As part of the opening of the annual 24-hour endurance race on the French circuit of Sarte, a demonstration race of unique hypercars was held, the total cost of which was more than $ 10 million. The electric hypercar Hispano Suiza Carmen led the “circle of honor”.

The Hispano Suiza Carmen electric hypercar debuted at the 2019 Geneva Motor Show. The vintage-styled carbon fiber rear-wheel drive coupe is powered by two electric motors and an 80-kilowatt battery. The total output of the power plant is 1019 horsepower. A coupe can travel up to 400 kilometers on a single battery charge. The hypercar accelerates to 100 km/h in less than three seconds. The maximum speed of the model is 250 kilometers per hour.

The Spanish brand plans to build only 19 examples of Carmen. The first electric hypercars were supposed to reach buyers last summer, but due to the coronavirus pandemic, the deliveries of the retro coupe had to be postponed. The cost of Hispano Suiza Carmen is one and a half million euros.

In addition to the Spanish coupe, Pagani Zonda LM, Huayra BC, Koenigsegg One: 1, as well as McLaren Senna in the GTR LM version and Ferrari Enzo performed at the French track. The total cost of the column of the rarest hypercars was more than $ 10 million.

In early March, the revived Spanish brand Hispano Suiza Fabrica de Automoviles revealed details about the power plant and dynamics of the “charged” version of the Carmen electric car – Boulogne. The carbon fiber retro coupe received a power plant with a return of 1114 horsepower.
