History

The Spanish automotive and engineering firm, Hispano-Suiza, had a reputation for their luxury cars and their aviation engines in the pre-World War II period.

The Hispano-Suiza K6, often referred to as the 30HP, was introduced in the early 1930s. It was available on two platform sizes, a short or long frame. The K6 served as a replacement for the Ballot and provided its customers a less-expensive option to their J12 flagship model.

Powering the K6 was an overhead valve, 5.2-liter engine that was designed by Marc Birkigt and featured overhead valves. Power was in the neighborhood of 120 horsepower.
