The beginning of the century, wars, the conflicts – all this was reflected in characteristics of cars of Aquila Italiana brand which, nevertheless, were in demand. First, appearance: rough forms, acute angles, narrow wheels, dark colour and the general aggression associated development of the company with powerful tanks. Secondly, functionality: the speed developed by these cars, was rather high for those times. The good complete set also did not leave consumers indifferent.
Who could think that production will find such success, after all all began with usual automobile repair shop. Inspired by love to cars, founders of brand decided that the workshop status for them is low. Also it was decided to alter it in the research centre which was called by Aquila Italiana.
Sounds a little pathosly, the Italian temperament is felt. However the second word was the compelled additive because Aquila are designated in Italian by "eagle", and the automobile company with the "orlovy" name already existed – German firm Adler. Producers of Aquila could accuse of plagiarism therefore it was necessary to extend the primary name. By the way, and on a logo of the company the green stylised eagle, very terrible is represented.
The firm was based in 1906 in Italy, and two loud names entered into its history: marquis Giulio Pallavichino and engineer Giulio Cesare Kappa. Everything began, as was already told, from love to cars. The marquis worked in the Italian representation of English office Brown Karz. The short way of the research centre began with failure. Release of a couple of the cars equipped with engines with four and six cylinders and oppozitny valves was planned. However a little thought over financial side of a question gave up as a bad job plans, and the firm had to suffer monetary failures – one behind one. Besides, very the marquis, obviously, mostly sponsoring Aquila Italiana at the wrong time died.
So also there was this office of a usual workshop, but situation was rescued by bank, having got the considerable block of shares of the company and begun monetary injections in perspective production. It favorably affected company activity, and brand new cars of Aquila Italiana appeared on streets of the Italian city of Turin, Aquila homeland.
In 1907 the Aquila Italiana H-35/50 model was made. equipped with the six-cylinder engine with oppozitny valves. This car had capacity of 50 horsepowers, and engine capacity equaled to about 3,3 litres. The spar frame, a mechanical transmission and drum-type brakes of this model did not tell a new word in designing of cars. But the speed developed by the mechanism, made about 110 km/h that for that era was quite good result.
The car became prestigious. The success was supported also by achievements in sport. In 1914 the unit won some competitions. High high-speed qualities very strongly affected these victories, and high quality of assembly gave the chance to trust the car. The glory not for long however proceeded. In 1917 the Aquila Italiana company which has been pushed aside from the market by numerous competitors, died.
