The Genesis GV60 Magma Concept made a remarkable global dynamic debut at the 2024 Goodwood Festival of Speed. This debut marks the first time a Magma model has been showcased in action since the high-performance program’s official launch in March. Led by racing legend and Genesis Brand Partner Jacky Ickx, the GV60 Magma impressed on the Goodwood hillclimb, setting the stage for its forthcoming production and sales launch.

“We are thrilled to present the global dynamic debut of GV60 Magma Concept at the 2024 Goodwood Festival of Speed,” said Donckerwolke. “The festival’s storied legacy and enthusiastic audience provide an ideal platform to showcase the capabilities of our new Magma program and highlight our strong commitment to high performance.”

Exciting Dynamic Debuts

The GV60 Magma Concept was one of several Genesis vehicles showcased at Goodwood. Other notable debuts included the Genesis G80 EV Magma Concept and the Genesis G70 Track Taxi Nordschleife, designed for passenger rides at Germany’s Nürburgring track.

The GV60 Magma Concept, first unveiled at Genesis House New York on March 25, represents the brand’s commitment to high performance. The model enhances the design and performance of the existing Genesis GV60 with improved battery and motor technology, and meticulous attention to chassis, aerodynamics, and thermodynamics. The car’s widened and lowered stance provides better stability and a lower center of gravity, essential for sporty driving.
