It’s Funky Looking and Powerful
The car you see in the photos here is the Magurai HS1 GTC from Hispano Suiza Manufaktur AG. This is not to be confused with the Hispano Suiza car that was teased not long ago. Apparently, that’s a different company, and both claim to have the rights to the Hispano Suiza name. As Carscoops points out, the chances of a lawsuit between the companies is very likely.
Setting aside the issue with the company naming rights, the Magurai HS1 GTC appears to be a seriously crazy car. It looks like a mashup of several different sports car, luxury car, and supercar manufacturers styling. There are hints of Lamborghini in the rear of the vehicle, the curves down the side remind me vaguely of McLaren’s vehicles, and I even see hints of Cadillac and Genesis here. Maybe I need my eyes checked, though.
Anyhow, the Magurai HS1 GTC features a V10 engine the supposedly comes from the Lamborghini Huracan. The company then took that massive engine and added two electric compressors, according to Carscoops. The result? A whopping 1070 hp. The car can reportedly hit 62 mph from a standstill in just 2.8 seconds, too. Need to go faster? No worries. The Magurai HS1 GTC has a blisteringly fast top speed of 236 mph. That’s not bad for a car named after something as bland as a South American stork.
We’re looking forward to getting more information about this car, and will keep an eye out for any additional info about the likely upcoming lawsuit between Hispano Suiza Manufaktur AG and Hispano Suiza Cars.
