Considered a fast luxury car, it was closely patterned on the Hispano and offered in two models. One had a 3104cc four-cylinder engine while the other had a 4521cc six-cylinder engine.

Soon after the inception of the Abadal line, the Belgian company Imp?ria began building Abadals under license as Imp?ria-Abadals. In 1916 Abadal acquired the Buick agency, and Barcelona-built Abadals after that year had Buick power units, and featured custom coachwork. These cars were called Abadal-Buicks. M. A. Van Roggen (formerly of Springuel) took over the Belgian operation soon after, and built around 170 more Imp?ria-Abadals. Among the models produced were a 2992cc 16-valve four-cylinder ohc sports model and three prototype 5630cc straight-eights. The company ceased automobile production in 1923.

Francisco Abadal (nicknamed Paco) was a Hispano-Suiza salesman and racing driver in Barcelona. He began this enterprise in 1912, and upon its ceasation, F. Abadal became an agent of General Motors in Spain. General Motors plans in 1930 related to a prototype named Abadal Continental never materialized.

Sure is a legendary car. So Buick was acquired by this car company. They must have continued creating cars.
