The proyect of building a Berlineta Touring Pan for 1953 was suspended due to the lack of time, but the next year it was inscribed sponsored by Rafael Leónidas Trujillo, expresident of the Dominican Republic. This the model that Slot Classic offers you: the Spyder Touring 3.2 with a compressor and two carburettors.

The vehicle was driven by Joaquín Palacio and Celso Fernández, although Palacio made the race alone. Celso Fernandez was with the two mechanics sent by Enasa. The route consisted of 3.077 Km divided in several stages. It crossed Mexico from the north to the south; from Tuxtla Gutiérrez to Ciudad Juarez. In the first stage, of 530 Km, the Pegaso failed because the car needed a special combustible and they had to adapt it for the comercial gasoline of 80 N.O. that the regulations obliged to use. When they fixed the problem, the quick Palacio started a spectacular recuperation which took him to the first places: fourth in the second stage and third in the third one. The fourth stage went from Mexico to Leon, and there was few visibility due to the dense fog. The Pegaso worked perfectly and Palacio continued ascending in the ranking. He circulated faster than 210 Km/h when he was sorprended by a curve with a great amount of spectators invading the road due to the accident of a german contender that had ran off the road moments before. Palacio couldn’t do anything to keep the car in the road and he thrown off when the car overturned. A shame, since Palacio’s demonstration of speed and the potential of the Pegaso would have surely been rewarded with a great final classification.
