Chassis 0146 will be the one displayed by Hagerty. Shown originally at the 1951 Paris Salon held in the Grand Palais, it was then acquired by Jean-Claude Lamy. Lamy then entered chassis 0146 to a variety of competitions like the ’64 Rallye PanArmoricaine and the Rallye Sablé-Solesmes.

Eventually, the Soutchik was brought to America and it was sold to Bill Harrah, and it became part of his growing collection based in Reno, Nevada. Until his death in 1978, Harrah kept the highly original Z-102B in his collection. Chassis 0146 was then sold to Ralph Engelstad for the Imperial Palace Auto Collection based in Las Vegas. 65 years after it made its debut in the Grand Palais, in February 2019, chassis 0146 was back in Paris and made an appearance at the Retromobile event.

Aside from the beautiful Pegaso, the Hagerty stand at the 2022 Goodwood Revival Meeting will also have a Hagerty lounge and bar. There will also be a racing simulator, while members of the Hagerty team will make themselves available to give advice and guidance on their range of specialist insurance and other membership products.

Hagerty International Managing Director Mark Roper shared, “What a privilege it is to be custodians of such a rare and beautiful car for the duration of the 2022 Goodwood Revival. Not only will our stand offer a relaxed environment for guests to explore our enthusiast-led products and services, but it will also provide a rare opportunity to see the Pegaso Saoutchik Coupe up close, where every detail can be savoured. I look forward to welcoming guests to our stand throughout the Revival weekend and presenting this special car.”
