Hyundai has unveiled the Veloster C3 Roll Top concept at the Los Angeles Auto Show.
Designed to combine "open-air freedom with the style of a coupe and the functionality of a tailgate," the C3 has an innovative soft top that can be retracted forward or backwards. This, combined with a new tailgate, allows the coupe to function as a pickup truck.
On the styling front, the concept draws inspiration from fixed gear bicycles that are colorful, minimalistic and highly customizable. As such, the C3 has a unique color scheme with a white body, red mirrors and mismatched 18-inch alloy wheels. There's also a blacked out grille, extended side skirts and a center-mounted dual exhaust system.
The hipster theme carries over to the cabin as it features two-tone leather seats and a mosaic that is constructed out of more than 20 old skate boards.
Power is provided by a turbocharged 1.6-liter four-cylinder engine that develops 201 bhp (150 kW) and 195 lb-ft (264 Nm) of torque. Performance specifications were not released, but Hyundai says it gives the car "instantaneous power delivery."
