Sixteen students at the Istituto Europeo di Design, in Turin, Italy, helped design this concept in collaboration with Hyundai. The full-scale model debuted at the Geneva auto show in March. Hyundai wanted the students to create a tribute to Italian sports cars that would appeal to millennials. They designed it to be lightweight, relying in part on a chassis made of a carbon-fiber monocoque, or shell.
