Think of the letter N when it comes to Hyundai and we’ll instantly narrow down on its performance division. For car enthusiasts in Singapore, it’ll not be long before we browse the classifieds to locate some, only to realise that used car examples are few and far between.

It might just be better for us to look way ahead, as suggested by Hyundai’s unveiling of the N Vision 74 concept by Lake Como, Italy. Hyundai Motor Group’s Innovation Centre in Singapore might be building locally-specced Ioniq 5s, but currently there’s no word on whether specials like this can be realised from ground up here. But we’ll never know, for it might just be one of Carousell’s most expensive listings, ever.

Now, back to reality. To have Hyundai rubbing shoulders with other coachbuilders at Villa Pliniana is a feat nothing short of amazing. The event brought together former and present Hyundai engineers and designers to commemorate the previously announced restoration of the 1974 concept car that led to the creation of the brand’s Pony line-up, Korea’s first independently developed mass-production models.

Hyundai Motor collaborated with Italian design firm GFG Style, notably its father and son founders Giorgetto and Fabrizio Giugiaro to rebuild the influential 1974 Pony Coupe Concept that young Giorgetto created for Hyundai’s debut at the 1974 Turin Motor Show.

And to have the father and son duo’s ideas come to fruition in the form of the N Vision 74 shows how much trust Hyundai has placed on this concept. This is a hydrogen fuel cell-hybrid ‘Rolling Lab’ from Hyundai’s high-performance N brand. It’s developed around a unique hydrogen fuel cell hybrid architecture that combines the strengths of the battery motor and a hydrogen fuel cell system.

N Vision 74 features left and right independent dual motors on the rear wheels, boasting a power output of 680PS and acceleration of less than four seconds from 0 to 100 km/h. Power is provided by an 85kW hydrogen fuel cell stack on the front, a 62kWh lithium-ion battery between the driver and the passenger, and two 2.1kg hydrogen tanks on the rear to provide a driving distance of nearly 600km.
