At the mere mention of Pegaso in yesterday’s blog post, I’m sure many of you turned to your favorite reference books to fill in some of the blanks that Maxwell Innes left in his too-short article on the marque’s sports cars. For example, what’s up with the transmission behind the rear axle? And why in the world would he leave out the fact that Pegaso’s DOHC V-8 has demodromic valve actuation?
For those of you who did hit the books on Pegaso, or even those who read the article, you’ve got a leg up on this week’s Hemmings Six Degrees of Automotive Separation Challenge, which focuses on the Spanish truckmaker. this week’s challenge will be a return to the wide-open fox-and-hound format, which means that we won’t be restricting you on the companies you can or cannot connect to Pegaso, but we will award bonus points to anybody who doesn’t use the truck-building side of the company in their answer.
For newcomers to the game, the fox-and-hound format works like this: The first person to leave a comment here gets to suggest another company to connect to Pegaso in six degrees or less. Whoever successfully answers that challenge then gets to suggest another company to connect to Pegaso, and so forth. As always, a connection consists of one company owning another, merging with another or sharing another’s parts.
