french brand Hermes has collaborated with korean car manufacturer hyundai to create the limited edition ‘equus concept vehicle’. presented at the 2013 seoul auto show, the limousine is given a luxurious interior re-design, covered with materials such as premium leather and crocodile skins. along with a few exterior modifications, the four-door saloon is given a longer wheelbase and cabin styling,  accommodating a larger interior footprint for passengers in the rear. additionally, twenty new handcrafted fixtures created by Hermès has been implemented into the concept, contrasting unique single tone color combinations found within the company’s handbags.

  • Wow! South Korea’s version of the Rolls Royce, love the leather interior!

    Mr Green says:
  • Lovely excess; but with that expanse of gorgeous leather and attention to detail, one would think that the top of the dashboard would be finished in a non-reflective — preferably matte black alacantra — to prevent unsafe glare on the inside surface of the windscreen.

    Bruce Hendler says:
  • Lovely excess; but with that expanse of gorgeous leather and attention to so many details, one would think that the top of the dashboard would be finished in a non-reflective — preferably matte black alacantra — to prevent unsafe glare on the inside surface of the windscreen.

    Bruce Hendler says:
  • Oh-no…. Now the Koreans are getting a little full of themselves. How about getting someone one who bought a KIA or Hyundai to ‘buy a second one’ before trolling for poseurs, sheiks and tax cheats.

  • no, sorry. hermés and cheap? that dash, the exterior… awful!

    yngve says:
  • Beautiful finishings but what an awful car, every design aspect has been stolen from another manufacture, mostly Mercedes Benz’s S class, and maybe some Lexus

    Seb says:
  • the leather texture on the door panels is awful.
