Obviously no shrinking violet, he has ordered the car in a shade of purple to match his McLaren 720S and Rolls-Royce Dawn. Copper accents feature on the front grille, wing mirrors, window trim, and wheels. The white leather interior also has splashes of purple—including the carbon-fiber steering wheel.
Fux says: “I love colors that lift you up and give you a feeling of elation. When you see it, the Carmen Boulogne is undoubtedly a ‘wow’ car. It is retro and romantic, and you can’t avoid looking at it.”
The all-carbon Carmen Boulogne is designed and made in Barcelona and has twin electric motors sending 1100 hp to the rear wheels. An 80-kWh battery provides a range of over 250 miles and a claimed sub-two-second 0–60 mph time. Top speed is limited to 155 mph.
Only five Carmen Boulognes will be built at almost $2 million apiece, so Fux’s car may well be the only one to reach the U.S.
