Geneva launch for Spanish firm's R8-based Suiza
2 March 2010

Spanish firm Hispano has shown off this reskinned Audi R8 V10 at the Geneva motor show.

The Hispano Suiza uses the R8 V10’s 5.2-litre engine, but it has been tuned to produce 592bhp. The firm has also added a 149bhp electric motor, to give the Suiza a combined power output of 741bhp.

Hispano claims the Suiza can also run on electric power alone over small distances.

Its 0-60mph time is claimed to be just 3.4sec and it can reach a top speed of more than 200mph.

Ha, ha, ha... ha... ha, ha, ha, ha, ha... ha... sorry... ha, ha... I was gong to write a disparaging comment... ha... ha, ha... but I can't stop laughing... ha, ha, ha... a car made by blind people... ha, ha, ha... for blind people... ha, ha, ha...

Perhaps some wood veneer on the bodywork would give it that tradiational Hispano look?

Christ knows why this incites such mirthful and witty mockery when the Pagani Zonda doesn't.

I like the look of it. Looks much nicer than the supercars that Nissan and Lexus have designed recently

26 February 2010

Oh come on!,the Zonda at least looks like it was designed by adults and is far more balanced looking car visually,the Hispano is like a fourth formers wet car dream!, it looks like one car grafted onto another and as a result the mockery on this blog is justfied, sorry and all that, but it's a real minger!

whoarr, we're getting them all today. First the Mugen Honda CZ-R and now this! I thought the Spanish had style.

Another attempt at reviving a famous name that probably won't get beyond the concept stage.

This has got to be one of the most stunning and innovative cars of the year!

What a great idea to take an existing car with proven engineering,make it even more powerful and give it a futuristic body style.

It looks stunning and I can only urge people to try and see it "in the flesh" as the photographs do not do it justice ! Well done Hispano Suiza and I want one !
