Hyundai will be showcasing its N 2025 Vision Gran Turismo in the Delhi Auto Expo in the month of February 2016.
The Hyundai N 2025 Vision Gran Turismo was created to inspire the passion of ‘N’, the high performance sub-brand in celebration of Hyundai’s 50th anniversary which comes in 2017. This exciting machine offers a peek into the brand’s next-generation high-performance vehicles. Hyundai Gran Turismo also shows the unique brand characteristics of the N performance sub-brand, ‘the most thrilling winding road fun’. The “N” sub-brand has become known to the world through Hyundai Motor’s WRC participation which started in 2014.
Vision #1 High-performance, yet eco-friendly
Hyundai Gran Turismo powertrain is based on world’s first mass-produced Hyundai hydrogen fuel cell in 2013. The total system output is 650kw(884PS). The dual fuel cell stacks provide 500kw(680PS), and the super capacitor system generates an additional 150kw(204PS) by using energy regenerated when braking
This remarkable power comes from an eco-friendly system that’s optimally delivered through four high-powered independent in-wheel motors, which provide uncompromised traction.
Vision #2 The ultimate future design to boost the high-performance technology
The N 2025 Vision Gran Turismo concept gets its inspiration from aeronautics, more specifically from the tests performed at Rogers Dry Lake (formerly Muroc Dry Lake) where pilots and astronauts trained, risking their lives for the pursuit of space travel (as seen in the Hollywood blockbuster ‘The Right Stuff’).
The innovative and audacious spirit shown at Muroc, which was once a dry lake bed in this area, was the source of inspiration and motif for the design of the Hyundai N 2025 Vision Gran Turismo. That’s how Hyundai N 2025 Vision Gran Turismo gets its nickname, ‘Muroc’.
Vision #3 Special sound to awake all your senses
The sounds from the air blower’s turbine that spins at around 200,000 rpm, the unique frequency of fuel cell stacks, the purging sound from the hydrogen cooling system and the high-pitched in-wheel motor harmoniously combine to produce a distinct race-car rumble, fully engaging the driver.
So the Hyundai Gran turismo will be the centre of attraction for the Korean giant at the Delhi Auto Expo 2016. It is previously exhibited in the Frankfurt Motor Show 2015.
