The Hyundai has unveiled the Veloster N Performance concept. The 2019 Specialty Equipment Market Association (SEMA) Show in Las Vegas, Nevada Dubbed the Veloster N Performance Concept, the hot hatch sports a number of bolt-on parts that aim to show what the aftermarket is capable of doing to the high-powered Hyundai.
Visually, the Veloster N Performance Concept rivals the Civic Type R for outrageous bodywork. It features parts from KWE including more aggressive splitters, a bigger rear wing with large end plates and a hood with a central bulge and scoop. At each corner are forged 19-inch OZ Racing wheels wrapped in Pirelli P-Zero Corsa tires.
Autoblog revealed that the performance upgrades are restricted to brakes and suspension. The factory electronically adjustable suspension has been swapped for Extreme Racing coilovers and anti-roll bars from Daewon Steel. The chassis features bracing front to rear from WIF. Brakes have been changed to Alcon units with 6-piston calipers and 15-inch rotors up front and 4-piston calipers with 14-inch rotors at the back.
The cabin is orange-accented and full of Alcantara. It’s found on the gear-knob boot, steering wheel, parking lever, air-vent surround, headliner and pillar liners, armrests, and doors. Other additions include carbon-fiber trim, Sabelt alcantara and carbon sport seats, an aluminum shifter, and a red start/stop button.
Hyundai didn’t mention performance specifications, but the standard Veloster N has a turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine that produces up to 275 hp (205 kW / 279 PS) and 260 lb-ft (352 Nm) of torque. It is connected to a six-speed manual transmission which sends power to the front wheels.
