Spanish coachbuilder Hurtan is celebrating its Thirtieth anniversary this 12 months, thus they revealed a particular version of the Grand Albaycín with a restricted manufacturing of six models. The roadster relies on the Mazda MX-5 ND, combining the tried-and-tested underpinnings with a retro-flavored bodywork and a reupholstered cabin.
The Hurtan Grand Albaycín Thirtieth Anniversary Version builds on the common mannequin that was launched in 2021. There are not any styling modifications on the bodywork which was impressed by automobiles of the ’50s and the ’60s. The mannequin instantly stands out due to the bulged fenders, the old-school grille, and the spherical LED lighting models, though the proportions are fairly bizarre from some angles.
For the six anniversary fashions, Hurtan is providing extra customization choices. The colour palette consists of three shades – midnight blue, cherry pink, and lead gray. These may be mixed with two completely different inside trims. From the press pictures, we will see they’ve wooden or steel inside accents, whereas each of them function quilted leather-based upholstery and a particular Thirtieth-anniversary badge on the headrests. Homeowners of the particular fashions may even get a photograph ebook certifying their authenticity. Lastly, they’ll routinely be a part of the “unique Hurtan Membership” identical to each different Grand Albaycín proprietor, collaborating in conferences, rallies, and occasions.
Similar to the common Hurtan Grand Albaycín, the Thirtieth Anniversary Version is obtainable in Cabrio and Targa bodystyles with the latter that includes the retractable steel roof of the Mazda MX-5 RF. Beneath the bonnet, there may be both Mazda’s 1.5-liter engine producing 130 hp (97 kW / 132 PS), or the extra highly effective 2.0-liter engine producing 181 hp (135 kW / 184 PS).
Hurtan didn’t announce pricing for the particular version though we count on it to be costlier than the common mannequin retailing wherever between €59,000 ($61,430) and €82,300 ($85,691) relying on the configuration. It is a far cry from the Mazda MX-5 ND which may be had for lower than half the bottom value of a Hurtan.
For its Thirtieth birthday this 12 months, the coachbuilder is getting ready a “main anniversary occasion” for all Hurtan house owners the place it can announce its future plans promised to be “full of huge surprises”. Is there one other mannequin on the horizon? Thoughts you, the Granada-based firm was based in 1992, when Juan Hurtado constructed the primary mannequin, the Hurtan T2.
