IAME (Industrias Aeronáuticas y Mecánicas del Estado), an Argentinian government firm formed to manufacture aircraft didn’t have any ready foreign collaborators but this firm had already had invested on land, factory structure and manpower resources. After a small gap, the IAME management decided to utilise her ready infrastructure to produce cars. Their first model Justicialista was a 2-stroke, 2-cylinder engine car that was produced with the help of DKW, Germany.
General Peron (his wife was Eva Peron) who was then the Argentinian President, wanted that IAME should also produce a sports model. This led to a collaboration with Porsche in 1951 to develop a 4-cylinder 1.5 litre engine that gave a power output of 55 hp. The new model was named Justicialista Grand Sport that had a fibreglass body that kept her weight low.
About 170 odd sports cars were produced until 1953.
