The Motorstudio has what Hyundai calls Car Rotators. This houses 9 full-size models of the Genesis that are rotated at a certain angle each month, allowing customers to see every side of the car, including its underbelly.

The building will also be used as an art gallery that will house international exhibits, says Hyundai. The five-floor building houses an auto library, a kids’ lounge, a premium customer lounge, a car-tuning lounge, a gallery and a cafe.
