Hispano Suiza Maguari HS1 GTC Boasts 1,070 HP, 236 MPH Top Speed

If you weren’t a fan of the retro-inspired Carmen by Hispano Suiza Cars, you’re in luck as Hispano Suiza Automobilmanufaktur AG unveiled their Maguari HS1 GTC.

Looking unlike any classic Hispano Suiza’s model, the Maguari HS1 GTC is an evolution of the previous Hispano Suiza concept that was introduced in 2010. Given the passage of time, it’s not surprising to learn the design has been extensively modified.

The biggest changes occur up front as the production model features a new bumper with larger air intakes and a Maguari sculpture protruding from the center. The car has also been equipped with new headlights, more dynamic bodywork and a more aggressive rear end.

Speaking of the latter, the Maguari HS1 GTC has a ventilated rear fascia which resides above a center-mounted diffuser and a four-tailpipe exhaust system. The car has also been equipped with 22- / 23-inch center locking wheels that are backed up by a carbon ceramic braking system.

Designers paid a lot of attention to weight, so the Maguari HS1 GTC rides on an aluminum space frame chassis which is wrapped in carbon fiber bodywork. Despite these efforts, the car is still a little hefty as it tips the scales at 3,924 lbs (1,780 kg).

Power comes from a twin-turbo 5.2-liter V10 engine that produces 1,070 hp (798 kW / 1,085 PS) and 774 lb-ft (1,050 Nm) of torque. It is connected to a seven-speed automatic transmission which sends power to the rear wheels. This enables the car to accelerate from 0-62 mph (0-100 km/h) in 2.8 seconds before hitting an electronically limited top speed of 236 mph (380 km/h).

Hispano Suiza plans to build 300 Maguari HS1 GTCs and the first ten units will be limited editions that come with gloves, shoes, luggage and a handbag that matches the car. Those are nice bonuses, but the model costs a staggering $2.5 (£1.9 / €2.2) million.
