Aftermarket supplier EGR Group helped modified a Hyundai Veloster Turbo for this November’s Specialty Equipment Market Association show, Hyundai said in a statement. Called the Night Racer concept, the car boasts both performance enhancements and an eye-catching visual scheme.
The most obvious modification to the Hyundai Veloster Turbo is a bright-yellow custom paint job called Yellowcake. The idea is for the car to be visible during night races, aided by upgraded headlights and a roof-mounted LED light bar. Hyundai asserts that with the loud paint and dazzling lights, “the EGR Night Racer will be impossible to miss.” Other visual add-ons include a new spoiler, wider fenders, and a new front splitter.
To prepare the Hyundai Veloster Turbo for race duty, the car also receives a roll cage, DPE racing wheels with Toyo Proxes R888 tires, and an ARK lowering suspension. The cabin adds Takata racing bucket seats with harnesses, as well as Katzkin leather upholstery. Bisimoto Engineering, which upgraded the Hyundai Genesis Coupe that’s headed to this year’s SEMA show, also worked its magic under the hood of the Veloster Turbo. A new intake, exhaust, and engine programming bring horsepower from the 1.6-liter turbo-four engine to 250 hp. Enlarged Brembo brakes help bring the car back to a halt.
At the 2012 SEMA show, Hyundai showed a customized Veloster Turbo with 232 hp and snowboard racks on its roof. The standard 2013 Hyundai Veloster Turbo (pictured below) extracts 201 hp from its 1.6-liter turbo-four engine, and starts at $22,895 after destination charges.
