At the recent Car Design Event in Munich, Genesis unveiled a new interaction of its X Speedium concept vehicle with the addition of the X Speedium Giro concept.

Car Design Event, now in its second edition, returned to the Munich Drivers’ Club this week with the aim of bringing designers, journalists, students and enthusiasts together in a setting that befits a focus on car design.

John Krsteski, chief designer of Genesis North America said: “Story development is a big part of everything you do – what’s the story behind what you’re doing, what’s the story behind your concept, and so on. Although a lot of the ’designer story’ is oftentimes different to the ’public story’ from a marketing perspective, internally, we’ve actually evolved quite a bit to tell a story through visualisation and animation, which has become so fast now that in a matter of a couple of days, a designer can single handedly build their own model, animate it, compose music with it, and pitch it.” “You’re literally sitting there like you’re in a Hollywood studio watching this film – it’s pretty amazing.” he added.

The X Speedium Giro is a derivative of the X Speedium Coupe Concept, which belongs to the X Concept trilogy alongside the X Concept and X Convertible Concept. The X Speedium Giro features design elements that emphasise the brand’s commitment to exploring the future mobility. The vehicle was first displayed to the public during the World Economic Forum in Davos in January 2024. 

The car closely follows the design of the original X Speedium Coupe concept, featuring the brand’s Two Lines light signature in the front, distinctive hourglass silhouette and a parabolic line that extends from the front to the rear of the car. It has been fitted with a new roof rack, studded winter tires and bespoke fog lamps to face the most challenging winter conditions. 

The matte texture of the paint recreates glistening and soft snow crystals, creating a pattern that looks like the details of a snowy landscape. X Speedium Giro shows off a new look that combines toughness with a sporty vibe. The aero wheels and tires contribute to an athletic aesthetic, ideal for sports, while the loop lights, with their reduced, lightweight design, add a touch of sophistication to the overall look.
