Hyundai Bringing Veloster ‘Velocity’ Concept To SEMA: Video 16

Hyundai’s Veloster “Velocity” concept

If you like the idea behind Hyundai’s Veloster Turbo but think the Korean automaker could have upped performance a few more notches, chances are that you’ll love the Velocity concept that Hyundai is bringing to this year’s SEMA Show. Like the Track’ster concept shown by family brand Kia at this year’s Chicago Auto Show, the Velocity seems to ask the question, “how far to the performance extreme can we take a production car?”

A collaborative effort between Hyundai America’s Design and Engineering divisions, the Velocity gets the best components available. It’s 1.6-liter turbo engine was pulled and shipped to Cosworth Engineering, which fitted it with new pistons, connecting rods, larger turbos, a bigger intercooler, a revised intake system, a higher-flow fuel system and custom ECU maps, which boosts output to “over” 400 horsepower and 350 pound-feet of torque. Underneath, the Velocity gets Bilstein springs and dampers, Brembo four-piston calipers and 19-inch HRE wheels shod with Kumho Ecsta SPT tires.

Outside, the Velocity wears a racing design motif in a white, red and gray livery with a ghosted Hyundai logo on the doors. The body kit was designed specifically to reduce front and rear lift at speed, and consists of new front and rear fascias, a front splitter, a rear diffuser, side skirts and a basket-handle rear wing.

Inside, Sparco supplied new seat belts, while Race-Keeper provided a video GPS data acquisition system for keeping track of your lap times. CPR installed an integrated roll bar, while Katzkin provided black and red suede for the Velocity’s seats and interior trim.

Like the Track’ster, we seriously doubt the Velocity will see production, but we’re encouraged by the fact that this is the second Cosworth-tuned car Hyundai is showing at SEMA. Could this be the start of an ongoing, performance-related relationship? We certainly hope so.



Hyundai To Offer Performance Tire Option On Veloster 24
Aug
Posted by Kurt Ernst in Automotive, Hyundai, Hyundai Veloster, Hyundai Veloster Turbo, Kurt, News, Tires on 08 24th, 2012

The weak link of any car with sporting intentions, generally speaking, is the tires that it’s saddled with from the factory. When you think like an automaker, this makes sense – adding stickier rubber costs significantly more that cheaper tires purchased in the thousands, and then there’s the issue of customer satisfaction to deal with.

Early Acura NSX buyers filed suit against Honda when they realized that the stock high-performance tries on the NSX only delivered around 10,000 miles of tread life. Since then, manufacturers have shied away from giving us the good stuff, unless its sold in an add-on “summer tire” package.

According to Autoblog, Hyundai will soon offer up a summer tire package for its sporty Veloster. The word comes from none other than John Krafcik, Hyundai Motor America’s President and CEO, who insists that stickier rubber has been in the planning stages for Veloster since the car was released.

For an additional $1,200, Hyundai will sell you a set of Michelin Pilot Super Sport tires (as long as you have the 18-inch wheels), which are capable of 0.94 gs of lateral acceleration, compared to 0.82 gs from the base Kumho Solus tires. Stopping distance on dry pavement is cut from 135 feet at 60 mph to 121 feet, which is probably the best way to sell your significant other on the idea. If you need more justification, consider this: Michelin Pilot Super Sport tires are what we run on our own cars at Automotive Addicts.
