Alongside the Vision GT Concept (teased above), Hyundai will also be showing off an early version of its upcoming World Rally Championship race car based on the i20, which it plans to compete with starting in the 2016 season.

    First luxury cars, now performance models. Where does it end, Hyundai? LOL This will be very interesting.

    I swear they forgot about Equus. Genesis looks and feels way more luxurious, just no extended rear seats…

    They better concentrate on fixing their slumping sales, rather than invest all their money, time, and energy on this niche category. They aren’t at that level yet.
