Hispano Suiza, the historic Spanish coachbuilder has revealed its all-new supercar, the Maguari HS1 GTC. The supercar is named after a South American stork, the brand’s traditional emblem. Likewise, the Maguari’s distinctive carbon-fibre bodywork features various stork motifs, most notably in the form of a pointy mascot above the front splitter.
The Maguari gets a twin-turbo V10 engine complemented with two electric compressors derived from the Lamborghini Huracan. The setup produces 1070 BHP and the power is channeled to the rear wheels only. This helps the Maguari catapult from 0 to 100 km/hr in just 2.8 seconds while top speed is electronically limited to 379 km/hr.
Despite the brand’s 100-year history, Hispano Suiza remained dormant until recently. Earlier this month the Hispano Suiza Carmen electric grand tourer was teased ahead of its reveal at Geneva, drawing influence from the firm’s 1938 Dubonnet Xenia coupe. This has caused some dispute, however, as each of these two cars is being developed by different manufacturers, the Carmen by Hispano Suiza Cars, and the Maguari by Hispano Suiza Automobile Manufaktur AG, with both companies claiming to have rights to the historic name.
The Maguari HS1 GTC is currently in the final stages of development with its launch scheduled to take place later this year. Deliveries will begin by the end of 2019. It will setback a magnificent €2.2 Million for customers.
