During decades ago, Hispano Suiza was one of the most recognized high-end brands responsible to create and to build marvelous cars and airplane engines. The luxury brand reborn and revives the concept of Carmen, revealing a new model, the Hispano Suiza Carmen, a remarkable luxury electric car that will fit perfectly with a luxury lifestyle.
This unique car is synonymous of luxury, quality, and performance. As a limited-edition vehicle, the Carmen is fully electric, with two motors on the rear axle and they provide 1,019 horsepower to the coupe. The Lithium Ion battery pack, which sits in a T-shape low in the carbon-fiber chassis, will provide about 248 miles of range on a charge.
The top speed of this luxury car is limited to 155 mph, and it takes less than three seconds to hit 60. At 3,726 pounds, the whole modern car is moderately light, considering the heavy battery pack. Everything that could be made from carbon fiber was, including the monocoque cell, the chassis, eleven body panels, and more.
The luxury interior design is attractive and well appointed, drenched in leather, and an oak laminate runs atop the dashboard. This supercar is also personally perfumed because of the wood and leather fantastic smells fantastic it is. While the exterior contemporary design may certainly be polarizing, customers can opt to have the body painted in any hue they wish, or just leave it naked and show off all that carbon.
The luxury electric car Carmen, named after the current president’s mother, Carmen Mateu – who’s also the Hispano Suiza founder’s granddaughter – uses Formula E developed battery tech to send 1,005bhp to the rear wheels only, and with its top speed curtailed at 155mph.
With the total limited to 19 vehicles, this modern car is a proudly hand-crafted thing, with meticulous detailing, exquisite carbon weaving and an annual production run of seven cars.
The styling of this unique car is heavily inspired by the 1938 Hispano Suiza Dubonnet Xenia. And the teardrop shape, covered rear wheels and round headlamps are all a direct nod to a car from 81 years ago, a unique attitude in the electric car segment. Have you been amazed by this luxury car? This new Hispano Suiza model is perfect to live a unique experience!
