We’ve seen our fair share of mid-engraved Hyundai concepts, starting with the Veloster midship since 2014, followed a year later by the RM15 with substantial weight loss.
The South Korean brand did not take off as more concepts with the engine in later years were demonstrated at the Los Angeles Auto Show, representing the latest development with RM19 in later years.
The efforts will not go in vain as all the time and money invested in the ambitious sports car project will be activated in one or two years, when Hyundai will launch a production vehicle featuring a mid-engraved layout.
In an interview with Car and Driver in LA this week by a company spokesperson, it was revealed that he “Bayman doesn’t do these things,” about the company’s R&D boss, Albert Bison [for kicks only [concept] does not do.
C&D says the road-going model would hold for the Veloster-based RM19, but without the crazy aero and beef.
The Hyundai representative said “it won’t look unsatisfying”, but some details will be given below to make the mid-engined sports car more feasible for a production model.
The standalone N model and the Halo car for Hyundai’s performance lineup are currently L.A.,
Which packs 390 horsepower from a turbocharged 2.0-liter petrol engine, adapted from a TCR-spec race car.
The two-seater, two-door coupe sends engine power to the rear wheels via a six-speed sequential gearbox similar to a TCR race car, although Hyundai has used the Veloster N TCR or mechanic-related i30 N TCR is explicitly not mentioned.
With a top speed of 0 to 60 mph in less than four seconds and a high rate of 155 mph (250 km / h), the RM19 is seriously fast and is expected to produce its performance equivalent to these performance numbers.
