The last letter from PEGASO the "Solo 500".

Pegaso's failed technical and technological revolution with its Solo 500

La última carta de PEGASO el “Solo 500”.

The doors were sliding and the steps to access the cabin were retractable.

For this, the well-known 12-liter engine was chosen by modifying the diameter of the piston and adding a turbo, an injection system ... The most curious thing, that ceramic elements were introduced into the engine to achieve those 500cv.


But the project stopped when it already had 10 orders for the vehicle to test in real conditions. A shame, since it would have been a true technical and technological revolution and a great leap in the world of commercial vehicles.

Remember that in Vallor Trucks there is the truck you are looking for, we have a large stock of:
