    Pegaso was an established company noted for its trucks and motor coaches, but also produced sports cars for seven years. Pegaso chief technical manager by then was Wifredo Ricart, former designer of the Alfa Romeo 512, and fellow rival of Enzo Ferrari, who at the time had also worked for Alfa Romeo.

    Pegasos achieved much better results in several Concours d'Elegance contests. A Pegaso Z-102 coupé by Saoutchick, owned by Baron Thyssen-Bornemisza, was in this respect the epitome of coachwork sophistication, as it had seats upholstered with leopard skin and controls in gold, and in such a finish it won the 1953 Enghien-les-Bains (France) Grand Prix d'Elegance.

    The back of my neck tingles when I see the name Saoutchik. Of course...my mind immediately goes to the Andre Dubonnet Streamliner.

    Very rare and very nice, and most especially- very expensive!! Imagine, this car, in GT6, it will cost like a whopping...

    Cr. 20,000,000.

    My gawd, it's a Saoutchik. A good find, this. Maybe too rare and too obscure for Kaz-san to know about this car...
    Now you've given me an idea for a post.....

    I totally agree with you but that's why I suggested this car ... hopefully PD will notice.
