The Hyundai CCS

Following an overwhelming public response, Hyundai is delighted to announce its stunning CCS concept car will be developed to go into production.

It was revealed at the Bologna Motor Show last week that the company’s most desirable concept car to date is destined for the showroom before 2007.

Based on Hyundai’s acclaimed third generation Coupe, the production version of the CCS – Coupe Concept Study – will have a unique roof mechanism engineered by industry experts, Karmann.

This system will allow the driver to transform the car from a glass-roofed Coupe to a sleek convertible at the touch of a switch. If weather conditions are changeable the driver can even opt for an intermediate configuration where the central glass panel slides beneath the rear window to give just a taste of wind-in-the-hair motoring.

The car was first shown at the Frankfurt Motor Show in September – prompting a stack of e-mails from potential customers eager to buy the car.

This global response has led Hyundai to confirm a production schedule for the CCS.

Jim Campbell, Marketing Director for Hyundai Car (UK) Ltd, said: "The Coupe has proved to be a huge hit in the UK, and we are delighted the CCS will become a reality. We will bring a new dimension to the cabriolet market, adding real value-for-money to soft-top motoring."
