And of course the famous Cupola Coupe.

This car is now in the Dutch Louwman Collection.
In the color pics it seems to look quite alright, but it is currently being restored in a workshop just 4 miles from where I live.
I went over for coffee last weeks and saw the sand blasted body with extensive chassis restorations. Underneath the silver paint, the car seemed to be in a very bad condition... The restoration is being done while making use of as much as original body parts as possible, maintaining as much as the original identity.

Unfortunately I was not allowed to take any photos...
One thing that amazed me was the welding of the chassis. It was quite a mess and I asked if that was done during an earlier badly performed restoration, but I was told those messy weldings were original.

How many Cupula Coupes have been built? One of them was built for Trujillo and was knows as 'El Domincano', right?

As far as I know at least two have been built: 0-0120 and 0-0121. The later one is originally(?) yellow El Dominicano.

Just a couple of comments:
-According my notes, E.N.A.S.A. designed and made in-house12 GT and 8 Sport diverse bodies. i,e : 20 bodies over 18 chassis.
-Some authors claim there were two diverse so-called "Cupola" berlinetta cars, ( chassis nº ..0120 and ...0121 respect. ).
IMO it was just one the ...0120, slightly restyled. This styling exerciase, widely nicknamed by the works team at the time as: "Profiled Coupe" , "Aero Berlina", "Flying Saucer" and finally "Rosa de Te" due to the curious paint work applied , made with two guns, carrying two colour shades simultaneosly. At the 1953 NY Sports cars and Hartford shows had diverse minor cosmetic changes( upholstery, bumpers, telescopic rear windscreen...) from her firsts outings at Paris and London motorshows of 1952, some months earlier.
The car has had a quite shaken life and suffered some major surgery during her American sojourn including a poor made conversion to spyder in 1954 to recover, more or less, her original shape and colour (with horrendous red wire wheels) later on in 1976 in Denver.

Manel, could you tell us something about the Cangrejo? A (for me) mysterious and astounding one!

Chassis # … 107 was one of the ENASA second series berlinetta and the most loved by works drivers-testers . It was an special lightweight , espartane version built in 1952, of in-house former body designs, propelled originally by the 2.8 version of the V8 engine and fed by four twin downdraft Webers. The aluminium bodyshell was filled with lots of louvers , Perspex windows, a twin 160 l. fuel tank, side exposed exhaust pipes below the doors and esported huge wheel openings to easy engine and brake cooling, the Achile’s heel of most 50´s sport-racing cars.
Intended for endurance racing, she became in fact a works testbed sampled by diverse European motoring press (The Motor, Motor Revue, The Autocar …) wearing diverse grille and engine covers layouts.
Sadly, “El Cangrejo” (The Crab) as was warmly nicknamed, was destroyed by a fire late 1953 during road testing at the Arrabassada hill, close to Barcelona, and dismantled after covering more than 60 000 miles on testing

Thank you so much Manel. We must remember Pegasos were really wild beasts.

The engineering brainchilds signed by of WP Ricart used to be handsome and sophisticated (just remember his famous Alfa-Romeo exercises).
The Pegaso cars and trucks were no exception: their advanced and refined mechanicals collected the highest praises around for her beauty and cost-no-object solutions adopted, however they tended to be both expensive to produce and difficult to service. They certainly were splendid samples of high school enginering but far from practical for their owners in those starved years of the country autarchy . In Ricart favour, must remember E.N.A.S.A. board did not trusted on him as a manager and soon had no time and means to develop the car properly. Ricart was a dreamer and an "engine man" much in the line of Colombo or Jano.
The engine and drivetrain of the Z-102 c'est magnifique to look at but somewhat fragile. The frame and the Dion rear suspension layout resulted IMO, quite heavy and insuitable for a GT car. They excelled mostly in short races such hillclimbs, against a modest opposition.
The Pegaso image greatly benefits from their scarce production figures and, like many other cars of the period, from her beautiful bodies from Carrozzeria Touring at his highest period. What, for instance would be Maser, Ferrari or Lambo devoid of Italian coachbuilders art?
We could talk for hours....

Is my aim to collect all Pegasos with their chassis number and original registrations. In ENASA, Touring, Soutchik and Serra. My collecton has 82 which I will post little by little. I hope Manel Baró and others as well will survey and correct me when wrong. To they the whereabouts of them all.
So let's begin with the ENASA berlinettas.

PS. I've used the last digits of yhe chasis numbers to simplify the recognition
