Marc Birkigt was a Swiss national who resided in Barcelona, Spain. He along with engineer Emilio de la Cuadra Albiol started the firm Hispano Suiza.
In the late 1920’s when car companies were developing more powerful engines, Hispano Suiza decided to develop their most powerful car. With a 9.4 litre 60° V12 engine, the J12 model having twelve cylinders and a 3-speed manual transmission had no comparison in it’s class. It’s performance was smooth with a quiet engine. It is also rumoured that this car once travelled a distance of thousand kilometres without change of oil or water.
Offered to coachbuilders with rolling chassis, the J12 was built by several firms.
The Mullin Automotive Museum is a world-famous museum that is present in California and belongs to Peter Mullin who runs an insurance and financial services business and has the best collection of some of the rarest cars. This Hispano Suiza J12 Cabriolet is one in their possession.
