South Korean automotive manufacturer Hyundai has teamed up with the Istituto Europeo di Design (IED) — a design school based in Milan — to create a concept for a dune buggy that can transform into a jet ski. Named the Kite, the vehicle was unveiled at Geneva Motor Show and was created by 15 students studying for a Masters in Transportation Design at the school.

Details about the open air concept vehicle are sparse, although it does feature LED headlights, dynamic bodywork and a huge tail light. The dune buggy also comes with partially exposed suspension and oversized OZ Racing wheels complete with off-road tires. Other features include a “floating” dashboard and a large steering wheel that has an opening for a smartphone, allowing drivers to use it as a control panel. Hyundai has released hardly any details about the Kite, although the company did reveal that it is powered by four electric motors located inside the wheels.
