Pegaso

The Pegaso Z-102 car developed by Don Vilfredo Ricart who worked on the National Pescara car earlier became the first model of the company, and in military years was the technical director of the company of Alfa Romeo. When designing the car Pegaso, Vilfredo Ricart used the latest, the most perspective, according to his opinion, development.

The car was equipped with the V8 motor of 2,5 lira which was supplied with four top camshafts – on 2 on a number of cylinders. The engine was made in general of an aluminum alloy and equipped with Weber carburetors. At equipment by the 170 horsepowers motor, the car could accelerate to 225 km/h. Though it is only the main characteristics of the unit as the car changed from the order to the order. As a back suspension bracket development of the De Dion company with cross torsions while on Ferrari still established not cutting back bridge was used. The forward suspension bracket was the torsion.

Assembled the Pegaso Z-102 car on a steel frame platform with strengthening which consisted of the numerous welded details. Drum brakes were bulky and were established on back wheels. The car at the Parisian automobile exhibition in 1951 was presented and was positioned as the fastest around the world. And in 1953 on the route in Yabbeke (Belgium) the car set up a speed record from start – 245 km/h.

All details were made for the car directly at plants of the company, only bodies were made by other firms. Only some copies made independently, and the main part of bodies was provided by the Italian firm Touring, and Touring Berlinetta became the most popular of them. Sometimes released cars with a body of Saoutchik firm.

In 1952 at the New York automobile exhibition the option of the Pegaso Z-102 model with a body from El Dominicano with an original expressive form of a radiator was presented. Also also different types of the installed engine which were issued with pressurization and without it were offered.

In 1953 the company let out the first model prepared specially under competitions in Le Mans. However the car and took in them part because of breakages on trainings. The car on the Mexican route Carrera Panamericana became the following loss. At that time Pegaso Z102 equipped with the 2,4 liters engine without pressurization didn't concede the Jaguar XK120 model. In turn, the development of Pegaso equipped with the 3,2 liters motor with pressurization which power made 285 horsepowers, quite successfully competed with Ferrari and Mercedes-Benz.

In 1955 the Pegaso Z103 model which chassis didn't differ from the previous model was let out, but the engine was changed. This motor was also V8, and volumes made it nearly 4 liters, 4,5 and 4,8 liters which power was respectively 247, 285 and 289 horsepowers. Besides, developers of this Pegaso model sought to reduce noise level. But the car didn't add popularity of the company – Pegaso Z103 cars was collected less than five.

As the purpose of the enterprise consisted in a raising of prestige of the state, and shareholders the state company, naturally, had no, profitability of the realized cars interested nobody. Though the cost of cars was quite high. They were made under the order, and gathered very long. For the first seven years of production of automobile cars only 128 copies – difficult and very expensive cars were made.

In the late fifties the ENASA concern completely switched to production of trucks which were considerably in great demand. In the same time the developer Vilfredo Ricart went to the Lockheed France company, having held the president's post there.

Since then the company existed, regularly developing new models which didn't get special laurels, but popularity enjoyed. And at the end of the last century the ENASA enterprise signed the agreement on assembly of Pegaso cars with the British company IAD. It was planned to start in production the Z103 model collected from modern accessories. Pegaso IAD Z103 which was published in the late nineties of the XIX century was stylized under models of the 1950th years, and the fiberglass body was developed by the famous Spanish engineer of Pedro Serre. The Pegaso IAD Z103 model was completed with the Rover V8 engine, and the back suspension bracket and a transmission were taken from Alfa Romeo 75.

This model turned out very successful, but since then the Pegaso company doesn't please the admirers with new interesting development.
