It seems that the South Korean company Hyundai Motor still needs qualified personnel who would help bring to the “mind” sports models of the brand. Koreans strengthened the staff of their engineers with a specialist who led the creation of Ford sports cars.

According to the portal Autocar, Tyrone Johnson, the former chief engineer of the Ford RS division, who prepared the fastest modifications of American-made cars, joined Hyundai. Interestingly, in the new post he will replace Albert Birmann, whom the leadership of the South Korean brand has promoted to head of the research department of the brand. Before Hyundai, he worked in the M division at BMW.

Hyundai in recent times increasingly entices renowned European leaders. Earlier, Luke Donkervolke, former chief designer of Bentley, joined the brand. Obviously, the company is going to impose a battle on competitors not only in the segment of fast popular models, but also among premium models with the Genesis brand.
