We'll see in the spring of next year.
Giorgetto and Fabrizio Giugiaro, the founders of Hyundai and Italian design firm GFG Style, announced that the 1974 Pony Coupe Concept, one of the most important cars in the history of the Korean brand, will come to life again.
We would like to point out that this concept, penned by Giorgetto Giugiaro for Hyundai, pioneered the Pony car series sold from 1975 to 1990, so to speak. And even Giugiaro took inspiration from the Pony Coupe Concept for the DeLorean DMC12. The master is now returning to the field to re-live the legendary collaboration we talked about with Hyundai and GFG Style. The concept car, which will be rebuilt, will be shown in the spring of 2023.
Fabrizio Giugiaro said, "At the beginning of my career, when I was a young designer, I designed the Hyundai Pony. I was extremely proud to be responsible for creating a vehicle for a company and country that is about to enter a highly competitive global market. and I am very honored that he has asked me to rebuild it as a celebration of the legacy of the brand." used the phrases.
Hyundai's revival of such old concepts is actually nothing new. When the dates showed 2019, Hyundai introduced 45 Concept Cars, and even this had a great impact on the design of the Ioniq 5 EV.
By 2021, Hyundai had restored a Pony and turned it into a one-off EV concept. In the current year, the brand introduced a completely different concept inspired by the Pony, with the N Vision 74 hydrogen hybrid.
As we come to the end of our news, we would like to point out that for now, Giorgetto Giugiaro and GFG Style have not made any detailed statements about the concept. SangYup Lee, President and Vice President of Hyundai Motor's Global Design Center, stated that the philosophy of "Shaping the future with heritage" will be used in the design of the concept.
