Comfortably overshadowing Hyundai’s RE:MIX special edition Veloster production car unveiled today at the SEMA Show in Las Vegas is another Veloster built by Hyundai staff, though with a little help from Cosworth.
A skunk works project built by the design and engineering teams at Hyundai’s Irvine, CA office it boasts a wild aero kit with an even wilder rear spoiler. Designed as a track ready machine it features a full roll cage and Sparco racing seats inside while at each corner a Bilstein suspension system lowers the car significantly. Huge 19-inch HRE wheels complete the look, with a Brembo big brake upgrade and some wide 275 series Kumho tires.
As for power, Hyundai outsourced that project to the experts at Cosworth, who tuned the Veloster Turbo’s 1.6-liter engine to 400-hp.
Is Hyundai secretly planning a higher-performance Veloster Turbo? One can only hope.
