The Hispano Suiza J12

#hashtags: #Introduced #Hispano Suiza

Introduced in 1932, the J12 was the definition of luxury travel for the well-heeled clientele of the day. It was generally powered by a 9.25-liter V-12 aluminum overhead-valve engine that produced 220 bhp and developed close to 400 foot-pounds of torque, allowing it to take almost any hill in top gear. Top speed of over 100 mph posed no problem. The engine ran silently and there was synchromesh transmission on the top two of the three forward gears.The Hispano Suiza J12 originally appeared on on Tue, 29 Sep 2015 14:42:32 EST.
