Spanish coachbuilder Hurtan is celebrating its Thirtieth anniversary this yr, 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 aren’t 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 purple, and lead gray. These could be mixed with two completely different inside trims. From the press photographs, we will see they’ve wooden or metallic inside accents, whereas each of them characteristic quilted leather-based upholstery and a particular Thirtieth-anniversary badge on the headrests. House owners of the particular fashions may even get a photograph e-book certifying their authenticity. Lastly, they are going to mechanically be a part of the “unique Hurtan Membership” identical to each different Grand Albaycín proprietor, collaborating in conferences, rallies, and occasions.
Identical to the common Hurtan Grand Albaycín, the Thirtieth Anniversary Version is obtainable in Cabrio and Targa bodystyles with the latter that includes the retractable metallic roof of the Mazda MX-5 RF. Underneath the bonnet, there’s 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 anticipate it to be dearer than the common mannequin retailing anyplace between €59,000 ($61,430) and €82,300 ($85,691) relying on the configuration. This can be a far cry from the Mazda MX-5 ND which could be had for lower than half the bottom value of a Hurtan.
For its Thirtieth birthday this yr, the coachbuilder is getting ready a “main anniversary occasion” for all Hurtan homeowners the place it can announce its future plans promised to be “full of massive surprises”.
