The development and recuperation of automotive industry in Spain has not been properly analysed. Without national OEMs and a very low internal demand the sector has shown strong symptoms of sustainability and growth. The sector is creating permanent and vauable jobs and seems to be an exception to the Spanish industrial decline. The Spanish automotive industry is agglomerated around seven clusters in the North, east and center of Spain. This aticle will try to aalñyse those factors that could explain the sector´s strenght from the pont of view of clusters. We hypothesize that a combination of cluster agents role and its capabilities contribute to the survival and competitiveness of the industry and overcome its weaknesses.
