In collaboration with RIDES and 0-60 magazines, Hyundai is introducing a special “supercar-inspired” version of the Sonata 2.0 Turbo. The car will be unveiled at the next SEMA show, and it uses cues from some of the famous supercars as well as modified vehicles. On the outside they say they’ve been inspired by Mercedes CLS Rocket sport coupe, and for the interior, they’ve modeled it base don Ferrari F430.
As key elements, the Sonata supercar features 20-inch concave monobloc wheels, matte pearl white paint and a slew of carbon fiber components including the roof, grill, interior trim, side mirrors and rear diffuser, as well as LED fog lamps integrated in to the bumper.
The cabin is garnished with stitched leather throughout and carbon fiber trim accents. The performance is tweaked a bit too, including turbo and intake enhancements, and a quad tip dual exhaust.
“The Sonata Turbo is an ideal platform for us to bridge the worlds of performance, aesthetics, luxury, technology and style,” said Ben Harris, executive publisher, RIDES and 0-60 magazines. “The design we’ve chosen will accentuate the car’s lines and style, using influences from exotic supercars.”
