2. Hyundai PassoCorto

This wild Hyundai concept is called the PassoCort. It is a design study built by Italy’s Instituto Europeo di Design (IED) in Turin. Last year, the school built the Alfa Romeo Gloria project, but this year it teamed up with the Korean automaker’s European design studio for this unique concept. As a result, it’s one sexy sports car featuring design elements that you wouldn’t expect from Hyundai. In a way, it clearly proves that IED and its students had creative reins over the PassoCorto’s design and Hyundai shouldn’t be shameful for taking notes.

Powering the car is a mid-mounted 1.6-liter twin-turbo four-cylinder engine with 270 hp.

With a mid-engine layout, the PassoCorto features sporty handling capabilities while the small engine offers a balance of fuel economy and performance.

Think of it as Hyundai’s Porsche Cayman.
