The bankruptcy of the Tucker Corporation in March 1949 puts an end to one of the most exciting experiences in the history of the American automobile. Preston Tucker built extraordinary cars for two years. The 6-cylinder boxer helicopter engine with a displacement of 5,500 cc made the Tucker 48, better known as the Torpedo, the fastest saloon in the United States, with a maximum speed of 220 km/h. A vehicle that, thanks to its reinforced cabin, was at the same time very safe. But the project failed due to economic difficulties, with only 51 units being manufactured.
