HYUNDAI Test Vehicles Spotted

Hyundai have had some masked up vehicles out here in Griffith since Wednesday doing testing out of town in the tough conditions etc.

All are LHD with stickers and some had bras.,

Tonight I seen them all parked out the back of a motel, So I parked and took out the digital video and took a few snaps. Then a guy in a little van (matiz size) ws patrolling the car park.

This van was a Hyundai in LHD.. No idea what it was though.
I tried to get a photo of it. but he kept driving away, and wouldnt let me get a photo.

He was definatley doing a security patrol of the car park, because he has been lapping the car park for about 5 hours.

INTERESTING .. At least I have a few pics... I'll post them on a website tomrrow.

Hmm sounds interesting. Just flicked through latest 'Car News' and in "Future Products" they have listed a "Hyundai TB / Trevi - 1.3l five door city car from 14k due june 2002"

Sounds like this is what you may well have seen. Wonder if the car mags are interested?

that sounds like it! The photos of that little van are not excellent. Partly because I went back at like 3am when they where in bed, and had to use the Night Vision on the camera :\ So the quality is a little poor.

The VY just looks like another bloated Commo with a more Statesman looking frontal treatment.
No thanks!
