2014 Geneva Preview: Hyundai PassoCorto Concept by IED

Article by Christian Andrei, on February 21, 2014

As you may know already, IED a.k.a. the Italian design school dedicated its work to Italian brands but it appears that this has changed and the students created the impressive Hyundai FDI PassoCorte Concept.

The name of the concept car comes from ‘short wheelbase’ in Italian and was commissioned by Hyundai Design Center Europe as a rival to the recently introduced Alfa Romeo 4C sports car.

Hyundai PassoCorto is a mid-engined, two-seater sports car that has a length of 4,100 mm, a width of 1,880 mm, a height of 1,160 mm and a 2,450 mm wheelbase.

Using a carbon fiber monocoque chassis and with a total weight of just 840 kg (1,852 lbs), the PassoCorto Concept is powered by the same engine found on the Veloster Turbo, which means it has a 1.6-liter four-cylinder twin-turbo engine that delivers 270 hp (201 kW).

Still, IED didn’t tell us anything regarding the performance figures.
