Hyundai Design & Styling
The car also has something of a futuristic look, thanks in large part to the butterfly doors, sculptural rear combination lamps, and dual tailpipes placed on both sides.
The perfect styling is completed with the addition of 22-inch ally wheels, which have been mixed with carbon materials to help keep the weight down.
Just as on the outside, the interior of the HND-9 has a modern, luxurious appeal to it. Three definite concepts were used to deliver that amazing interior: spiral sculpture, elegance, and high-tech interface.
The spiral sculpture concept is almost directly born from Hyundai’s Fluidic Sculpture design philosophy. The use of dynamic spiral shapes throughout the interior create a unique layout that defines speed and rhythm.
A sporty yet luxurious mesh fabric was used to make the seats. What is cool about that design is that the colors seem to change depending on the angle in which the fabric is viewed.
The driver-friendly interface has elements of a flight cockpit, and delivers all new levels of functionality and aesthetically pleasing design.
HND-9 Launch Date
Hyundai does not plan to launch the HND-9 in its current concept form. The carmaker does, however, state, that their latest coupe concept hints at the 2014 Genesis Coupe, which is expected to be unveiled next year!
