Hispano Suiza breaks down what makes its Carmen a part of the exclusive hypercar club.
The Hispano Suiza Carmen is a car that is imbued with incredible amounts of automotive heritage and history, but at the same time, it’s incredibly futuristic and exquisitely designed, engineered, and made according to just about every modern standard in the automotive world. With electric power using engineering talent drive from Formula E, over-the-top design, and a high level of exclusivity, there’s no doubt that the Hispano Suiza Carmen and the even more powerful Hispano Suiza Carmen Boulogne are certainly qualified to be considered hypercars, but Hispano Suiza took the time to explain why.

Incredible power is the foundation of any hypercar, and the Carmen is no exception, with nearly 1,100 horsepower in the Carmen Boulogne, and 1,005 horsepower in the Carmen. The result is a 0-60 time under 3 seconds. On top of that is the car’s design, which is both heavily inspired by plenty of historic Hispano Suiza models like the 1930s H6C Dubonnet Xenia, and similar to modern hypercars with luxurious materials and a futuristic, athletic silhouette. Finally, the car’s exclusivity makes it deserving of the hypercar title, with a strictly limited production number of just 24 examples. This rare, impressive, and powerful car is everything that hypercars are made of, and more.
