Hyundai Gives Veloster N TCR Racing Pedigree With 350 Horses

"The all-new 2019 Veloster and Veloster N are playful, fun-to-drive cars, and thanks to Bryan and his team we're excited to introduce them to racing fans across North America". As Hyundai noted, the vehicle shares around 85 percent of its core components with the championship-winning i30 N TCR.

The Veloster N TCR is powered by a turbocharged 2.0-liter direct-injection four-cylinder that makes 350 horsepower at 7,000 rpm and 332 lb-ft of torque at 3500 rpm. The four is mated to a six-speed manual transmission or an optional seven-speed dual-clutch automatic. Life Racing handled the ECU, the power management system and the instrumentation. Behind the Hyundai Motorsport 10x18 wheels, two-piston calipers up front and six-piston Brembo calipers in the rear handle braking. The Veloster N TCR will also be eligible for racing in the Blancpain World GT Challenge series.

The Veloster N TCR is priced at the equivalent of about $155,000, with Bryan Herta Autosport providing sales as well as technical assistance and support for USA customers.

Oklahoma's Kyler Murray declares for the NFL Draft
Murray has been projected to go anywhere from the first round to the third round in April's National Football League draft. Murray threw for 4,361 yards, rushed for 1,001 yards and finished with 54 total touchdowns for the Sooners in 2018.

Hyundai admits that the move works well for marketing its cars.

The Elantra GT N Line offers 18-inch wheels, summer tires (for manual-equipped cars), a handful of N badges inside and out, sport seats, and unique front and rear bumpers.

The 10-round IMSA Michelin Pilot Challenge kicks off January 25 at Daytona and concludes October 11 at Road Atlanta. (Oh, and the regular Elantra GT carries over unchanged for 2019.) Hyundai says that this new Elantra GT "signals more N Line models to come" from the brand, so we wouldn't be surprised to see, say, an N Line version of the Veloster that bridges the gap between the Veloster Turbo and the Veloster N. Now Hyundai, can you just bring us over that glorious i30 N? (On the flip side, the Veloster N TCR will be available in countries where the production auto isn't.) The Veloster N TCR will be going up against race cars like the Audi RS3 LMS TCR, the Honda Civic Type R TCR, and the Volkswagen GTI TCR. Bryan Herta Autosport, the designated Veloster N TCR retailer in the USA, will race two cars in the upcoming season. They will go against the likes of the Honda Civic Type R TCR, the Volkswagen GTI TCR, and the Audi RS3 LMS TCR. Both the Veloster N TCR and the i30 N TCR can be backed by Hyundai with this plan. We have updated the story with photos of the Veloster N TCR and some additional information. The first customer deliveries are slated to begin in March and pricing starts at $154,905 (£120,165 / €135,000) excluding shipping from Germany.
