Pininfarina HK GT concept teased ahead of Geneva debut

Illustrious design house Pininfarina is known for striking concept debuts at the Geneva Motor Show, and this year will be no different. A new teaser image of the HK GT has been released prior to the covers being pulled off next week.

Described as an “elegant and eco-sustainable Gran Turismo”, the sleek electric four-seater can be seen in much greater detail in this latest teaser image. A pointy, low-nose features stretched-back headlights, while a long bonnet is flanked by wings raised over the wheels.

Previously expected to be a four-door, the HK GT instead features two massive roof-hinged gullwing doors that allow access to the front and rear.

A curvy, coupe-like sloping roofline rounds off the rear, while distinctive wheel designs can also be seen in the teaser. The absence of a B-pillar means full-length side windows and easy access to the four individual seats inside. We’ve yet to see a shot of the dash, but a conventional steering wheel can be seen, while the dash juts out above a floating centre console.

The HK GT is a collaboration between the Italian styling house and the Hong Kong-based Hybrid Kinetic Group. We can assume that the former has taken care of the aesthetics with the latter providing the HK GT’s electric propulsion system. It’s not clear yet whether the concept signals any sort of production intent, but Pininfarina tends to stick to producing design studies these days.
