Spot of the Day: Adler Le Mans / Super Trumph from 1937
Stunning. Gigantic. Unique. What words could describe this Adler Le Mans / Super Trumph from 1937 better?
It's often that I get overwhelmed when I see a Car, but this time I was totally speechless.
Approximately Six cars were built in 1937 and took part in the 1937 and 1938 24 Hours of Le Mans. With its 60 hp and 750 kg, it ranged in two years for a sixth place overall and victory in 1937 for the class up to 2000 cc.
On Sunday I went to the Mountain race "Haldenhof Revival" in Ludwigshafen at the Lake of Constance, in Germany. The Adler participated for the watch manufacturer "Junghans Uhren".
