The carbon-bodied supercar is a real head-turner.
Electric supercars like the Rimac C_Two are the in thing for the rich and famous, and there are more choices now than ever before. If the Rimac isn't to your liking, there's an alternative from Spain called the Hispano Suiza Carmen. This, however, is the more extreme Carmen Boulogne, and although we've seen it before, these new photos are worth a look as they give us a good idea of what the car might look like if you happen to have the extraordinarily good fortune to see one on a real road. Under natural light, it seems to highlight different features of its design, and none of them are bad.
Not only does the natural light seem to highlight the intricacy of the carbon fiber weave, it also shows the subtle curves in the bodywork a little better. There are also some indoor photos alongside the Carmen's forebear, showing just how different the new approach to performance is these days. Regardless of where the car is photographed, we're quite pleased with the more modern design compared to that seen when the car was first driven on the streets of Barcelona. Still, looks aren't everything, but whatever you think of the styling, the performance of this car certainly gets approval from everyone.
Thanks to a pair of electric motors on each rear wheel and a curb weight of under 3,600 pounds, the Carmen Boulogne produces an astonishing 1,100 horsepower and can reach a top speed of 180 mph. The benchmark sprint form 0-62 mph is dispatched in a scant and vomit-inducing 2.6 seconds. It should also have a range of around 250 miles, but we're pretty sure that anyone who can afford its €1.65 million ($2 million) asking price aren't too worried about that. With just five units of this special model being made, we're pretty sure that its value with skyrocket years from now.
