You don’t hear a lot about Spanish supercars, either as classics or as current models. Not only that, but the early ’50s was a pretty unlikely time for the country to be producing one. Spain had been through a civil war in the ’30s, WWII in the ’40s and was still in the grips of a fascist dictatorship. Yet somehow the semi-state-run Pegaso, a company that primarily built trucks and military equipment, decided to build a grand tourer. And not only did it build a grand tourer, but it built one of the most technologically advanced cars of its day, one that easily rivaled the cars built by the top companies at the time in desirability.
