Unique Tailormade

Design

The Carmen’s highly emotive and striking design perfectly balances aggressive sportiness and timeless elegance.

Hispano Suiza Design

The Carmen’s style is heavily influenced by the original Hispano Suiza cars of the early 20th century – specifically the 1938 Hispano Suiza Dubonnet Xenia, of which only one was ever produced. The Dubonnet Xenia’s aerodynamic shape and eye-catching design were the work of the car’s owner, the WW1 fighter pilot André Dubonnet.

The Carmen encapsulates the brand’s heritage of elegant design into a modern-day carbon fibre bodied ‘hyperlux’ car. The bespoke interior exhibits a style inspired by the interiors of the most luxurious Hispano Suiza models from the past. The exquisite two-seater cabin exudes refinement and opulence, perfectly complementing the car’s effortless performance.

«With the sporty and elegant design of the Carmen, we have successfully translated the DNA of the Hispano Suiza brand into a modern day hyperlux car.»

Luxury

The very finest materials have been curated from across Spain and around the world to ensure the ultimate luxury motoring experience.

The Carmen’s passenger cabin is a meticulously designed combination of classic design features from the first chapter of Hispano Suiza’s story, and modern, advanced technology to deliver extraordinary luxury, comfort and refinement.

Inside the car is a combination of the finest leather and Alcantara that is used to trim the heated, four-way power-adjustable, hand-sewn seats.

With a focus on the ultimate ownership experience, each Carmen owner can specify a custom-scented interior to ensure the car offers a supremely personal and sumptuous environment. Artisan craftsmanship is apparent throughout the interior, and the car retains a direct lineage to the brand’s history. For example, the dashboard reflects the characteristics of the Carmen’s predecessors, with a traditional style using real wood veneers and high-grade mechanized aluminium, perforated by an authentic toggle switchgear.

The classic clockface at the centre of the dashboard features a Swiss mechanism designed and developed by a Spanish watchmaking firm. It echoes the position and status of the timepieces that featured in the brand’s earlier cars.

Similarly, the triangular gear selector is a direct reference to the art deco steel triangle that featured on the dashboard of earlier Hispano Suiza models.
