1935 Amilcar Type G36 Pegasé

During the 1930's, the Amilcar shifted offerings from sporty cars to large, multi-passenger vehicles. The Amilcar Pegase, though, retained the sporting heritage of the company. In 1937, a Pegase was entered into the prestigious LeMans endurance race. Mme. Roux, the wife of a wealthy Parisian surgeon, began racing a Pegase in 1936. She entered various races including the Marne Grand Prix and the Grand Prix de France. She later purchased an Amilcar Grand Prix car powered by a 2.5 liter Delahaye engine. It was entered in the 1938 Le Mans race.

1937 was the year that Hotchkiss merged with Amilcar. Two years later with the start of World War II, the factory was closed.

This 1935 Amilcar Pegase Grand Prix Roadster is the only surviving car of the Pegase series designed by the Fagoni it Falaschi designer, Geo Hamm. Power was supplied by a eight cylinder engine, designed by Delahaye 'Grillot' - one of only eight ever built.

Amilcar built its reputation on small runabouts and racing cars in the 1920s. They moved upmarket in the early 1930s with the Pegase Roadster, whose design is attributed to Figoni and Falaschi. Due to the expanding world-wide depression, very few cars were built.
