Hyundai: 2010 Equus {Project VI} [Exclusive Photos]By Staff

hyundai equus project vi

For this week, I got you guys photos of the Equus. Looking at this car, I am just awed that it really comes from the Korean car manufacturer, Hyundai! But on doing some more research I realized that it is jointly produced with Mitsubishi. Still, its is pretty impressive! Check out the post on more information about the car that I compiled thanks to Digital Chosunilbo and Edmunds.

Unlike previous versions, the updated model will get rear-wheel drive. The car is to compete with imported large sedans. Its large radiator grill makes it look impressive from the front, while the side view is “elegant and dynamic,” the company said in a press release. The model will feature a Tau 4.6L DOHC V-8, 4.6-liter gasoline engine, which made the 10 Best Engines list of American motoring magazine Ward’s Auto. It can generate a maximum of 380 horsepower. According to Hyundai-blog.com, the new VI could get a Hyundai-developed eight-speed automatic transmission, as well as such advanced technology as a lane-departure warning system and a second-generation stability management system.

The new model also has a “pre-safe” seat belt system designed to reduce the risk of injury by tightening the seatbelt and starting safe-net facilities when the car is about to hit another. It also features “integrated chassis control,” which combines information and entertainment functions and a built-in alarm when the car veers from its lane.

Note that the previous generation sedans Equus (sold in Europe under the name Centennial ) issued since 1998. The vehicle was developed jointly with Mitsubishi: 2010 Hyundai Equus is a copy of the Japanese model Proudia.

In the Korean domestic market, the Equus is used primarily by executives and livery services as a premium chauffeur-driven vehicle. So far, there are no immediate plans to sell the VI outside Korea. It is a beauty to look at though!
