This Hispano-Suiza Xenia Dubonnet poster is dedicated to one of the finest art deco examples
Hispano-Suiza was founded in 1904 by a Spanish businessman and a Swiss engineer. They build cars dedicated to rich and famous and the Spanish king Alfonso himself owned about 20 Hispano-Suiza cars. During WWI, the company made its living by building aircraft engines. They proved extremely successful and its aviation success influenced new car designs created by Hispano-Suiza after the war ending. The first such car was Hispano-Suiza H6 built between 1919 and 1933. The luxurious chassis had its sports version most notably piloted by Andre Dubonnet at Targa Florio and Boulogne races. Meanwhile, Hispano-Suiza H6 smashed eight international records, including 148 km/h average speed over 480 km distance at Brooklands.
Shift your focus to Andre Dubonnet. This is the man responsible for this particular one-off masterpiece of a car art like Hispano-Suiza Xenia Dubonnet. This rolling sculpture brings together avant-garde and aesthetics in one teardrop automotive shape. Andre Dubonnet, extremely gifted inventor ordered special Hispano-Suiza H6 chassis which aim is to display his new capsuled springs suspension. The body was ordered at Saoutchik`s coach building atelier and the accent was put on aerodynamics and aesthetics. He delivered as usual, creating one of the automotive art deco epitomes.
