Hispano Suiza Is Building Just Five Of These Sleek 1,100HP All-Carbon Supercars

Last year at the Geneva Motor Show, famed Spanish marque was officially revived via the introduction of the Carmen: a fully-electric 1,000hp+ hypercar created under the direction of Miguel Suqué Mateu, great-grandson of Damián Mateu who in 1904, co-founded the company with Swiss engineer, Marc Birkigt. And this week the exclusive make pulled the cover off its next exotic automotive offering with the new Carmen Boulogne.

Named after the French town where a Hispano Suiza H6 Coupé won the George Boillot Cup endurance event in 1921, ’22, and ’23, the new Carmen Boulogne builds on its predecessor’s already impressive performance. Now, however, it offers an impressive 1,100hp (820kW) output, a sub- 2.6 second 0-60mph time, and 180mph top speed. And it does all this while tipping the scales at less than 3,600lbs — more than 130lbs less than the standard Carmen thanks to a redesigned subframe, double-wishbone suspension setup, and a full carbon-fiber roof. Built around a carbon monocoque chassis — that weighs just 430lbs — and wrapped in full carbon bodywork, the vehicle also boasts AP Racing Radi-CAL brakes, 20-inch rims, and a beautifully-designed carbon, and Alcantara-clad interior. Built by the firm’s Unique Tailormade department in Barcelona, the Carmen Boulogne is limited to just five units, all of which will sell for €1.65 million ($1.841M).
