The Bigata Douze was a prototype car and one of the first cars ever to run on GAS, the brainchild of the owner of EsGaz (France). After the war, most of Europe suffered serious fuel shortages and went about building this car as an experiment and business venture. At a party he saw a stunning 1930’s Auburn that he bought as the basis of the build, he then recruited the help of his Engineering Buddies at Boeing in Toulouse to perform the build.

The aeronautical cues & design inspiration are prevalant throughout the car, its beast like dimensions, its all riveted bare aluminium body, rear fin, highly instrumentised interior and build quality.

Since then the car has numerous awards and was of great interest to many well known personalities of its time including Fangio, Trintignant, Sommer.

A one off, true piece of engineering history.
