2012 SEMA Show: Hyundai JP Edition Veloster Concept

Article by Christian A., on October 31, 2012

This brilliant mint green Hyundai Veloster concept seen at the 2012 SEMA Show is known as the ultra-exclusive JP Edition Veloster concept. This is the product of the partnership between John Pangilinan, better known as “John P.” in the tuner business. The Mint Green exterior finish used on the concept is exclusively supplied by BASF.

John Pangilinan said that in building the JP Edition Veloster, they took inspiration from the Veloster’s distinct design cues.

They also sought to highlight its features with an “iris-warping” brilliant mint green exterior finish. He said that this JP Edition Veloster concept takes the production car into the category of ultra-exclusive tuner cars.

The concept is powered by a 1.6-liter, direct-injected Veloster engine and comes with an ARK performance exhaust.

Meanwhile, the suspension adds KW coilovers, Whiteline sway bars and anti-lift kit, and a Brembo big brake kit. Jon Sibal’s bright mint green TS Designs fender flares go well with the blacked-out Ray’s Gram Lights Xtreme57 Wheels and Toyo Proxes T1 Sport tires.

Inspired by impressive sports bikes, the Hyundai Veloster is now designed with black unique A-pillars that provide the glass with a resemblance to a motorcycle helmet visor. The front features a bold rendition of Hyundai’s distinct hexagon-shaped front grille, special LED position lamps, and signature hood scoop detailing. Available upgrades and optional components include the piano black highlights, a chrome grille surround, a huge panoramic sunroof, and fog lights.

The stylish Veloster also highlights “Fluidic Sculpture” lines in its design profile as well as body color mirrors and door handles, wraparound taillights and headlamps, and brawny wheel arches. It also comes with regular 17-inch alloy tires as well two other types of 18-in wheels. The premium 18-in wheels are made with polished inserts, a feature that has never been seen before in the segment.

The rear design of the dynamic Hyundai Veloster comes with a unique glass hatch, black lower fascia, and dual-centered chrome exhaust tips that blend well with the aggressive front fascia.

For its interiors, the controls and the center stack look like a fuel tank of a sport bike and are equipped with a single-push button starter. The air ventilators are designed after the tailpipes of motorcycles and the floor console look similar to a bike seat. Metallic details are also added all over its interior. Pedals made of alloy and a shift knob and steering wheel wrapped in leather are also provided.


Aside from mixing the design elements of the coupe and the impressive functionalities of the hatchback, the Hyundai Veloster also features an extra passenger door. This feature is similar to the rear-hinged doors that are common among coupes in the past.
