Supercharged: The Grand Prix Car is a slightly older documentary about some of the greatest years in Grand Prix racing – the 1924 to 1939 period. I don’t think any other era of motor racing has ever matched the sheer pace of innovation see in the pre-WWII years, and it’s unlikely that we’ll see anything like it again.

The film runs 49 minutes in length and takes the viewer on a whirlwind ride through the early days of Bugatti, Bentley and Alfa Romeo through to the gleaming silver German cars fielded by Audi and Mercedes-Benz just before the outbreak of all-out war in Europe.
