Hyundai first presented their Veloster concept back in 2007. At 4.10 metres in length and 1.45 metres in height, it is a 2+2 seater sports car with front-to-rear glass sun roof and a two-litre engine. The name Veloster was cobbled together from 'velocity' and 'roadster', with the aim of emphasising the sporty characteristics of the vehicle. The prototype was built at the company's own Design and Technical Center in Namyang. At the Auto Salon to be held in Seoul during the first week of July, the Veloster will be shown off in its final form. It is due to start rolling off the assembly lines in 2010.
