Dubonnet Xenia at the Mullin Automotive Museum

The Mullin Automotive Museum in California is informing us about its latest addition, the aerodynamic 1938 Hispano Suiza Dubonnet Xenia. This breathtaking work of art was conceptualized by Andre Dubonnet, heir to the Dubonnet aperitif business, successful race car driver and WWI fighter pilot.   Strikingly, the Xenia featured curved glass on all windows, a panoramic windscreen, gullwing windows and extraordinary ‘suicide’ doors. More than a design revolution, this vehicle has a remarkable history including its forced relocation and hiding during WWII and more recently, numerous ‘Best of Show’ honors at the leading automotive events in the world.
