Hyundai, until recently hasn’t been known for being the cool hipster car but last night that all changed when three customized Velosters were revealed at the grand opening of RE:MIX Lab, a multi-city festival of art, music, fashion, technology, culture and design.
The Hyundai Veloster is a slick looking piece of machinery that not only looks sporty but also has some luxury touches that will appeal to both guys and gals when driving through Williamsburg or even to the next Austin City Limits festival. The Veloster is a three-door coupe that was designed for those who love to drive but also experience their surroundings. That is where the RE:MIX lab came in to transform three of these cars into moving party machines.
On display, there was the Music Veloster that features a matte black exterior, black-smoked taillights, black suede and vinyl interior, a Fender Stratocaster guitar and Vox stainless amp. In the rear hatch a Numark NS6 DJ controller, customized black and red 15” Macbook Pro with Serato, three JL Audio Amps and two iPad’s controlled the playlist pumping out of the car. This would be the car Bruce Wayne would take out on weekends…
Next up was the Technology Veloster, which was equipped with equipment from Apple, Samsung, LG, and Panasonic. This might be considered the geek mobile of the collection but you certainly wouldn’t look nerdy in it. The white Technology Veloster featured a 40” Samsung 3D LCD TV, 3D Blu-Ray player and 3D camcorder. The rear hatch also featured shelving for 3D glasses. So not one person but several people could get into the 3D viewing action.
The last bad boy of the collection has to be the ultimate gaming machine. The Gaming Veloster took its design cues from the Xbox 360 with green and black accents, carbon fiber trim and Sparco race seat. The rear hatch of the Gaming Veloster featured a 40” TV that was connected to both Kinect and Xbox 360, in the back seat of the car you found additional controllers as well as screens that meant eight players at any given time could play an Xbox game in the car. To mod your car to look like a moving Xbox machine, you’ll need about about $80,000 bucks. The car keep in mind has a MSRP of $17,300.
The RE:MIX LAB fueled by Hyundai Veloster is a traveling exhibition that is currently incorporating elements of art, music, fashion, and technology.
It’s a good possibility these cars will be making its way to your neighborhood soon and we seriously suggest you check them out.
