Hyundai has unveiled the “Vision G” Coupe Concept to a small group of journalists at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art (LACMA). The concept has been defined by the company as the inspiration for its family of future premium products. It incorporates luxury, performance and style.
“The concept was designed with coordinated input from Hyundai design studios around the world, but was led by our team here in the U.S.,” said Peter Schreyer, Hyundai’s President and Chief Design Officer.
He further added: “The design is our interpretation of the idea that Hyundai breathes into all of its vehicles – a DNA that balances design and performance with the idea that you don’t need to be over the top in terms of glitz and stereotypical luxury cues.”
The concept car has been given a tasteful design with dramatic lines, a high-beltline and a long hood. The cabin is underscored by its clarity and simplicity. There are no glaring examples of luxury but the interior features elegant lines and finishes. Moreover, although it is unlikely the feature will be seen in the company’s near-future production cars, the Vision G Coupe Concept has doors that open automatically.
“In keeping with a design that speaks to the owner rather than ‘the spectators’ who might see the car on the road, Vision G appears dynamic and in constant motion,” said Christopher Chapman, head of Hyundai’s U.S. design centre. “After all – and if all is right in the world – the only time an owner sees the exterior of the car is when it’s standing still.”
Under the hood, the Vision G Coupe Concept features a 5.0-litre naturally aspirated V8 petrol engine that produces 420 hp and 519 Nm of torque. The concept will be displayed at the 65th Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance also, on Sunday, August 16 in Monterey, California.
