Much like "fetch," the rebirth of the Hispano Suiza is never going to happen. And even if it did, I’d really rather the revival didn’t sully the brand’s legacy with cars as ugly as the Carmen. Sure, there’s some impressive stats – it has 1,005 horsepower (749 kilowatts) and can travel 248 miles (399 kilometers) on a single charge. But frankly, it could cure cancer and solve climate change, and it’d still be too ugly to buy. Look at it! It’s like the designers thought, "Hey, that Audi from Will Smith’s terrible I, Robot movie looked pretty cool. How could we make it worse?" The Carmen is the answer to that question.
