Since 2005, he worked at the Volkswagen studio in Potsdam, Germany, where he participated in the creation of the Lamborghini Huracan supercar. In 2014, Selipanov was appointed creative director of Bugatti. His creations include the Vision Gran Turismo concept and the Chiron 1500-horsepower hypercar.
Three years ago, Alexander left Volkswagen and went to work for the Genesis brand, a premium sub-brand of Hyundai, where he headed the European design center Global Genesis Advanced Studio. Under his leadership, two recent concepts, the Genesis Essenti and the Mint, were created.
