From Race to road with Joan Orús, CTO of Hispano Suiza

Description

Hispano Suiza and competition have gone hand in hand since its inception in 1904. Since those years, participation in some of the most prestigious races of the time has not only given the brand an important national and international visibility, but has also allowed the brand to learn about the behavior of its vehicles brought to the highest level of demand, a key task to continue offering its customers increasingly powerful, reliable and, ultimately, better cars.In its new stage, Hispano Suiza has maintained this philosophy. Both the Hispano Suiza Carmen, as well as its more powerful version, Carmen Boulogne - which honors its triumphs in the George Boillot Cup, in Boulogne, a century ago - have been designed by competition engineers, and their development is in charge of authentic pilots racing. Likewise, Hispano Suiza officially participates in the new 100% electric SUV championship, Extreme E, an innovative category that promotes values ​​as important as sustainability, equality and electrification, and that will also provide valuable knowledge that the brand can apply in future models .

  • Hispano Suiza Carmen Boulogne

    Hispano Suiza has launched a second model, the Carmen Boulogne, a sportier evolution of the iconic Carmen. The Carmen Boulogne is a fully electric and exclusive hypercar designed, developed and manufactured in Barcelona (Spain), of which only five will be made.The Boulogne name dates back to 1921, when Hispano Suiza made a racing version of its high-performance H6 Coupé and entered it in the George Boillot Cup, an endurance race lasting more than 3.5 hours around the French city of Boulogne. There, Hispano Suiza achieved three consecutive victories with André Dubonnet (1921), Paul Bablot (1922) and Léonce Garnier (1923) driving the mighty Hispano Suiza H6.The Hispano Suiza Carmen Boulogne pays tribute to these historic motorsport victories with this powered version that delivers 1114 CV (820 kW) - 95 CV more than the Hispano Suiza Carmen - a maximum speed limited to 290 km/h and an acceleration of 0-100 km/h in just 2.6s. The Hispano Suiza Carmen Boulogne weighs 1,630 kg, 60 kg less than the Carmen. This reduction has been achieved thanks to the optimisation of structural elements such as the suspension, the carbon fibre subframe, new CNC parts and a carbon fibre roof, among other things.
