“The carbon-fibre Carmen has been designed and built on the F1 circuit’s fringe in collaboration with QEV Technologies, whose EV qualifications include running Formula E teams. For now, Hispano Suiza is being funded wholly by the Suqué Mateu family, whose interests include wineries, casino resorts, industrial packaging and real estate.
