Apparently, Hispano-Suiza actually produced one of the world’s first electric cars back in 1900, but it was just a prototype that was never brought to market. Mateu plans to change that with Hispano-Suiza’s first new car since 1937, a supercar to be called the Carmen. The name was borrowed from the granddaughter of the founder, who is also the mother of Hispano-Suiza’s current head.
We’re still a month out from the Carmen’s Geneva debut, and we’ve only got a handful of teaser images on which to pull thoughts, but that shadowy shape shows some classic lines. The rear fender is reminiscent of 1920s-era Art Deco cars. Big, almost cartoonish fenders present a bold stance, and that interior image suggests a digital instrument cluster will be present for a modern touch.
But it’s truly hard to tell what’s happening with the rest of the car in the images. Regardless, we’re eager to learn more. Hopefully Hispano-Suiza rolls out more teasers as we inch closer to the time of the full reveal.
