The Hurtan Grand Albaycín 30th Anniversary Edition is based on the regular model introduced in 2021. There are no styling changes to the bodywork inspired by cars from the 50’s and his 60’s. This model is immediately noticeable thanks to its bulging fenders, old-fashioned grille and round LED lighting unit, but its proportions are quite odd at certain angles.
With the 6th Anniversary model, Hurtan offers even more customization options. The color palette features his three shades of midnight blue, cherry red, and lead gray. These can be combined with two different interior trims. Press shots reveal wood or metal interior accents, but both feature quilted leather upholstery and special his 30th anniversary badges on the headrests.
