Leading up to the Paris Motor Show coming up next week, Hyundai has sent out a teaser image of what the Hyundai N Concept RN30, the high performance version of the next generation Hyundai i30. This won’t be like the RM16 concept that Hyundai shared some time ago, which is a radical mid-engined hot hatch. But the teaser image shared by the Korean car manufacturer suggests the concept will surely turn some heads, especially in the biennial Mondial de l’Automobile (Paris Motor Show). We think Hyundai aims to put the motor show’s mainstays like Citroen, Renault, and Peugeot on notice.
According to the press release from Hyundai:
The motorsport-inspired racing concept is developed to deliver passion and pleasure on the track for everybody. Based on the New Generation Hyundai i30, the RN30 was born as a racing machine, developed in close collaboration with Hyundai Motorsport (HMSG), Hyundai Motor Europe Technical Center (HMETC) and Hyundai Motor’s Performance Development & High Performance Vehicle Division. The striking concept is distinguished by its purposeful aerodynamic design and specialized high-performance technologies that deliver thrilling high-speed driving.
We’ll see, Hyundai… We’re still upset with you killing off your only rear wheel drive sports coupe, the Hyundai Genesis, after only a short six years. We hope this concept makes it out soon and arrives in the States!
