Hyundai HND-9 Concept. Will be at the 2013 Seoul Motor Show

It seems that Hyundai saved a surprise for this year's Seoul Motor Show in the form of the HND-9 concept. A vehicle that aims to be a hint at the brand's next-generation luxury sports coupe design and also represents an evolution of the "fluidic" sculpture design philosophy used by the South Korean company.

The replacement of the Genesis coupe, which is also the ninth concept developed by Hyundai's Research and Development Center in Namyang, Korea, is described as "a modern reinterpretation of the elegant image of a classic premium sports coupe" thanks to the long hood and wheelbase, besides the wide hexagonal-shaped radiator grille and butterfly doors that probably won't make it to production.

The rear wheel-drive concept comes equipped with a 3.3 liter V6 turbo GDi engine producing 370PS and an automatic eight-speed transmission.
