There's now an even harder cored Hyundai Veloster N

Hyundai's given us even more reason to sob about the lack of UK Velosters

Hyundai’s doing SEMA right. After showing us a teaser of what’s basically a Veloster monster truck, it's revealed this Veloster N Performance, its quirky 3+1-door coupe thingy with a heap of seriously nerdy fast bits attached, turning it into a right tearaway.

At its core is the Veloster N – basically a stateside i30N hot hatch with weirder doors – but a whole shedload of seriousness has been thrown at it. And it’s all stuck.

So there’s hardcore coilover suspension. Much chassis bracing. Seriously forceful Alcon brakes. Forged OZ wheels. Pirelli P Zero Corsa tyres. A new cat back exhaust system. If you thought the current N range was loud and firm, you’ve seen nowt yet.

Betraying the additional boisterousness is a tougher, orange-trimmed body kit (just look at that wing!), some supreme Sabelt seats (a mixture of carbon and Alcantara, the official materials of quick cars) and a new, more tactile gear knob. Think of it as an i30N Project C for our friends in America.

So, this or the monster truck?
