The Hyundai press event isn't until later today, but we spotted the Hyundai Nuvis Concept undergoing final prep before it's New York Auto Show debut. We're impressed by those serious gullwing doors.

The Nuvis is, apparently, Hyundai's latest in a proud tradition of concept cars that'll never reach the street. Seems fitting gullwing doors are making a comeback in proper Malaise II-fashion, and this concept is certainly bringing the heat with it's full-length set. The styling is actually not too bad for the vehicle type — if you don't look too hard at the squinty face. According to our super-secret sources, the Nuvis will be playing the part of Thunderhawk should a remake of M.A.S.K. ever hit the silver screen.

Stay tuned for complete details after the press event.
