Hispano Suiza V10 Supercharged, 2010. An attempt to recreate the prestigious Franco/Spanish brand, using an Audi R8 V10 as a basis, with a carbon-fibre body. The plan was to sell 20-25 cars a year. However Hispano Suiza Fábrica de Automóviles SA in Spain and SAFRAN SA in France – sole holders of the rights to the historic name and brand of “Hispano-Suiza” – affirmed they didn’t participate in the project nor they did the authorize the use of the brand “Hispano-Suiza”
