Hardly any vehicle is used as often as the basis for conversions as the small one Mazda MX-5. It does not matter if it is 1930s Alfa Romeo racing car, a pseudo-Aston Martin or a Bell-eyed Bugeye British Sports Car is, the MX-5 always has to serve. And now there is another modification. Curtain up for that Hurtan Grand Albaycin. And that's, well, it's just there. Whether he beautiful is, is probably in the eye of the beholder. In our opinion he just is very close on our Tuning fail category scratched past. But of course that's all a matter of taste. The idea behind the Grand Albaycin was to have a vehicle Retro look and modern technology to put on the street. But the idea is not new and so the speedster has to put up with it on vehicles like this BMW ETA 02 convertible or the MAG Motors GT500R Mustang to be measured. They also rely on "old-fashioned“Look.
Hurtan Grand Albaycin
And the builders of the ETA 02 and the GT500R somehow managed to better combine the retro look with modern technology. But this is only our humble opinion! The basis for the Albaycin conversion is a Miata MX-5 ND generation. Hurtan doesn't say which era of cars served as inspiration. But it will probably appear on various British roadsters of the late 50er-year run out in the form of the Bugeye British Sports Car & Co. linked at the beginning. The MX-5 got fat wheelhouses, a frog Face and a shiny one radiator grill im Austin Healey Sprite Style. And that, or maybe one MG A, one probably also had with sweeping stern in the head. Here we find the concept in combination with the 4-pipe sports exhaust system and the modern ones LED lights but quite convincing. Only the side view is effective, especially in combination with the two-tone paintwork, somewhat oddly proportioned.
Grand Albaycin is "powered by Mazda"
Under the hood, however, everything seems to be the same. The Grand Albaycin is "powered by Mazda" and with one 1,5 or 2,0 liter petrol engine with 132 or from 184 HP equipped. The official presentation is not until next Saturday (23.01.2021). Then there will be more pictures and a look at that too dashboard. So far there is only one official photo that is covered with leather Sports seats inklusive Hurtan lettering shows.
