Pegaso own bodywork "dome berlinetta", a Coupé futuristic with a large bubble-shaped rear defogger. It was the first own realization in aluminium (2 copies made, 1952/53).

Still very much a national affair, Pegaso were showing two Coupés on their usual chassis, there being no major changes since the car first stirred the sporting world some years ago. No doubt coupled with politics and higher finance is the reason that the Pegaso car has still not appeared in any numbers in Europe, though it would seem that they monopolise Spanish national sporting events. In order to show more clearly the interesting mechanical details of this V8-engined, de Dion-rear-axled car whose specification is of Grand Prix standards, a third car was on the Show stand, raised on a platform and fitted with a Coupé body made of Perspex. Not only was this exhibit a masterpiece of the Perspex moulders' art but the silhouette it formed looked much nicer than the metal-bodied Coupé alongside, which was obviously made on the same mould. It is strange that all Pegaso attempts at competition outside their own country have been pretty mediocre, yet the stand was covered in photographs of competition successes achieved in Spain!

Cabriolet by Saoutchik In 1953 Pegaso approached the French designer of Saoutchik, Philippe Charbonneaux, to request a design. Charbonneaux undertook the design and mandated his apprentice, Paul Bracq, to create two almost identical models painted in bicolor. The models were exposed during all Hall of the Paris motor of 1953 on the Saoutchik stand.
