The motorsport-inspired Carmen Boulogne pays homage to Hispano Suiza’s competition heritage, which dates back to the 1920s. Building on the credentials of the existing Hispano Suiza Carmen, the sportier all-electric Carmen Boulogne boasts a top speed of 290km/h (180mph) and a 0-100km/h (0-60mph) time of under 2.6 seconds.
Combining its fully-electric 820kW (1,114PS) powertrain with a carbon fibre monocoque, stiffer double-wishbone front and rear suspension, and torque vectoring, the Carmen Boulogne delivers exceptional dynamics. With such prodigious power, and a kerb weight of 1630kg, the new variant has world-class performance capabilities.
The car’s carbon fibre bodywork is proudly displayed beneath a clearcoat varnish, and inside the Carmen Boulogne variant is distinguished from its sibling through the use of suede or black Alcantara across the bulkhead and door panels.
The Hispano Suiza Carmen Boulogne will cost from €1.65m (plus taxes). The five special edition Boulogne variants join 14 Carmen or Carmen customised models to complete the total 19-unit production run, with the first customer taking delivery in 2022.
