Factory-Tuned Hyundai Veloster Turbo Concept Heading to SEMA


Hyundai will display “Velocity,” a factory-tuned Veloster Turbo concept at this year’s SEMA show. Velocity is a joint-project between Hyundai’s Southern Californian Design and Engineering teams, and is intended to up the ante on the standard Veloster Turbo’s performance and visual presence. The rendering shows a flamboyant body kit and spoiler, hinting at the actual tuner car’s wild look. Hyundai says the concept will have the power to back up its race-inspired appearance thanks to engine modifications from Cosworth, including new engine internals, turbocharger, intercooler, and air intake system. The 1.6-liter engine is expected to produce 400 hp and 350 lb-ft of torque. Bilstien dampers and springs work with Kumho tires wrapped around large 19-inch HRE wheels to increase cornering ability while four-piston Brembo brake calipers and two-piece rotors bring Velocity to a stop. The wide-body kit stretches over the 9-inch wide wheels wrapped in 273/35/19-size rubber, while the rear valance and large wing add downforce at speed. Inside, a Katzkin custom interior, Sparco race accessories, a data acquisition system, and roll bar have been added. Check out the full list of modifications below: Powertrain
