Hyundai is developing a new sports carApril 26, 2020
It is expected that when the car appears in two or three years, Hyundai will bring the dynamics of the mid-engine to a new level of availability.
As far as we know, decision makers in South Korea are still evaluating whether their car will go under Hyundai for $ 40,000 or Genesis for $ 70,000. Genesis is challenging Corvettes and Porsches too early, but the Hyundai N performance sub-brand will be undermined if it is limited to modifying fuel-efficient cars, family sedans, and crossovers.
As an indicator of its intent, Hyundai recently put journalists behind the wheel of its RM19. Featuring a massive turbocharger, its 2.0-liter engine delivers 390 horsepower and directs torque to a six-speed manual gearbox. This is a confirmation of the concept, not a prototype. The RM19 is slow and peak, with tight gear shifts and a neutral chassis.
The car, previously nicknamed RM20 N on the Web, is likely to exchange RM19’s small power for improved handling. We assume this will be a two-seat hatchback using an eight-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission with 325 horsepower.
