Rare Lamborghini Faena: Pietro Frua's Masterpiece

ONE-OFF - Even if you have heard about it before, we are sure that some of you might not be familiar with it. The Italian coachbuilder Pietro Frua created the only four-door Lamborghini in existence in 1978. Known as the Frua Faena, this unique vehicle was built on a reinforced 1974 Espada Series II chassis (nr. 18224). The name Faena is derived from bullfighting; it signifies a series of passes performed by a matador using his sword and cape to demonstrate skill before the bull meets its end.

Pietro Frua took eight months to craft this four-door Lamborghini, stretching the standard Espada chassis by 178 mm (7 inches) to accommodate rear seats, resulting in a car that measured 4586 mm (18 feet) in length. This modification added 200 kg (440 pounds) to the total weight.

The Frua Faena made its debut at the 57th Salone Internazionale dell’Automobile in Turin during the spring of 1978, and evoked a range of reactions. Some visitors were captivated by its design, while others were less impressed. However, automotive journalist Max Stoop noted, "Frua managed once more to put a four-door, elongated Berlina on a Gran Turismo chassis and to equip it with four comfortable seats without compromising the car's shape."

It was shown again to the public at the 1980 Geneva Auto Show. The car's front lines were clean, featuring large headlights in twin pop-up units, but the rear design was less appealing, despite including a sliding sunroof. This feature contrasted with the unusual glass panel found on a specific Espada model.

Despite being described as a four-door coupé, the Faena had many characteristics of a shooting-brake, or estate car. Like the Espada, its hatchback cargo compartment was open to the rear seat passengers. Unfortunately, the Frua Faena was not a commercial success. Although it was expertly built, Frua's hope for limited production did not materialize, making this show car the only one ever produced.

After the Geneva Auto Show, the Faena was sold to Lambo-Motor AG in Basel, which then sold it to a German collector. This collector still owns the car, although it remains registered in Switzerland. In 1996, the Faena was displayed at the Pullicino Classics in London, where it was admired in very good condition despite not being restored.

The story of the Frua Faena is a testament to the innovative spirit and craftsmanship of Pietro Frua. It stands as a unique piece of automotive history, embodying the creativity and ambition of its creator. While it never saw mass production, the Faena remains a fascinating chapter in Lamborghini's storied legacy, a reminder of what can be achieved when vision and skill converge. | 8cppoBl6FrM |
For those lucky enough to see it in person, the Frua Faena is a striking example of automotive artistry, an enduring symbol of a bygone era in car design. *** [EKA | FROM VARIOUS SOURCES | PIETRO-FRUA.DE | OLDCONCEPTCARS | MYCARQUEST | LAMBOCARS | CARSTYLING.RU ]

Pegaso Z-902 Bacalao: Iconic 1950s Spanish Race Car Transporter

Forgotten ONES - Transporter vehicles often go unnoticed in the world of motorsport, yet they play a crucial role. These carriers ensure race cars arrive at their destinations safely and in style. In previous discussions, we delved into the 1955 Mercedes-Benz Race Team Transporter and the 1961 Cheetah Race Car Transporter. Today, let's explore an intriguing model from Spain, a country with a rich history in vehicle manufacturing, despite its relatively low profile in the global automotive industry.
The Pegaso Z-902 'Bacalao', a rare 1952 Spanish racing car transport vehicle, has been immortalized in diecast form. (Picture from: QuirkyRides's status on X)
Spain has produced a wide variety of vehicles, from passenger cars to trucks and motorcycles. Among these, the now-defunct Pegaso brand stands out, especially for its unique sportscars based on the Pegaso Z-102, such as the Cúpula from 1952 and the "Bisiluro" 1A Serie from 1953. Interestingly, Pegaso also ventured into the realm of transporter vehicles. One notable model is the Pegaso Z-902 'Bacalao', a sports vehicle transport truck of 1952 named at the La Sagrera factory in Barcelona.
The name 'Bacalao' is unofficial and refers to the design, which resembles the lateral gills of a codfish, known as bacalao in Spanish. (Picture from: es.Motor1)
The Pegaso Z-902 'Bacalao' was a familiar sight on Spanish roads from 1952 until 1970. Officially, only one unit was produced, although rumors suggest there might have been two, even more. This transporter was based on the Z-401 bus, with bodywork crafted by Carde y Escoriaza. Initially painted white and powered by a 145 hp gasoline engine, it was soon fitted with a six-cylinder diesel engine, likely producing 125 hp. The exterior colors were also updated over time.

One of the most striking features of the Pegaso Z-902 'Bacalao' was its unique body, measuring 11.0 meters long and 3.5 meters high, capable of carrying a couple of cars and some equipment. However, it typically transported just one vehicle along with a significant number of spare parts. The driver’s seat was centrally located above the engine, surrounded by seven windows, and the controls were somewhat unconventional. The handbrake and gearbox lever were on the left, while the gearbox itself was mounted on the steering stem, requiring drivers to adapt.

The cargo compartment of the 'Bacalao' featured a wooden floor, a small sink with a water tank, and a tool drawer. Notably, it had the lights from 1060 truck, including a green light that indicated safe overtaking opportunities. After being showcased in Madrid and Barcelona, the 'Bacalao' was used to transport and provide technical assistance for Pegaso Z-102 sports cars during training for the 1953 24 Hours of Le Mans.

Interestingly, the 'Bacalao' did not receive a permanent registration until 1957. Before that, it served various purposes, including as an advertising van during the 1955 Vuelta Ciclista a España and as an assistance vehicle in the port of Bilbao for ENASA-exported trucks. In the 1960s, it was highly sought after for sporting events both within Spain and internationally.

The 'Bacalao' underwent another makeover, being repainted entirely in blue with new mirrors and additional front lights. The 'Friends of Veteran Cars' association took custody of it, and in 1968, it supported the CS team and their Lola T-100. However, over time, it fell into disrepair and was eventually abandoned near the La Sagrera factory, ultimately being scrapped.

This unique vehicle, nicknamed 'Bacalao' or 'Codfish in English' for its lateral gill-like design, was initially immortalized by Modeltrans for a select few collectors and later 'democratized' by Salvat through its Pegaso model collection. The model stands out for its excellent finishes, fully metallic body (except for the rear doors), and detailed paint job, complete with ramps, historical license plates, and an accurate interior.
In conclusion, the Pegaso Z-902 'Bacalao' is a testament to the creativity and engineering prowess of the Spanish automotive industry. Its story, from its days of glory to its eventual decline, reflects a unique chapter in the history of vehicle transporters, leaving behind a legacy that continues to fascinate enthusiasts and collectors alike. *** [EKA | FROM VARIOUS SOURCES | ES.MOTOR1 | QUIRKYRIDES | ES.WIKIPEDIA | AUTOPIONEER.DE | PINTEREST ]
