Swiss engineering is impeccable. Peculiarly though, the country does not host a robust motor manufacturing industry.What the Swiss do have, is a scattering of niche specialists who build some of the world’s most exotic and exquisitely crafted cars. The latest low-volume manufacturer to show off its Swiss skill is the Helvetic Motor Company (HMC) based in Schweiz.Staffed by a collection of former F1 technical personnel, it is quite surprising to find HMC’s debut Hidalgo offering being a very retro-styled design.The Hidalgo looks like a miniature Bugatti Atlantic. If you love your cars with a 1930s feel and contemporary German engineering features, HMC's Hidalgo is sure to appeal.Hidden beneath the curvaceous bodywork is a Mercedes-Benz SLK55 chassis and drivetrain. All-wheel independent suspension and Affalterbach’s naturally aspirated 265kW 5.5l V8 should ensure a blend of dynamic ability commensurate to the Hidalgo’s outlandish looks.If those BMW V8-powered Morgans are simply on the wrong side of the German powertrain brand divide for your loyalties, this AMG-powered HMC Hidalgo is a choice alternative.Exclusively is guaranteed too. Production volumes are to be kept extremely low, with HMC producing no more than five cars per year. This is hardly surprising, as the $410 000 price will only be justifiable to a (small) collection of (very) discerning customers. Which is better? HMC's Hidalgo or Morgan's Aero?
