    • Ju-yung Chung founding Chairman of Hyundai wanted to help rebuild Korea after the Korean War and improve the lives of the people. He introduced at the 1974 Turin Motor Show the Pony Coupe Concept.

The interior showcased an iconic sensibility with the Giugiaro monocoque design and driver-centered floating architecture.  With its unique aesthetic sensibility, the 1974 Pony Coupe Concept was a groundbreaking model in its time.
