Hyundai showed the exterior and interior of the stylish Pony restomodMay 2, 2021
Hyundai has unveiled more details and additional artwork for one of the year’s most amazing show cars, the Pony restomod.
It’s not every day that you see a car manufacturer actually go back to one of their older models and make it very meticulously altered, but that’s exactly what Hyundai did with the first generation Pony.
The Pony was designed by renowned Italian automotive designer Giorgetto Giugiaro and was the company’s first mass-produced and exported model to become one of Hyundai’s most iconic models.
The show car is finished in matte silver paint and has a pair of fender-mounted cameras disguised as side mirrors. The highlight, however, is the lighting. The front and rear lights have been replaced with modern pixel-pattern LED units similar to those found on the Ioniq 5. The car also features large wheels that are also retro-styled.
The most impressive details are found inside, where Hyundai designers have added many modern touches as well as more high-quality materials to create a sophisticated interior. The doors are finished in leather and aluminum, the seats are fully custom made, and the dashboard has an impressive gauge made of vacuum tubes that glow.
Other notable features include a “digital touch-screen transmission selector,” and the trunk has a “last mile mobility device,” which is likely the company’s stainless steel foldable electric scooter.
As previously reported by AutoTimesNews, the Pony restomod has become a kind of tribute to the car, thanks to which the company began its global expansion 45 years ago. The model was produced by the company in various modifications from 1975 to 1990.
The unique concept is made in a single copy. It was on display at Hyundai Motorstudio in Busan, where it will be on display at Reflections in Motion until June 27 this year.
