From the minds of Hyundai Design North America, their official entry to the LA Auto Show Design Challenge features prominently in the action thriller “Countess of Siberia.”

As a vampire, Countess Elena has been walking the streets of the world since 1829. Armed with super-human senses and the ability to be a night-traveler, Elena was recruited to be a member of the Soviet spy network in World War II.

Since then, the Elena has undertaken a mission of protecting freedom and justice in the world while also curtailing the hazards of communism. To aid her in the constant quest for justice, Elena uses two vehicles at her disposal: the Hyundai Stratus Sprinter and the DB Atlant Airship. Just like her, the two vehicles offer plenty of unique features that make them a trustworthy companion for the crime-fighting vampire. The Stratus, for one, is capable of light combat and is armed and ready to tussle on just about any road surface it runs on. Meanwhile, the Atlanta Airship goes where the Status is ill-equipped to travel. It remains hidden in the sky to avoid detection and is used whenever Countess Elena needs to travel through waters to save some poor soul from the clutches of tyranny and oppression.

Kirby’s first exposure into the world of automobiles happened when he caught Knight Rider on television as a five-year old boy. David Hasselhoff didn’t leave much of an impression on him (that happened later on in Baywatch), but KITT certainly did. To this day, Kirby remains convinced that he will one day own a car with the same ‘spirit’ as the original KITT (not the 2008 monstrosity). He doesn't know when that will be, but until then, he’s committed to expressing his love for KITT, and all cars for that matter, here at TopSpeed.  Read More

Well, sad to say Amauri Grecco, this one will only exist at the movie and not in real like but hopefully someday they would truly put it on production. Well, I’m just also very interested with this unique vehicle.

oh. This one is very nice, look like a motor car. It was very futuristic in design, the shape of the body and of its wheels is really oozing with angst. Nothing could be compared with this; I dream to have this one sooner.

If I’m not mistaken this is the remodeled Elena? I must say that it is very futuristic on that platform, and I also noticed that the wheels of this one is looking so massive. Well, I’m kind of impressed with it.
