Subscriptions & booklets

A At the beginning of the 20th century, Hispano Suiza was known for its luxury cars, but then fell into slumber for almost 80 years. In 1938 the last historical Hispano Suiza vehicle was manufactured in Paris, production was closed shortly afterwards. The Austrian automobile designer Erwin Leo Himmel had revived the brand and presented a first study of the super sports car in Geneva in 2010. The series version of the Hispano Suiza Maguari HS1 GTC will follow in 2019.

V10 with 1,085 PS

The Hispano Suiza Maguari HS1 GTC is in the final test phase. The 5.2 liter V10 mid-engine relies on biturbo charging and additional electric compressors. The engine base comes from another manufacturer - we suspect the roots are with Lamborghini. In total, this should set 1,085 hp, which accelerate the Maguari from zero to 100 km /h in 2.8 seconds. The top speed should be electronically limited only at 380 km /h. The drive torque of the V10 is passed on exclusively to the rear wheels via a seven-speed automatic with sequential mode - another reference to Lamborghini.

The flat body is made of carbon fiber laminate. The bow is shaped by powerful cooling air ducts, from the center of which the brand stork protrudes, as well as vertical LED indicators and flat LED main headlights. The fenders are widely exposed. The flanks are emphasized by large air inlets as well as distinctive beads and indentations. The engine cover is presented as a transparent scales. The rear view shows large ventilation openings, a wide LED light strip as well as four tailpipes and a powerful diffuser.

Hispano Suiza is not the same as Hispano Suiza

The name of Hispano Suiza's car division comes from the South American Storch - the historical symbol of the brand. The delivery of the first vehicles with a starting price of 2.2 million euros is planned for the end of 2019. The brand is particularly focused on the markets in Asia, the Middle East and the USA.

According to Himmels, the Hispano Suiza Carmen - a super sports car with electric drive - announced for Geneva by the company Hispano Suiza Cars has no connection whatsoever with of Hispano Suiza Automobilmanufaktur AG, which he founded in 2010.
