LOOK FAST. Even standing on its pedestal, the Hyundai HCD6 seems to be launched in motion. The prototype roadster is the latest in a running series of sporty concept vehicles developed by the automaker’s California design arm. The two-seat roadster is based off a mid-engine platform powered by an upgraded version of Hyundai’s 2.7-liter V-6. That’s mated to a manual, six-speed transmission. The HCD6 is certainly not going to be confused with a run-of-the-mill Hyundai sedan. It features unusual, “floating” carbon fiber bumpers, an aggressive nose, and a side air intake flowing into the rear wheel wells. Though production seems unlikely, the HCD6 “is meant to indicate the direction of Hyundai’s future sporty cars,” said Dave Weber, vice president of marketing for the Korean company, and some elements could show up in upcoming models.
