The Spanish brand is reborn from its ashes in 2019 after more than 70 years, in an electric form. The first model of this revival of Hispano-Suiza is an electric hypercar by the sweet name of Carmen, the name of the founder’s granddaughter. Only 19 copies of the ultra-exclusive, handmade supercar will be built (5 for the Boulogne version), for a price set at around 1.6 million euros. The first customer model of the vehicle has just been delivered in the United States, to the famous collector Michael Fux.
With its neo-retro design drawing on the brand’s illustrious past, the Carmen has a curvaceous silhouette, with electric aerodynamics. Its radical version named Boulogne is even more exclusive and entirely in carbon fiber. Here, the rear wheels are not hidden, and the suspensions are firmer.
The butterfly doors open onto a luxurious and handcrafted interior, with quality materials and fine onion finishes. Two digital screens (one located behind the steering wheel and the other in the middle of the dashboard) allow the link between this artisanal past and ubiquitous technology. The first model delivered also allows you to get an idea of the customization possibilities of the design department.
Under the hood, Hispano-Suiza has teamed up with QEV Tech to develop a 100% electric motorization with two motors located on the rear axle, and developing a maximum power of 1119 horsepower for a torque of 1600 Nm. keeping the car under the 1.7 ton mark. The car is above all GT and comfortable, the top speed is limited to 250 km / h. The Hispano-Suiza Carmen Boulogne claims a range of 400 kilometers.
