The South Korean brand has unveiled the most powerful version of the Elantra mid-size sedan. The car received the full name Hyundai Elantra N TCR and is intended to participate in international races in the TCR class.

Remember that hardcore Elantra prototype that appeared online back in June? It was indeed the TCR version of the new compact sedan. Now, Hyundai is officially unveiling its new racing car. He joins an expanding lineup of companies dedicated to motorsport. These now include the TCR i30 N and Veloster N, not to mention that crazy Veloster N ETCR with a mid-drive electric motor and rear-wheel drive.

The Elantra N TCR prototypes have already completed 5,000 kilometers of testing on multiple racetracks across Europe, and Hyundai says it is testing both sprint and endurance (meaning endurance) versions of its race car.

It is reported that by the end of this year, serial copies of the machine will be ready for shipment to customers.

The novelty is equipped with a 2.0-liter turbocharged petrol engine, which was taken from the regular version of the model. Engine power is currently unknown, but TCR racing rules require a maximum power of around 340 hp. and a maximum torque of 410 Nm. As is the case with Hyundai’s other TCR-compliant vehicles, the novelty will send its power to the road through a six-speed, shift-padded transmission.

Also, according to the TCR rules, the car will have a minimum weight of 1,265 kilograms, including the driver. Hyundai Motorsport did not provide interior images. According to rumors, the car will receive the most “stripped-down” interior, as well as a full roll cage.

Not so long ago, AutoTimesNews wrote that images of Hyundai Tucson N appeared on the Internet. On Sunday, September 27, renderings of Hyundai Tucson N appeared on the Internet. These images were developed by an independent designer under the nickname KDesign AG.
