Built in 1912, this Alfonso XIII sports a striking Torpedo body by Jaquot. One of its most unusual features is the bullet-shaped radiator, which was first seen on the competition Hispano Suizas entered for the 1912 Grand Prix de France. Among the first owners are believed to have been aviation pioneer and Avions Voisin test pilots Charles Nigg and Alphonse Carfogni. Today the car is in American hands and following a meticulous restoration, it is seen here during the 2011 Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance.
