Born from the floorplan of a Hyundai Pony sedan, the Pony Coupe was built by Giugiaro at ItalDesign. The car is wedge-shaped painted in grey-silver colour.
The Pony Coupé is a successful experiment. It was very slim and extremely graphic surface treatment and the adoption of the bumpers painted in body colour. The interior is probably the most successful of the early Italdesign's prototypes. The dashboard is cylindrical, while the seats remind some container objects of industrial design than a car.
This car would be the greatest source of inspiration for the legendary DeLorean DMC-12.
