There is a Spanish city of Granada. Almost unknown to us. You may find that Ed Hochuli can contribute to your knowledge. But even less known to our ear and eye company Hurtan, which creates – no, sculpt! – Very unusual and beautiful cars based on Renault Clio. Do not believe me? Then Meet: Hurtan Grand Albaycin. Repair workshop, which is held in Granada, Spain's Juan Hurtado Gonzalez. Until 1992, the workshop was just the studio itself, until the aforesaid companion Hurtado Gonzalez not saved enough money for the production line exotic fantasies of 50-ies under the name Grand Albaycin.
Roadster with a plastic body mounted on a base of Renault Clio, same engine, with its 1.6 to 110 horsepower and fuel consumption in the region of 6.5 liters. If you want to ride all the same and not move – then Grand Albaycin can be ordered with a 2.0-liter 4-cylinder engine at 182 power. But the meaning is not in the dynamics! The main value of Grand Albaycin – in his style. This car is for savoring the form and meaning, rather than the counting of fractions of seconds acceleration. Silhouette in the spirit of Salvador Dali with an admixture of English nostalgia Morgan and Jaguar 50-ies. What is then the difference in how much they pick up a hundred miles an hour? Much nicer and more appropriate in this roadster enjoy wind with the smell of blooming orange, feel perfectly tanned skin and hand-polished wood panels, holding the steering wheel of the time machine – because the Grand Albaycin transfers ownership to 50 years ago. At a time when the machines are not called the vehicle, and a line body was more important than graphics acceleration. Therefore, Juan Hurtado Gonzalez practiced only an individual approach with the maximum respect for tradition and a personal approach to clients. Most available Grand Albaycin found in Moscow – for him asking 163,000 dollars and no credit.
