Italian design legend Giorgetto Giugiaro is joining forces with Hyundai to resurrect the Hyundai Pony concept

He is the father of the Volkswagen Golf, and he has shaped automotive design since the 1970s like no other designer: Giorgetto Giugiaro (84), Car Designer of the Century.

Giugiaro had sold Ital Design to the Volkswagen Group in 2010 and started his own consultancy, GFG Style, together with his son Fabrizio in 2015. Now he has teamed up with Hyundai to resurrect a lost icon: The 1974 Pony Coupe concept – a car whose traces disappeared in Korea decades ago.
