1954 Pegaso Z102B

The Spanish company, Pegaso, introduced their first automobile at the 1951 Paris salon. The name Pegasus was used, named after the mythical winged horse. In the engine bay lay an eight cylinder powerplant that was initally 2.5-liters in size but eventually grew to 4.7-liters. Its top speed was in the neighborhood of around 140 through 150 mph which made it the fastest production car at the time.
