Genesis GV80 revealed: Here’s what you need to know
Genesis GV80 – The four-passenger GV80 Coupe Concept gives the Genesis brand a fresh angle. In the event held at Genesis House New York, Genesis revealed the GV80 Coupe Concept. According to Group Chief Creative Officer Luc Donckerwolke, “It emphasizes the duality of the Genesis brand by showcasing the antagonistic character that lives within the Athletic and Elegance parameters of Genesis’ design philosophy.”
Genesis GV80 inspired by the X Speedium Coupe Concept
The GV80 Coupe Concept, which was inspired by the X Speedium Coupe Concept revealed in New York last year, combines the utility of a lifestyle-focused SUV with the dynamism of a sports car. It is a declaration of support for more emotionally charged, performance-based models as well as a sneak peek at upcoming Genesis initiatives.
The Genesis brand initially started producing luxury sedans, which evolved into the G70, G80, and G90 models.” “Over the past seven years, we have expanded the range to include more lifestyle-focused models, like our GV80 and GV70 SUVs. We are currently stretching the envelope with more emotive vehicles that improve Genesis’ dynamic and performance qualities.Luc Donckerwolke, CEO
Performance-optimised exterior design
The quad lights, which have progressed from multi-lens array technology to seamless light performance, are encircled by the Double G-Matrix Patterned Crest Grille on the front fascia of the GV80 Coupe Concept. Four holes in the bumper that lessen shadowed thermal movement improve cooling. The long hood and ample dash-to-axle dimensions of the GV80 Coupe Concept are a result of Genesis’ rear-wheel-drive architecture. The anti-wedge parabolic line highlights these elegant dimensions even more. It is enhanced by the powerful fenders and blisters that contrast with the car’s exquisite coupe shape.
The ‘Designed by Genesis’ plaque on the front fender draws attention to the exclusive nature of Genesis models, and the carbon fibre roof, which helps the GV80 Coupe Concept’s dynamic driving characteristics by lowering the centre of gravity and reducing weight, highlights the sporty nature of the car. Further, the vehicle’s enhanced aerodynamic fluidity is supplemented by an upper back spoiler and the spoiler lip on the elliptical concave ducktail, which increases downforce at speed, to further strengthen its driving dynamics. The Two Lines signature at the back is finished by the seamless rear lamps.
Magma, the exterior colour that was motivated by the brand’s Distinctly Korean attitude, highlights the model’s bold design. Donckerwolke said this about the hue: “The colour symbolizes the self-assured and passionate mindset of Korea. A high-performing and extroverted demeanour quickly contrasts with the first image of someone who is quiet, efficient, disciplined, and humble.
The white space ideology prevails in the Interior of Genesis GV80
The interior of the GV80 Coupe Concept contrasts Genesis’ elegant Beauty of White Space ideology with its athletic features, continuing the exterior’s themes. The interior of the GV80 Coupe Concept combines black Nappa and suede leather with plaid double stitching, orange piping, and carbon fibre weaves on the utilitarian surfaces, emphasizing the sportiness of the space through the use of a three-spoke steering wheel.
Four bucket seats improve body support during turns, enhancing passenger safety and comfort, and the body-coloured carbon fibre backrest emphasizes the extroverted nature of the GV80 Coupe Concept. An additional G-Matrix strut brace is installed behind the bucket chairs to increase the body’s structural rigidity. The GV80 Coupe Concept reaffirms Genesis’ dedication and goals to produce cutting-edge luxury goods with strong, emotive impact.
