Unique BASF Mint Green Exterior Finish Unmistakably Sets This Veloster Apart

COSTA MESA, Calif., Oct. 30, 2012 – Hyundai has partnered with John Pangilinan, known as “John P.” in the tuner community, to create a brilliant mint green Veloster concept. The JP Edition concept debuts at the 2012 SEMA show under the Hyundai banner. Paint supplier BASF was consulted as the unique supplier of the Mint Green exterior finish for the concept.

“In creating the JP Edition Veloster, we were inspired to take the Veloster’s distinctive design cues and accentuate them with an iris-warping brilliant mint green exterior finish” said John Pangilinan. “The JP Edition Veloster concept takes the production car into ultra-exclusive tuner-car territory.”
