    PROTOTYP -Das Automuseum Museum

    The Prototyp - Personen.Kraft.Wagen (persons.power.cars) museum in Hamburg opened in 2008 in Hamburg's Speicherstadt district. The permanent exhibition of the museum specializes in German sports and racing cars developed after WW II. The PROTOTYP museum ist privately funded and wants to convey excitement about cars by focussing the designers and race drivers like Otto Mathé and Petermax Müller who re-established racing after 1945. In many cases early race and sports cars in Germany were technically based on pre-war constructions like the Volkswagen. For that reason the PROTOTYP museum shows a special interest in this vehicle. In post-war racing unique self-built cars – prototypes – were designed and raced.
