Hispano Suiza H6Tulipwood 1924.psd
One of the rarest cars in the world is the Hispano Suiza H6 Tulipwood from 1924. It was created for the Blackhawk Museum in Danville, California, and has been produced in a limited edition ever since. This model was created to be a unique and luxurious model. It radiates exclusivity and class. And you can add paint to make it even more special.
This classic car is one of the few remaining examples of the original 1924 Hispano-Suiza production line. The tulipwood body was designed and built by Nieuport, which produced 28 fighter planes during World War I. The H6C engine produced 8 horsepower and was paired with a three-speed manual transmission. Andre Dubonnet commissioned the car and entered it in the Targa Florio in 1924.
This Spanish-Swiss luxury saloon was built in Paris and Czechoslovakia under license from Skoda. The car was only ever supplied as a rolling chassis and custom bodywork was manufactured by the finest car-body builders in Europe. The H6T was a winner of the Targa Florio in 1924. It was a true triumph and Andre Dubonnet even drove home in it from Naples.
The Hispano-Suiza H6 Tulipwood is a classic luxury car with an excellent history. This automobile was a marvel of engineering. During the First World War, the company had designed and built 50,000 V-12 airplane engines. This was the basis for the H6. The Hispano part of the name referred to the firm's Barcelona location. The Suiza part was the name of the Swiss engineer Marc Birkigt, who was recruited by Emilio de la Cuadra.
