A latecomer in the history of automakers, the Spanish company was founded in 1950.

This is not surprising as the country as a whole did not become a major producer of motor vehicles until the 2nd half of the 20th century.

The first cars were essentially Fiats due to their partnership with the Italian company, and it was only once Volkswagen took over the company in 1986 that the company took off and started to developed sportier, stylish models. Once more, success was twinned with extensive participation in motorsports.

Nowadays, its models are sold in more than 70 countries worldwide, though its core market remains in Europe.
