Genesis recently unveiled the GV80 Coupe Concept at an exclusive event at Genesis House New York. Inspired by the X Speedium Coupe Concept unveiled in New York last year, the GV80 Coupe Concept combines the practicality of a lifestyle-oriented SUV with the dynamism of a sports car.
The GV80 Coupe Concept’s front fascia sports the Double G-Matrix Patterned Crest Grille surrounded by the quad lights, which have evolved from multi-lens array technology to seamless light performance. Cooling is optimised by four slots within the bumper that reduce shadowed thermal flow.
Genesis’ rear-wheel-drive platform provides the basis for the GV80 Coupe Concept’s long bonnet and generous dash-to-axle proportions. The front fender wears the ‘Designed by Genesis’ plaque that highlights the exclusive character of Genesis models while the five-spoke forged aluminum wheels and the carbon fiber roof – which contributes to the GV80 Coupe Concept’s dynamic driving qualities by lowering the center of gravity and reducing weight – emphasise the vehicle’s sporty character.
The vehicle’s optimised aerodynamic fluidity is complemented by an upper rear spoiler and spoiler lip on the elliptical concave ducktail, which provides increased downforce at speed. The model’s Magma exterior colour, on the other hand, was inspired by the brand’s Distinctly Korean ethos.
