The Hispano-Suiza H6 is a luxury automobile that was produced by Hispano-Suiza. Introduced at the 1919 Paris Motor Show,[1] the H6 was produced until 1933.[2] Roughly 2,350 H6, H6B, and H6C cars were produced in total.

The H6 engine featured a straight-six engine inspired by designer Marc Birkigt’s work on aircraft engines.[3] It was an all-aluminium engine displacing 6,597 cubic centimetres (403 cu in).[4] Apart from the new overhead camshaft, it was essentially half of Birkigt’s aviation V12 design.[3] The seven-bearing[4] crankshaft was milled from a 600 lb (272 kg) steel billet to become a sturdy 35 lb (16 kg) unit,[1] while the block used screwed-in steel liners,[4] and the water passages were enamelled to prevent corrosion.[5]

One of the most notable features of the H6 was its brakes. They were light-alloy drums on all four wheels[5] with power-assist[1][2][3] the first in the industry,[citation needed] driven with a special shaft from the transmission. When the car was decelerating, its own momentum drove the brake servo to provide additional power.[1] This technology was later licensed to other manufacturers, including arch-rival Rolls-Royce.[2][6]

The 1922 H6B was slightly more powerful. An 8.0 litres (488 cu in) (110 by 140 mm (4.3 by 5.5 in)) engine was used in 1924’s H6C.[1]
