March 21, 2013 – Hyundai Motor Company, the fastest-growing car manufacturer by brand, today unveiled exterior renderings of the ‘HND-9’, its latest luxury sports coupe concept.

Fluidic yet sleek character lines that stretch from headlamp to trunk, voluminous, powerful car body and a striking, wide hexagonal-shaped radiator grille underscore the high performance image of the concept.
Furthermore, butterfly doors, spiral-shaped lines connected to the headlamp, softly glistening silver coating, dual twin exhaust and uniquely designed head and rear lamps give the car a sleek futuristic look.
As a rear-wheel drive, high-performance sports coupe concept, HND-9 is equipped with 3.3-litre turbo GDi petrol engine and eight-speed auto transmission, delivering maximum output of 370ps.
The HND-9 is set to make its world debut during Hyundai’s press conference on 28 March at the 2013 Seoul Motor Show. More details of the concept’s design and its cutting-edge technologies will be revealed at the show.
