I always thought that he had some input into Dr Rumpler's 1922 Benz Tropfenwagen but the chronology doesn't fit.

One of the things which precipitated his departure from Daimler-Benz in 1929 was the rejection of his proposals for a straight-eight 3.0 litre GP car. Ten years later he was working with them again: not on a GP car this time, but the Mercedes Benz LSR car which was to have been driven by Hans Stuck.
I didn't know about his 1929 proposals. Any details as to what he had in mind? Was it rear engined? (probably not, with a straight 8). 1929 probably wasn't the best time to be proposing expensive development plans with any German company - or anywhere else for that matter.
