New ATM issue included in the vintage car series, the great Hispano Suiza 20-30 HP.
This vehicle was manufactured from 1908, with a chassis similar to the model 20-24 HP of 1906. Also the 4 cylinders engine is a evolution of the previous model.

The car that illustrates the issue was acquired in 1910 by Marquis de Zayas, of Granada, and was circulating until 1931 with the GR-60 matriculation.

This is the 2nd. ATM issue with a Hispano Suiza model; the previous one (2001) was the Hispano Suiza T

Also in 2003 the same car model has appeared in another philatelic issue in Spain, included in the souvenir-sheet commemorating the Centenary of the foundation of the Real Automovil Club de España (RACE).

The ATM show the image of a vintage car in the Museo de Historia de la Automocion de Salamanca (MHAS).
