Gator: Hyundai Concept Car

Inspired by the Top Fuel drag racers of the ’60s, the hydrogen fuel cell-powered Gator is the answer to this question: what might a drag racer look like if it wasn’t powered by traditional fuels or dictated by traditional packaging constraints?The Gator’s alien shape is rooted in pure function: the main fuselage incorporates roll protection, and the center spline houses the fuel cells themselves. The driver controls the Gator using a side-stick control and a heads-up display incorporated into his or her helmet, all while seated below the vehicle’s main body in a seat sling.
