Its name was Pony Coupe Concept, and this particular prototype was the source of inspiration for the current Hyundai Ioniq line-up.

In order to celebrate its history, Hyundai has decided to come up with a special proposition. The manufacturer’s representantives went to Giugiaro and asked him to rebuild the 1974 Pony Coupe Concept.

“I designed the Hyundai Pony when I was still a young designer at the start of my career. I felt very proud that I was in charge of creating a vehicle for a company and country that was about to take on a fiercely competitive global market. Now, I’m deeply honored that Hyundai has asked me to rebuild it for posterity and as a celebration of the brand’s heritage,” said Giugiaro.
