Hispano Suiza H6 Tulipwood 1924 1971 BOEING STEARMAN zw.psd
It is difficult to describe the interior of a car like the Hispano Suiza H6 a unique sports car from the 1920s. The company that made it, hispano suiza, went through more than fifty years of existence before they ceased its operations in the year 1963. Designed by Pininfarina, this little masterpiece from Italy is truly amazing and it's story is truly incredible. Made for a racing program, the H6 was originally conceived as a streamlined, low drag, high-speed vehicle that could take on any terrain. The original plan was to launch it against cars piloted by the legendary Juan Parra, the ace pilot who pioneered air-to-air combat during the World War II.
The original plan was to build it for the air show circuit in which it would run alongside fellow classic marques such as the Rebellion and the Pagani. However, in early tests the engine ran out of breath, so the team decided to install a two-litre V powering engine instead. To further reduce weight, the air intake was installed instead of a streamlined hood, and the result was the Hispano Suiza H6 - classically regarded as a sports car. The name "Hip" came about as a result of a test that the car carried out under wind resistance, and tests concluded that it had the ability to achieve great speeds even on a poor track. The Italians also added a long straight line called a birdie to their cars to increase down force, to improve cornering performance and overall handling.
