Miata-Based Hurtan Grand Albaycin Wins 30th Anniversary Edition

Miata-Based Hurtan Grand Albaycin Wins 30th Anniversary Edition


Spanish coachbuilder Hurtan celebrates its 30th anniversary this year, so they unveiled a special edition of the Grand Albaycin with a limited production run of six units. The roadster is based on the Mazda MX-5 NDcombining the proven basics with retro bodywork and a reupholstered cabin.

The 30th Anniversary Edition of the Hurtan Grand Albaycín builds on the standard model introduced in 2021. There are no styling changes to the bodywork inspired by cars from the 50s and 60s. The model immediately stands out thanks to the bulging fenders , with the old-fashioned grille and round LED light units, although the proportions are quite odd from certain angles.

For all six anniversary models, Hurtan offers more customization options. The color palette includes three shades – midnight blue, cherry red and lead gray. These can be combined with two different interior trims. From the press photos, we can see they have either wood or metal interior accents, while both feature quilted leather upholstery and special 30th anniversary badging on the headrests. Owners of the special models will also receive a photo book certifying their authenticity. Finally, they will automatically be part of the “Exclusive Hurtan Club” like all other owners of the Grand Albaycín, participating in meetings, rallies and events.

Just like the usual Hurtan Grand Albaycin, the 30th Anniversary Edition is offered in both Cabrio and Targa bodies, the latter featuring the retractable metal roof of the Mazda MX-5 RF. Under the hood there is either Mazda 1.5 liter engine producing 130 hp (97 kW / 132 hp), or the more powerful 2.0 liter engine producing 181 hp (135 kW / 184 hp).

Hurtan hasn’t announced pricing for the Special Edition although we expect it to be more expensive than the standard model which retails for between €59,000 ($61,430) and €82,300 ($85,691) according to the configuration. That’s a far cry from the Mazda MX-5 ND that can be had for less than half the base price of a Hurtan.

For its 30th anniversary this year, the bodybuilder is preparing a “major anniversary event” for all Hurtan owners where it will announce its promised future plans “full of big surprises”. Is there another model on the horizon? Remember, the Granada-based company was founded in 1992, when Juan Hurtado built the first model, the Hurtan T2.
