Superhero fans urged to keep eyes peeled around Swindon car dealership

Fans of the Marvel superhero movie franchise are being urged to keep their eyes peeled around Swindon motor dealer Pebley Beach.

Unconfirmed reports suggest a limited edition of Hyundai's popular Kona SUV, inspired by Marvel Comics' Iron Man character, will be arriving in the UK early next year.

The limited release will fulfil the dreams of fanboys who have been champing at the bit ever since a one-off Kona Iron Man was unveiled in the US last summer.

Hyundai revealed a concept car at Kona, Hawaii – home of the world-famous Ironman Triathlon World Championship – from which the subcompact crossover takes its name.

The concept was 40mm wider than a regular model and sat on 19-inch bidirectional wheels adorned with Iron Man’s mask in the centre. 

The LED headlights were inspired by the illuminated eyes of the Iron Man mask, while the fog lights bore the Stark Industries logo, and flashes of red on otherwise steel grey coloured body panels reinforced the inspiration.

The manufacturer said the styling of the special edition was led by “the strong, armoured appearance of the Iron Man suit, with its powerful lines echoing the sensual body of the comic and cinematic hero.”

It is not known how many of the design features from the one-off concept car will make it through to the production model. 

Pebley Beach managing director Dominic Threlfall said: "Hyundai and Stark Industries are a natural fit, because they share values in embracing advanced technologies for the safety and comfort of their passengers – whether they are driving cars or wearing bullet-proof flight-enabling suits. 

"The Kona SUV has already proved an enormous hit with our customers, and the arrival of the world's first all-electric SUV this summer means every customer can help save the world – even if it's just by cutting their carbon emissions."

Pebley Beach Limited is an Appointed Representative of Automotive Compliance Ltd, who is authorised and regulated by the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA No 497010). Automotive Compliance Ltd’s permissions as a Principal Firm allows Pebley Beach Limited to act as a credit broker, not as a lender, for the introduction to a limited number of lenders and to act as an agent on behalf of the insurer for insurance distribution activities only.

We can introduce you to a selected panel of lenders, which includes manufacturer lenders linked directly to the franchises that we represent. An introduction to a lender does not amount to independent financial advice and we act as their agent for this introduction. Our approach is to introduce you first to the manufacturer lender linked directly to the particular franchise you are purchasing your vehicle from, who are usually able to offer the best available package for you, taking into account both interest rates and other contributions. If they are unable to make you an offer of finance, we then seek to introduce you to whichever of the other lenders on our panel is able to make the next best offer of finance for you. Our aim is to secure the best deal you are eligible for from our panel of lenders. Lenders may pay a fixed commission to us for introducing you to them, calculated by reference to the vehicle model or amount you borrow. Different lenders may pay different commissions for such introductions, and manufacturer lenders linked directly to the franchises that we represent may also provide preferential rates to us for the funding of our vehicle stock and also provide financial support for our training and marketing. But any such amounts they and other lenders pay us will not affect the amounts you pay under your finance agreement, all of which are set by the lender concerned. If you ask us what the amount of commission is, we will tell you in good time before the Finance agreement is executed. All finance applications are subject to status, terms and conditions apply, UK residents only, 18’s or over. Guarantees may be required.
