What's all this about?

It's a bloody big luxury coupé from Hyundai, powered by a 5.0-litre V8 petrol engine and featuring doors that open themselves, as if operated by an invisible valet. The design is also based around chivalry. So if you thought the Hyundai Genesis executive saloon was a barmy notion, then think again.

Why has Hyundai made this thing, and what's it called?

This is the Vision G Concept Coupé and it has been built to showcase Hyundai's future of upmarket vehicles featuting 'luxury, performance and style'.

So what's all this nonsense about chivalry? Does it adhere to the code of medieval knights?

No. No, it doesn't. And it doesn't have a heraldic coat of arms, either, before you start getting even more fatuous. The chivalry reference means the design 'doesn't need to shout to be noticed and respected'. And when the president of Hyundai, Peter Schreyer - the man behind the original Audi TT - says: "The design is our interpretation of the idea that Hyundai breathes into all of its vehicles - a DNA that balances design and performance with the idea that you don't need to be over the top in terms of glitz and stereotypical luxury cues", then you know you'd better take notice and swallow the idea that Hyundai is about to challenge the established premium elite.

And why the 5.0-litre V8?

It's essentially a US-led concept car, with the design coming primarily from the States. The 'Tau' engine under the bonnet is another US feature - it develops 420hp at 6,000rpm and 520Nm at 5,000rpm. It was unveiled at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art this week and will be on display at the Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance later this month.
