Hyundai has revealed the HND-9 concept at the Seoul motor show. Its design themes will influence Hyundai's next coupé.

Described by Hyundai as a "modern reinterpretation of the classic premium sports coupé", the HND-9 has been designed at the firm's R&D Centre in Namyang, Korea.

The HND-9 uses Hyundai's 'fluidic sculpture' design language that has underpinned recent models such as the i40 and i30. It carries the hexagonal grille common in those models but is more sporting in the rest of its design. The HND-9 has pronounced character lines along its flanks, sleek headlights, twin exhausts and butterfly doors.

Hyundai's new concept is a rear-drive coupé like the current US market-only Hyundai Genesis. The HND-9 is powered by a 3.3-litre turbocharged V6 GDI engine that generates 365bhp, which is delivered via an eight-speed automatic gearbox.
