The soapbox is a steerable, brakeable, wheeled structure with which children used to roll down the hillside, and today it has developed into a serious (or rather frivolous) sport, with the Red Bull Championship and everything.

Hyundai didn’t get involved in the design of the Soapbox because of the bullshit, in fact, they weren’t motivated by the racing process, but rather by the construction process: they wanted to create something that customers could then build at home, with family or friends. The idea undoubtedly has to do with quarantine, confinement and boredom due to the coronavirus epidemic, but when you think about it, building a car is as much fun as board games.

When the staff at Hyundai’s European design office created the Soapbox, they thought specifically of materials and shapes that we could get from an average DIY store on the one hand, and with minimal dexterity and a medium-equipped tool chamber on the other.

That’s why the Hyundai 45 study car got its easy-to-shape, angular shapes from the Soapbox, the joystick arms made of screwdrivers; the 176 x 100 cm vehicle rolls on wheelbarrow wheels.
