a private collection and has been kept in perfect condition.

The history of this part is really spectacular. This is one of the little parts that survived the second world war, together with three type D cars and a Type C and C/D.

They were part of the products hidden by Auto Union in lower Sajonia, and that after the Russian occupation were considered war possession and shipped to the Soviet Union for research purposes. The mayority of them were scraped although some parts, together with a complete type D car were purchased from ZIL – Russian vehicle manufacturer who had commissioned the scrap of the car to sell the metal -  and ofrtunatelly relocated to Lithuania as museum pieces.

This is one of the very rare parts on private collection and highly probably the only one on the market at an exceptional price.
