For those who love classic cars or are enthusiasts of automobiles in general, it is really a no brainer that the name Hispano Suiza instantly reminds one of the finest sports cars ever created. Started by Mario Hispano in 1924, this company went on to create some of Italy's most beloved and successful car manufacturers during the decades that were known as the Italian Motor Car Industry's Golden Era. The company continued to stay on top of their craft and their reputation would never fade even after so many years. Today, more people are beginning to realize just how long this company has been around for.
For those unfamiliar with the company's past, it was founded by Mario Hispano Suiza, a car enthusiast from Milan. It was then that he started experimenting with the new types of materials that could be used to make a quality sports car. He decided to use aluminum alloys for the bodywork, using a magnesium spindle that incorporated the use of the material known as magnesium metallurgy, which meant that the H6b bonnet was developed at a much higher level.
The original intention was to develop an automobile that could be used to compete in the prestigious 24-hour race that was organized by the Grand Prix of Barcelona. The first model that was produced was the Hispano Suiza H6b bonnet, which was fitted with a water-cooled 4-cylinder engines and featured a transmission that had shift paddles. The brakes were also upgraded, with two independent discs instead of the one that were offered on the stock model. As such, this car is considered to be one of the first water-cooled automobiles ever produced, making it an excellent example of a classic engine. It also features a manual transmission and was completed with real Brembo brake pads.
