Hispano Suiza, a Spanish manufacturer of hyper-luxury vehicles founded in Barcelona in 1904 by the Suqué Mateu family, continues its international expansion process. Its new model, the Carmen, and its sportier version, the Carmen Boulogne, will be sold in Germany by the Mohr Group, at its exclusive showroom located in Motorworld München.
For Hispano Suiza, expansion into Germany is a huge challenge, one that is met with great enthusiasm. The exclusive 100% electric hypercars of the historic Spanish brand will enter the main automotive market in Europe to attract the most demanding customers, with a product with unbeatable technical and design characteristics.
Hispano Suiza will be part of the range of models present at the new Mohr Group showroom located in Motorworld München. It is a 1,600 m2 space where the Group, led by the Mohr brothers, Luis and Lorenz, will showcase an amazing display of luxury vehicles, including hypercars and classics.
Miguel Suqué Mateu, President of Hispano Suiza, commented: “Selling our fully electric hypercars, the Hispano Suiza Carmen and Carmen Boulogne, in Germany is one of the most important challenges we will face this year. We firmly believe that, together with the Mohr brothers, we will connect with customers and hypercar collectors in Germany, a country with a deep knowledge and passion for the automotive industry. ”
“We are very honoured to become the first representative for Hispano Suiza Cars in Germany. We will offer all customers a great brand experience and the Carmen itself will take their breath away” said Lorenz M. Mohr, Managing Partner of the MOHR GROUP.
Hispano Suiza Carmen, an authentic work of art
The Hispano Suiza Carmen is a fully electric vehicle, which has been designed, developed and manufactured in Barcelona. It combines exhilarating performance, 1,019 HP (1,115 HP in the case of Carmen Boulogne), with a design characterized by sportiness and timeless elegance, which clearly sets it apart on the road.
Only 19 units will be made, five of them in the Boulogne version, in homage to the victory achieved by the brand in the George Boillot Cup 100 years ago. Their style is heavily influenced by Hispano Suiza cars of the early 20th century, specifically the 1938 Hispano Suiza H6C Dubonnet Xenia, a one-off exquisite design. The Carmen encapsulates the brand’s legacy of elegance and design in a modern ´hyperlux´ vehicle. Prices for the Carmen start at 1.5 million Euros.
