Despite the teaser image and video clip leaving almost everything to the imagination, we can see that the concept features a sleek design with sporty cues such as honeycomb vents to the rear of the wheel arch, horizontal lights, a large grille to the front end and an oval-shaped steering wheel inside.

Specification and engine options will be announced after the car’s official reveal.

Ex Lamborghini boss Manfred Fitzgerald was appointed head of brand at Genesis in December 2015. He said: “The New York Concept is a progressive concept car that showcases the design quality of the brand. With its expressive volumes and refined design, the model truly embodies the athletic elegance, which characterises Genesis products.”
