The exhibition is called Windschnittig and will show you the development of streamlined bodies between 1900 and 1945.

In the early days of motoring, cars evolved towards higher speeds and the need to have good consumption. Both of these issues were solved by the first pioneers of aerodynamic solutions – Edmund Rumpler, Paul Jaray or Baron Reinhard von Koenig-Fachsenfeld. Their ideas and the ideas of other contemporaries moved the development of cars a long way ahead, even if customers and manufacturers did not understand at first what the benefit should be. Later, science came into play and the first wind tunnels began to emerge.

This was supposed to be a cheap aerodynamic Tatra for the masses.  She could have succeeded, but Hadimrška killed her

The new exhibition Windschnittig (roughly translated as “streamlined”) deals with the topic of aerodynamics, which can be visited at the August Horch Museum in Cvikov, Germany. This will remind you of the important personalities, technology, history and basic principles of aerodynamic cars between 1900 and 1945. You will also see a number of interesting vehicles as part of it.

“The highlight of the special cross-brand display is the Audi Type C Jaray, which was completed in 2023. Experts assumed that this car was built by Paul Jaray based on the Audi Type K. During the preparations for the special exhibition, research by the exhibition team proved that this car must have been built based on the Audi Type C,” Stefan Felber, curator of furniture at the Audi Museum, entices visitors.

The DSG transmission celebrates 20 years.  Its principle was once invented by the driver of the Russian Tsar, today it is ubiquitous

From December 1, another exhibition called Form vollendet will join, covering the history of aerodynamics up to the present day, and within which more than two dozen additional exhibits will be added. You have the chance to see both exhibitions until July next year, when the second part moves to Ingolstadt.
