Hyundai Motor Company today staged a world-premiere of the HND-9, its latest luxury sports coupe concept that illustrates the company’s future design direction.

The HND-9 is the ninth concept model developed by the Hyundai Motor Group’s R&D Centre in Namyang, Korea. Based on a modern reinterpretation of an elegant, classic premium sports coupe, sophisticated details in every design element of the car reinforce a premium look. The vehicle, with its dramatic, long hood and wheelbase, has an overall length of 4,695mm, width of 1,890mm and height of 1,340mm with a 2,860mm wheelbase.

Equipped with 3.3 litre turbo GDi engine mated to an 8-speed automatic transmission, HND-9 delivers a maximum output of 270 kW, while its exterior design exudes a befitting image of the powerful performance.

Fluidic yet sleek character lines that stretch from headlamp to trunk, voluminous, powerful car body and a striking, wide hexagonal-shaped radiator grille enhance the vehicle’s high performance image.

Moreover, butterfly doors, sculptural rear combination lamps, and dual tailpipes placed on both sides, give the car a sleek, futuristic look. Twenty-two inch alloy wheels – mixed with carbon materials - also contribute to great styling, while lowering its weight.

The seats are made of sporty yet luxurious mesh, and depending on which angle they are seen from, they project different colours, exuding elegance and mystique. The driver-oriented, high-tech interface is modelled after a cockpit, offering both improved functionality and aesthetics, optimized for dynamic driving.

The next generation Genesis coupe, which will draw on technical and stylistic elements from the HND-9, has been confirmed for the Australian market but timing has yet to be announced.
