Hispano Suiza bringing 750 HP bespoke model based on Audi R8 V10 to Geneva – rpmGo.com

Hispano Suiza, in case you haven’t heard, was a Spanish automaker specializing in bespoke products before the World War II. The name has been recently dug up by another company, which is preparing to make it famous once more.

How will it do such a thing? With a 750 HP customized Audi R8 V10. It seems that the company went to work quite seriously on the R8, adding a supercharger and many other modifications. The result? 750 HP propelling the German-born Spanish project from 0 to 62 mph in 3.4 seconds and up to 205 mph.

That’s not all, as besides the redesigned model, which you can see above and below, there are also a few rumors concerning the possibility of a hybrid powertrain. This means that the V10 engine might see the addition of a 150 HP electric motor, enabling it to go on EV mode for a specific distance.

We’re not so sure about the hybrid talks, but the renders seen above are very attractive, so we need to wait until next week to see what Hispano Suiza brings to the Geneva Motor Show.
