Z-102 GT Berlinetta Enasa
The Pegaso automobile was a supercar developed in Spain under the supervision of Enasa (Empresa
Nacional de Autocamiones, SA), a National company that produced buses and trucks. Under the direction of Pegaso was Mr. Wilfredo Ricart, a visionary Spanish engineer from the developing department of Alfa-Romeo.
Mr. Ricart and his team produced a first prototype, chassis 150-0101, that was followed by a cabriolet, with chassis 150-0102 and three more Berlinettas. Interestingly, there is no evidence that chassis 0102 was formally a cabriolet, as nobody ever saw the car with the top down.
After the 1951 Paris Motor show, on December 10, chassis 0102 along with other two prototypes were presented at the Pardo Palace in Madrid to General Franco.
Year 1952 should have been the year that production of the Z-102 cars started, but the design team at Enesa continued developing the prototypes, including the new 2814cc engine and some body
re-styling. It is then when chassis 0102 was converted into the actual Berlinetta configuration. Also the primitive 2474cc engine was replaced for the new 2814CC engine. Why the cabriolet Enesa design was not developed is a mystery.
With this new configuration, Enesa presented the Z-102 chassis 0102 during 1953 in various international Concours d'elegance, including Deauville and Enghien-les-Bains, where it won the first prize.
After an accident in 1954, the car was repaired at the factory, and sold in 1955 for the first time as a new car, adopting the actual identification 150-0201. It is noteworthy, that this Berlinetta and the other surviving prototype, are the two only Z-102 that were later numbered with the 02XX identification, different from the rest of the cars, that are 01XX.
The first owner Mrs Elena Arvanitidi de Ramsay from Madrid, and after four more owners, the car passed in 1972 into the ownership of Mr. Carlos Mosquera, a notable Pegaso enthusiast and co-author with Mr. Enrique Coma-Cros of the recognized book “Los Automóviles Pegaso y sus protagonistas”. During Mosqueras ownership, the car was very well maintained and in 2003 the car was object of a massive work, including al the mechanical components, the engine, the body and the interior.
The car has recently been completely repainted from bare metal, in the original light green as in 1953. All chrome was redone, all rubbers renewed. The underside of the car, all mechanic and engine were iceblasted and repainted. A new front windscreen was fitted. In other words, the car is completely refreshed and in superb condition. The car still has the original Robri wheels. The car also has a Fiva identity card and has Belgian registration papers.
Without a doubt this Pegaso Z-102 is a very special and ultra rare car, with an exceptional history that presents a unique opportunity to acquire a masterpiece in the motorsport industry.
