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, used mainly Spanish-language sources and is about Hispano-Suiza cars, aero-engines, military vehicles, trucks and buses, the satellite Guadalajara factory and its products, racing cars and competition successes. The evolution of the French Bois-Colombes business and its glorious H6 and V12 models is also studied.
The second volume will trace the history and development of the fabulous Pegaso sports-cars of 1951-1958 designed by Wifredo Ricart, again using Spanish sources for the real inside story. The background to Pegaso sportscars is utterly fascinating; this book will trace the influences brought to Pegaso, firstly by Marc Birkigt and the long-established Hispano-Suiza factory in Barcelona, the pre-WWII career of Ricart with his own designs, then with Alfa-Romeo developing racing cars and aero-engines, his relationship with Enzo Ferrari and the social, commercial and political problems in Spain he had to overcome. This book will be the first to be published in English on Pegaso cars and is long overdue. Currently being researched and written, publication anticipated for early 2018.

Hispano -Suiza and Pegaso
En fait le tome 1 est sur Hispano et le tome 2 sur Pegaso- Ca oblige à acheter les 2 !
Inconographie faible- sans parler du texte non lu ...
Je regrette cet achat finalement !
Hispano Suiza and Pegaso
Es un libro muy interesante, un verdadero documento histórico con buenas fotos, muchas inéditas para mi. No hay apenas documentación sobre la marca con éste enfoque. Muy recomendable.
Por otra parte, el servicio y la atención de "Motors-Mania" es inmejorable. Muchas gracias.
