3D style vintage Nurburgring map

This old skool 3D style map gives a great appreciation of the elevation changes of the Nordschleife (and the Südschleife, too, see top right of frame). Its detailed painting and vibrant colours complement this other vintage map nicely. For a closer look, click on the image above to load a 1600px version.

After the jump you can read a rough translation of the German text.
