𝙕𝙡𝙂𝙕𝘼𝙂 𝟘𝟘𝟜: Design legacies
The new BMW 3.0 CSL, Abarth 500e sound effects, and Pony Chung.
⚑ Context is king.
Take the original Hyundai Pony. Here in the West, the version we received of the hatchback was a decent success, however was priced, treated, and remembered as a disposable car.
In Korea, the Pony was already a local legend—so much of a legend there’s now an entire private foundation and museum full of Hyundai design history.
This week, Hyundai and GFG Style (Giorgetto and Fabrizio) Giugiaro announced a collaboration to recreate the original (lost) 1974 Pony Coupé, so let’s dig deeper on the beginnings of this industry powerhouse.
Be excited about the 553 horsepower, manual transmission, central locking wheel hubs or wider composite bodywork, but I’m here for that chunky chrome wing that surrounds the 2023 BMW 3.0 CSL’s cabin.
BMW will make just 50—finally, a true limited edition car.
