Driving the Monaco Grand Prix Track in a Silver Arrow

by Kenny Hoeschen

Chopard put the legendary driver Jacky Ickx in an Audi Union Silver Arrow on the circuit for the Monaco Grand Prix. The Audi Auto Union cars are famed track cars from the 1930s that are also notoriously difficult to handle, due to their extreme power and lightweight design. But Ickx shows his skills and his familiarity with a course he raced many timed during his career, reaching speeds as high as 300km/h (~186 mph) in the vintage racer.

Now, if we could just get Chopard to post only the original sound of this classic racer lapping at Monaco instead of superimposing a soundtrack over the top, we’d have a truly memorable video.
