2020 Hyundai i30 N Project C

    Sports car are suppose to be light. The lighter they are the better the performance is. When Hyundai revealed the i30 N world was impressed, but Hyundai knew it can do better. And the result has been revealed today at the 2019 Frankfurt Motor Show.

    While it delivers the same amount of power as the standard i30 N: 273 horsepower and 260 pound-feet of torque, it is significantly lighter. Hyundai managed to take down a total of 50 kg (110 lbs).

    The first 22 kilos came from a new set of 19-inch forged OZ Racing wheels; the next 7.2 kilos from the use of a carbon fiber reinforced plastic hood, the new side sills each save 499 grams, while the new CFRP diffuser saves another 386 grams. Another 4.66 kilos were saved by replacing the steel rear wheel hangers (knuckles) with new aluminum ones, while the last 7.5 kilos come by using set of manually operated Sabelt competition-spec bucket seats with CFRP backings.

    With all this changes the sprint from 0 to 62 mph goes from 6.1 seconds to 6.0 seconds, while top speed remains at 155 mph.

    The Hyundai i30 N Project C will be limited to only 600 units. Prices will be announced closer to market launch.
