Hyundai i30 N Project C for racing track will be shown at Frankfurt Motor ShowAugust 20, 2019
The South Korean novelty will compete with the German Volkswagen Golf GTI Clubsport. The version of the high-performance hatchback, which is focused on use on the racetrack, will be released in a circulation of 600 copies.
Last month, a mysterious prototype of the Hyundai i30 N high-performance hatchback was spotted on the Nurburgring racetrack. We did not know what version of the car was already presented.
Now, when the curtain is removed, we can confidently say that it was the new Project C – a special edition of the “charged” South Korean baby, which will be sold exclusively in Europe. With 271 horsepower under the hood, a car oriented to use on the racetrack will be released in a circulation of 600 copies.
Hyundai’s competitor to the German “evil” hatchback VW Golf GTI Clubsport / TCR boasts low weight – this effect was achieved thanks to the use of carbon fiber reinforced plastic and lightweight 19-inch wheels.
The company does not say how many kilograms she eventually managed to remove. The standard i30 N in 271-horsepower weighs 1,429 kg.
Reducing the weight will probably reduce the acceleration time to 100 km / h, which is currently 6.1 seconds, and the maximum speed is 250 km / h. Hyundai mentions that the i30 N Project C also boasts some aerodynamic “chips” as well as improved handling.
That’s all that is known about the new product at the moment. There are a couple of photos with a disguised prototype with an orange sticker with a stylized letter “C” and a layout with the image of the track. Future i30 N versions are expected to finally feature an automatic dual-clutch gearbox as well as an all-wheel drive system.
