This book takes a graphic journey through the history of the automobile industry in Spain until the Civil War, from the most emblematic brands such as Hispano Suiza, Elizalde or David through other initiatives, such as Victoria, DyG, Ideal… without forgetting the bodybuilders . The role of the arrival of the car in very different scenarios is shown: travel, society, the military, the countryside and, of course, competitions, which were used by brands as an advertising showcase. Tribute is also paid to the first owners, who contributed to the national brands achieving international fame and were also the reason why, during the first quarter of the 20th century, Spain was an important client of such prestigious brands as Rolls-Royce, Bugatti or Mercedes-Benz. The figure of Alfonso XIII stands out, not only as a fan and motor enthusiast, but as a true promoter of its industry.
