Pegso El Coche Español de Ensueño/Spain’s Dream Car.
Pegaso was a commercial brand of the Spanish group ENASA, a manufacturer of trucks, buses, tractors, armoured vehicles, and, for a certain period, of sports cars. In the early 1950s, Pegaso started the production of about a hundred Z-102 sports cars.
These cars were, in some respects, very advanced for the time as they had a five-speed gearbox and very powerful four-camshaft supercharged engines and light alloy construction. The 1953 Z-102 was able to reach 225 km/h.
The chassis was offered for sale with the choice of various bodies, produced by the Italian Touring, the French Saoutchik, the Spanish Serra, or by Enasa itself.
In this volume, Mario Laguna has done an extraordinary and indispensable work for fans of the mythical Spanish brand.
In the text 83 cars are treated and the author pays a particular attention to the 67 survivors. Chassis, engine, type and body number are shown. In addition, the list of international events and articles that saw the Pegaso cars as protagonists. And, for modeling enthusiasts, the list of the main miniature reproductions of Pegaso cars.
