GWA pays tribute to the 1954 Studebaker Commander with a very special "Veinte Victorias" model

The 1954 Studebaker has been the only car in the history of the Carrera Panamericana race to win 20 times the race, out of which 9 were consecutive from 1993 to 2001.

Miami-based Gullwing America (GWA) has designed a tribute car named “Veinte Victorias” (meaning 20 wins) for all the times the Studebaker Commander has taken the first place in the 7 day race from border to border in Mexico.

GWA will build just 20 cars. 19 will be finished in yellow livery, and only 1 black version will be built to be kept as the pace car of the event for the years to come.

The classic body has been updated with modern touches and the result is a very clean and attractive car, riding on 19-inch wheels fitted with Bridgestone tyres hiding Brembo HPK brakes.

There is also a reinforced tubular chassis, new suspension and a new exhaust system by Fabspeed.

Power comes from a 6.2L LS9 Supercharged V8 motor from a Chevrolet Corvette producing 620 horsepower, linked to a 6 speed manual gearbox.
