The Hyundai N 2025 Vision GT virtual concept car which was unveiled at the Frankfurt Motor Show 2015 in the form of a life size scale model is not just a creation that will feature in the Gran Tourismo Play Station video came but it also heralds the company’s new performance brand ‘N’.
Hyundai N performance division (N signifies Hyundai’s Namyang and Nurburgring R&D centres) will shortly start churning out driver focused go-faster variants of the South Korean automaker’s road cars. The initial phase of development of the performance cars will be handled by Namyang HQ while the testing and validation are taken care of by the Nurburgring facility.
The video shows the virtual N 2025 Vision Gran Turismo in action with an advanced hydrogen fuel cell powertrain a the heart. The concept race cars’s design, technology and character would be transferred to the road-going Hyundai N’s.
Hyundai i20 N is expected to be the first model to be launched by the sub-brand. Once can expect aerodynamic enhancements like sharper bumpers, side skirts, larger rear spoiler alongside stiffened suspension, upgraded brakes, large alloy wheels and a specially tuned steering system. A powerful turbocharged petrol engine goes without saying.
Expect the first Hyundai N car to be ready sometime in 2016.
