Stork of discord: the Swiss Hispano Suiza Maguari HS1 GTS 2023 supercar is ready for production.

Swiss company Hispano Suiza Automobilmanufaktur AG has announced the start of production of the mid-engine supercar Maguari HS1 GTS equipped with a 1200 hp V10 gasoline engine.

300 units will be produced over the next six years.

The original Spanish company Hispano Suiza was founded in 1904 and successfully competed with Bentley, Bugatti, Maybach and Rolls-Royce before the Second World War, and today under the name Hispano Suiza there are two independent companies that can not share the legendary name.

The modern Spanish Hispano Suiza Cars was created in 2019 by Miguel Mateu, great-grandson of Damian Mateu, one of the co-founders of the early 20th century company of the same name.

Hispano Suiza Cars produces the Carmen electric hypercar, which premiered three years ago at the Geneva Motor Show.

Behind the Swiss company Hispano Suiza Automobilmanufaktur AG is the Austrian designer Erwin Leo Himmel, who worked at Audi in the 1990s. In 2010 Himmel acquired the rights to the Hispano Suiza brand and decided to enter the modern luxury-car market with it.

Speaking of the historical context, the company focuses on Mark Birkigt, the Swiss engineer and entrepreneur who had the idea for the original Hispano Suiza car company and who was essentially its chief engineer, while his Spanish partners were more responsible for finance and management.

Hispano Suiza Automobilmanufaktur AG showed the concept of a medium-engine supercar of its own design back in 2010, but only by 2019 the pre-production Maguari HS1 GTC, made using units and units of Audi R8.

After the premiere of the pre-production car, the Swiss company was silent for three years, and last February in the media there were reports about its bankruptcy.

In fact, it was not the Swiss company itself that went bankrupt, but its Austrian branch Hispano Suiza Engineering GmbH that supervised development of the supercar.

Initially it was planned to start production in 2020, but due to the COVID-19 pandemic the plans were broken, and the financial situation of the company was severely undermined.

Nevertheless, parent Hispano Suiza Automobilmanufaktur AG headquartered in Zug, Switzerland is still alive and this month announced the start of production of the long-build supercar, it will be set up at its own assembly site in Munich.

As Carscoops magazine specifies with reference to a company representative, assembly will start in April and closer to the end of the year the Swiss Hispano Suiza will be ready to show live cars at various public events, shipment to customers will begin in 2023.

The serial supercar, whose renders we bring to your attention, is called Maguari HS1 GTS, that is, compared with the pre-production car the last letter has been changed.

The key word Maguari remains the same and refers to the South African stork — the stork is the historical symbol of the brand Hispano Suiza.

The design of the car for three years has been adjusted on a nuanced level. The body (overall length — 5.1 m) has an aluminum power structure and exterior panels made of carbon fiber.

The engine is more powerful and seems to be a heavily modified 5.2-liter V10 atmospheric engine from Audi.

In the Maguari HS1 GTS the displacement is increased to 5.5 liters, and two turbochargers provided impressive output: 1200 hp at 8400 rpm and 1100 Nm at 6700 rpm.

The transmission is a seven-speed automatic «DCT» type (with two clutches), driving wheels — rear. Up to 100 km/h Maguari HS1 GTS accelerates in less than 2.8 seconds.

Maximum speed in theory is over 400 km/h, but in practice it is limited by electronics at the mark of 360 km/h.

The chassis claims some kind of active hybrid suspension and carbon ceramic brakes with 440 mm discs and six-piston calipers «around the circle».

Tire size is 285/35 ZR 22 in front and 335/30 ZR 23 in rear. Curb weight of the vehicle is 1890 kg.

The Swiss company does not name the price of the Maguari HS1 GTS, but three years ago it was reported that each car will cost at least 2.2 million euros.
