The Miata-based Hortan Grand Albaicin gains the 30th Anniversary Edition

This year, the Spanish vehicle maker Hurtan celebrated its 30th anniversary, thus revealing a special edition of the Grand Albaycín in limited production of six units. The car is based on the Mazda MX-5 ND, combining tried-and-tested underpinnings with retro-flavored bodywork and a reupholstered cabin.

The Hurtan Grand Albaycín 30th Anniversary Edition is based on the regular model introduced in 2021. There are no styling changes to the bodywork, which is inspired by the cars of the 50s and 60s. The model immediately stands out thanks to the bulging fenders, old-school grille and round LED light units, although from some angles the proportions are quite strange.

For the Six Anniversary models, Hurtan offers even more customization options. The color palette includes three shades – midnight blue, cherry red, and lead grey. It can be combined with two different interiors. From press shots, we can see that they have wood or metal interior accents, while both feature quilted leather upholstery and a special 30th Anniversary badge on the headrests. Owners of special models will also be given a photo book attesting to their authenticity. Finally, they will automatically be part of the “Hurtan Exclusive Club” just like any other Grand Albaycín owner, participating in meetings, gatherings and events.

Just like the regular Hurtan Grand Albaycín, the 30th Anniversary Edition is offered in Cabrio and Targa bodywork with the latter featuring a retractable hardtop from the Mazda MX-5 RF. Under the hood is either the Mazda’s 1.5-liter engine producing 130 PS (97 kW/132 PS), or the more powerful 2.0-L engine producing 181 PS (135 kW/184 PS).

Hurtan hasn’t announced pricing for the special edition though we expect it to be more expensive than the regular retail at anywhere between €59,000 ($61,430) and €82,300 ($85,691) depending on the configuration. That’s a far cry from the Mazda MX-5 ND that can be had for less than half the Hurtan’s base price.

On its 30th birthday this year, the vehicle maker is gearing up for a “major anniversary event” for all Hurtan owners where it will announce its future plans that promise to be “full of big surprises.” Is there another model on the horizon? Keep in mind that the Granada-based company was founded in 1992, when Juan Hurtado built the first model, the Hurtan T2.
