The Hispano Suiza brand

Between 1904 and 1946, Hispano Suiza built more than 12,000 luxury cars and 50,000 aeroplane engines.

Now reborn, the company has created the Carmen, which pioneers the ‘hyperlux’ segment through a unique blend of timeless design, exacting luxury, painstaking craftsmanship and scrupulous attention to technical and engineering details.

Hispano Suiza plans to become one of Europe’s most luxurious and exclusive car manufacturers, producing customisable luxury cars of the highest quality for the world’s most discerning motorists.

The brand is proud of its Spanish roots with its headquarters, technical centre, and manufacturing facility all based in Barcelona, and a direct family lineage tracing four generations to the founder Damián Mateu.

Mr Suqué Mateu has lived the Hispano Suiza brand for his entire life, and the production of the Carmen is the realisation of a lifelong ambition for him.

President of Hispano Suiza, is the great-grandson of the brand’s founder Damián Mateu.
