Hispano-Suiza & Pegaso




Hispano-Suiza and Pegaso, Birkigt & Ricart.
Two brilliant engineers and the two marques they established in Spain.

The first volume of two, it covers Hispano-Suiza from 1904 to 1939 primarily from the perspective of Barcelona rather than Bois-Colombes in France. I have used mainly Spanish-language sources and have written about Hispano-Suiza cars, aero-engines, military vehicles, trucks and buses, the satellite Guadalajara factory and its products, racing cars, competition successes and the world-famous Hispano-Suiza 20mm cannon. The evolution of the French Bois-Colombes business and its glorious H6 and V12 models is also studied.
