Hyundai’s future sports product will be the production version of the RM19 concept, which was shown at the Los Angeles Auto Show a couple of hours ago.

It is worth recalling that back in 2014, the South Korean company Hyundai introduced the concept of a mid-engined sports car to the world, called the Veloster Midship. A year later, the same guys showed us the RM15 concept, which was characterized by significant savings in overall weight compared to its predecessor. Now, at the Los Angeles Auto Show, the automaker introduced the RM19, which shows what the brand’s sports car will actually look like, with an engine between the front and rear seats.

 According to the assurances of Hyundai representatives, according to the plan of the company’s management, the serial version of the concept shown will be presented in a couple of years.

 “Albert Bermann, who is the brand leader in research and development, does not make concepts just for presentation. If the concept of a mid-engined sports car was created, then there is no doubt that it will have a production version in the coming years, ” – company representatives said in an interview.

  So what is there to expect from the news? The car will be built on the basis of the shown RM19 concept, which in turn was created on the basis of the Veloster hatchback, then the serial model will not receive those “crazy” aerodynamic and powerful wings that the concept had. The RM19 concept is powered by a 390-horsepower 2.0-liter turbocharged gasoline engine. Torque will be transmitted to the rear wheels through a sequential six-speed gearbox. Acceleration to 100 km / h will take less than 4.0 seconds, and the maximum speed will be more than 250 km / h.

Not so long ago, we wrote that the flagship sedan Hyundai Grandeur is officially presented. Those wishing to purchase this elegant sedan have already left over 32,000 pre-orders.
