Genesis X Gran Racer

Today, at the Busan International Mobility Show 2024 (BIMOS), Genesis unveiled the Genesis X Gran Racer Vision Gran Turismo (VGT) Concept. This event marked the first public appearance of a Magma vehicle in Korea, showcasing Genesis’ commitment to pushing the boundaries of luxury mobility.

Genesis X Gran Racer VGT Concept: Redefining Performance

The X Gran Racer VGT Concept is a derivative of the earlier Genesis X Gran Berlinetta Concept and the fourth vehicle developed for the Gran Turismo digital racing game series. As part of the high-performance Genesis Magma program, the X Gran Racer VGT Concept highlights Genesis’ leap into high-performance luxury.

Exterior: A Symphony of Form and Function

The X Gran Racer VGT Concept boasts enhanced aerodynamic features, including active aerodynamic flaps and a flat underbody design to optimize airflow and stability. The Two-Line Crest Grille lamp design, inspired by the X Trilogy Concept, extends from the front to the sides and rear, creating a cohesive flow that enhances performance. Additional features like the larger front splitter, rear diffuser, and aggressive rocker panel contribute to high-speed stability.

The vehicle’s side profile, with an elongated dash-to-axle ratio and mid-engine layout, exemplifies Genesis’ timeless aesthetic. Voluminous fenders and parabolic lines create an iconic silhouette, while the rear design integrates the Two-Line character into an elliptical concave volume, expressing concentrated energy. The real carbon fiber rear wing enhances downforce, ensuring stability, while vertical rear lights ensure visibility even in extreme racing conditions.

Interior: The Beauty of White Space

The interior design, embodying Genesis’ “The Beauty of White Space” philosophy, focuses on minimalism and performance. The race-centric design exposes structural elements, minimizing weight and accentuating functionality. Features include a fully integrated roll cage, a high-performance racing yoke, and a Digital Panorama Interface that provides essential information at a glance.

Performance and Powertrain

At its core, the X Gran Racer VGT Concept features a front mid-mounted race-spec Lambda II V6 engine with Genesis’ electric supercharger technology, delivering a combined 1,540 horsepower and 1,051 pound-feet of torque. This powertrain represents a significant advancement from its predecessor, showcasing Genesis’ relentless pursuit of innovation.


The Busan International Mobility Show 2024 highlights Genesis’ unwavering commitment to innovation, performance, and luxury. From the high-performance X Gran Racer VGT Concept to the luxurious Neolun Concept and the redesigned Electrified G80, Genesis continues to set new standards in the automotive industry. With these groundbreaking models, Genesis is poised to redefine the future of high-performance luxury mobility.
