HistoryEdit

In 2010, several Spanish businessmen, including Pedro Julián Santos Perandones,[7] and a British manufacturer of racing cars joined together to create the company based in Valladolid.[1] As such, they received the Spanish tradition of luxury sports cars, in the early twentieth century championing the Hispano-Suiza company.[8]

Like all other supercars, the Tauro has high performance, superior to other cars, approaching levels of competition. For this very reason, they are produced in small series and made to order, with much of the manufacturing process done by hand.[5]
