The striking Carmen hyper-GT, signals the revivial of the historic Hispano Suiza brand, famed for their innovative designs from the early 20th century.
Produced in Spain by QEV Technologies, the Carmen is powered by two electric motors, one on each rear wheel, producing a whopping 1005bhp with the current 80kWh battery pack. 0-60mph is under 2 3 seconds, with a limited 155mph top speed.
A smooth teardrop shaped body covers the lightweight carbonfibre monocoque and subframe. Carbon is also used for the 380mm AP Racing brakes. The striking looks are enhanced by the enclosed rear wheels and powered scissor doors.
Due for production in 2020, just 19 examples of the Carmen will be built, priced at around £1.3m.
There is however, a slight controversy, in that two separate companies are claiming the Hispano Suiza name as their own. It will be interesting to see how this one is resolved.
