Hispano Suiza pays homage to its past at Geneva

10 February 2020

Hispano Suiza, the historic Spanish brand that was founded in 1904, will be making a reappearance at the forthcoming Geneva Show on 3-15 March with the Carmen Boulogne, a version of its fully-electric Carmen hyperlux grand tourer that pays homage to the brand’s competition heritage.

The Boulogne moniker dates back to 1921 and the George Boillot Cup, in which Hispano Suiza competed with five enhanced versions of the company’s H6 Coupé. The endurance race saw competitors battle for victory for more than 3.5 hours, on the roads around the French town of Boulogne. Hispano Suiza achieved three consecutive race wins, with drivers André Dubonnet (1921), Paul Bablot (1922) and Léonce Garnier (1923) driving specially modified versions of the Hispano Suiza H6.

Development and build of the infinitely customisable Boulogne version of the Carmen will be led by QEV Technologies, the company’s production partner. Also based in Barcelona, it boasts a team of highly-skilled engineers with experience across design, engineering, R&D and production for Formula-E teams, supercar brands and mainstream car manufacturers.
