As far as car names go this is one of the best. Hyundai will unveil the Veloster “Grappler”, an all-terrain concept car at the 2019 SEMA show in Las Vegas.
The Grappler clearly is a lifted Veloster and the more I look at it, well let’s just say it floats my boat.
The custom front and rear brush guards give the Grappler a super tough look. In fact it would scare the paint off your garage wall.
Those massive oversized all-terrain tyres look like they could tackle the lunar surface.
There is a Borla cat-back exhaust to add some bark we’re told.
You’ll note the roof rack by Thule and more lights than a freight train by Baja Designs.
That basket also holds a removable solar panel that powers an all-electric portable power station mounted inside the cabin for remote journeys.
The vinyl body wrap features a ghosted Hyundai-themed livery. A Seibon carbon-fibre bonnet competes the exterior package.
Inside is an integrated roll cage that also has mounts for a full-size spare wheel and tyre.
There are special traction mats, a utility shovel, the Goal Zero portable power station, roadside assistance kit, first aid kit, Napier outdoor dome tent, Scosche Mounts, Goal Zero crush lights and premium Recaro seats.
