As predicted from the pronounced Red Bull logo on its door, Rhys Millen—drifter, stunt driver and Pikes Peak veteran—will be driving the new Hyundai Veloster in the upcoming 2011 U.S. Rallycross season.

The 2012 Veloster is a particularly lively unconventional design, one that Hyundai says was inspired by a sport bike motorcycle. Which sport bike does the Hyundai Veloster remind you of?
