Hyundai PassoCarto Coupe Concept revealed

The collaboration between the European Design Institute’s (IED) Torino school and Hyundai Design Center Europe has resulted in the creation of what is called the Hyundai PassoCarto Concept. The two-seater sportscar concept will be officially presented to the public at the upcoming 2014 Geneva Motor Show. 

The brief given by Hyundai to sixteen design students from the Masters in Transportation Design class at IED was to design a vehicle for young and connected Y buyers. What the talented young guns came up with is stunning looking twin-turbocharged 199kW 1.6-litre four-cylinder PassoCorto Concept. The students worked under the supervision of Masters course co-ordinator and Pinninfarina’s lead designer Luca Borgogno. All the students submitted design proposals, and the two that were judged to best fit the brief were merged together in a 70:30 blend. The class then worked to develop a full scale model of the design sketch, which will take its first public bow next week. 

The two-seater mid-engined sportscar concept is 4,100mm long, 1,880mm wide and 1,160mm tall and rides on a 2,450mm wheelbase. Hyundai says that the concept provides a vision on how a future lightweight Hyundai sports car might look. The Hyundai PassoCorto Concept also sees the IED school celebrate the 20th year of its famous transportation design course and 25 years of activity in the field of automotive design.
