Not. These trains (class 120) can reach 250 kph, but they can run on UIC-gauge tracks and on Iberic-gauge tracks. That's their advantage.

Trains that can reach 350 kph are:
Class 103 "Velaro" ot "The Dolphin". Manufactured by Siemens. It's being testing, not yet into commercial service. It has reached 403,7 kph in tests with a conventional unit (not modified).




Class 102 "The Duck". Manufactured by Talgo and Bombardier. It can reach 350 kph, but it has been homologated only for 330 kph.

The Siemens and the Talgo trains posted above your post will eventually do the 700 km in 2.5 hours or less.

The amount of EU funds used to finance HST in Spain would barely cover the cost of the HST Madrid-Barcelona-French Border.

Cohesion funds have been a boost for HST development in Spain, for sure, but are just a tiny part of a huge financial effort made by a country, let´s remember, that has been succesful - at the same time - to keep its macroeconomic figures - public debt & deficit - in a much healthier status than almost any other country in the EU.

It´s all about been comitted.

Yes, it was tested without final colours and without seats.
