Hyundai Built an Iron Man-inspired Kona
We all know that Tony Stark, a.k.a. Iron Man, drives an Audi R8. However, it seems that Mr. Stark wants to add a crossover into his car collection. As such, he contacted Hyundai and asked the Korean automaker to make an Iron Man inspired Kona. Who can say no to Iron Man, right?
At first glance, you can’t help but notice this Kona’s two-tone exterior paint, which Hyundai calls Iron Man red with matte gray. The front end of the vehicle is fitted with a custom daytime running light, which is meant to mimic the facemask and eye shape of the Iron Man suit. This Kona also comes with a dark chrome front grille, a V-shape hood garnish, and an Iron Man mask badge that’s placed on the front fender.
Turning to the side, the Kona Iron Man edition is designed with sharp character lines as well as red accents as seen on the doors and the sloping roofline. There’s also a Stark Industries decal placed on the rear door. This Kona sits on a set of custom 18-inch alloy wheels with Iron Man mask center caps.
Inside, it comes with a black interior theme along with red trims. The vehicle also has an Iron Man shift lever knob and a special head’s up display featuring Iron Man graphics. Hyundai added that this Kona also has a custom seat design.
The Kona Iron Man Edition will enter a limited global production run. Hyundai says the production is scheduled to begin in December, with the first units available in the first quarter of 2019. There’s no word yet if the Kona Iron Man Edition will arrive in the Philippines. But, Hyundai Philippines is offering the regular spec Kona, which debuted at the 2018 Manila International Auto Show last April.
