In the not too distant future will come Hyundai N, a new division of sports of the hyundai brand with some interesting models. It seems that the 24 hours of Nürburgring 2016, which will take place from 26 to 29 may, will serve to continue the development of one of them. We see in the image is a Hyundai i30 engine 2.0 Turbo, which could be the precursor of a production model with last name ‘N’.
Competing in the 24 hours, in addition to this development vehicle, we will also see a Hyundai i30 1.6 Turbo, and a Hyundai Veloster based on their production versions. Although our interest is mainly focus on the issue of testing, because that will be key to to test some of the technologies you want to use in the sub-brand N. And that best-case scenario to see their operation which Nürburgring.
The brand has also taken to launch video as advancement. In it he says that the 40% of this vehicle is new, including key parts such as the engine (which will deliver more than 260 HP), transmission, suspension, and shock absorbers. Not to mention the body widened, with a more muscular and sporty, in addition to improved aerodynamics. This test version will also improve their safety for the competition.
These elements will be tested thoroughly in ‘the Ring’ during the 24 hours, although previously it has been rolling around in the mythical path. Some of the essays consisted in giving 480 laps of the circuit (about 10,000 miles) in a few weeks. Due to the requirement of the Nordschleife, and its pronounced curves and slopes, it is said that this is equivalent to about 150,000 miles filming for conventional roads.
