Hispano Suiza Maguari HS1 GTC Is A New Supercar From An Old Brand

Hispano Suiza has rolled out an all-new supercar named the Maguari HS1 GTC. The resurrected Spanish coachbuilder teased an all-new vehicle a few months ago, stating that it was 100 per cent electric.

However, as we’ve discovered, that vehicle is being developed by a company called Hispano Suiza Cars. By comparison, the Maguari comes from Hispano Suiza Automobile Manufaktur AG. Both companies claim to have the rights to the name, which indicates that a legal battle between the two is quite possible.

Powering the Maguari HS1 GTC is a V10 reportedly derived from the powertrain of the Lamborghini Huracan to which two electric compressors were added. Reports quote an extraordinary 1070 hp, a sprint to 62 mph (96 km/h) in 2.8 seconds and a 236 mph (379 km/h) top speed.

The Maguari gets its name from a stork found in South America and includes a bold emblem sticking out of the front bumper in the shape of the bird. Other intriguing parts of the supercar’s design include sharp headlights, a low-slung roof, a lightbar connecting the two taillights, white wheels, and quad tailpipes.

Hispano Suiza was founded in 1904 and was responsible for building a plethora of luxurious vehicles similar in vein to those from Rolls-Royce and Bugatti at the time. However, the company went dormant in 1968 and was almost revived first in 2000 with the launch of the HS21 supercar, which was followed a year later by the HS21-GTS.

    That rear end is reminiscent of a Chrysler Crossfire. I’m not saying it’s bad… or good, just saying.

    Let’s hope the Spanish company prevails, because this “design” is an insult to the Hispano Suiza name…

    Kinda looks like the upcoming C8 body lines.

  • The front doesn’t have the elegance of Hispano-Suiza. And I thought they want to make an electric car. Sounds like we had another R8/Huracan rebodied all over again.
