So far, the Hartung Sparta Nature is the only car manufactured in Andorra. It was created in 1976 by Helmut Hartung, a German resident of Encamp in Andorra. This car, with an unfortunate fate, is probably the most powerful in the world. There are different prototype versions of the Hartung Sparta Nature, which have always maintained the basic premise of the creator: to make a “super sports car” that pollutes less than any known “super sports car”! This is thanks to a turbodi-gas engine of 1,360 hp, a V8 and 6.6 liters of cylinder, which can calmly reach 300 km/h. It looks rustic, with a stainless steel tube frame and an aluminum sheet body. The wheels, equipped with independent air suspensions, are mounted on 18-inch titanium wheels of clean design, making them the ideal way to overcome any obstacle on unstable terrain. The cabin can accommodate three adult passengers. The driver drives the vehicle from the centre of the cab and is separated from the two companions by two moving armrests. Like any good futuristic car, it has three doors. The two front doors, made of Plexiglas, open upwards, like the wings of a seagull, by a pneumatic mechanism. Removable, they can be stored at the front In 2020 a smaller sheet size than today is put in place, with the idea of embellishing the contours of the sheets.

For this stamp the leaves contain 15 stamps, the outline is embellished with front, rear and profile view of the car, its license plate and its tubular chassis.

This stamp is only valid from the Principality of Andorra.
