Updated With Video, Tech Specs (below gallery) and Frankfurt reveal images
Well good morning, gorgeous!
Hyundai just dropped four teaser images of its upcoming supercar concept: the N 2025 VGT.
Smartly using the Gran Turismo concept platform to make an actual, real-world prototype! It is surprising that a few of the Vision GT concepts do not appear more on auto show circuits, or even outside their CAD-CAM design files in some cases. Locking the concepts in the game seems like a missed opportunity for real branding, right?
The Hyundai fantasy hypercar will feel very real in the flesh thanks to a spearheading the “N” brand launch. Hyundai’s “N” is set to become like BMW’s M or Lexus’s F.
The Hyundai N sub-brand is teased ever so slightly on the mid-mounted engine cover of the VGT concept. Overall, the one-seat layout, massive vertical fin and overall aerodynamics look like a credible 2017 or 2018 LMP1 or LMP2 car. These are usually some of the fastest in the GT6 game, as in real life.
The N brand for Hyundai is the big news for sporty production cars in the future — perhaps starting with the next Genesis Coupe in the next year or so.
Just as the F for Lexus specials references the Fuji racetrack, the Hyundai N is a nod to the Nurburgring.
Will the new Hyundai N 2025 be zinging around the Green Hell somewhere outside a PlayStation? Frankfurt is just down the road…. so it is definitely possible!
Realistically, the halo hypercar is a statement of intent versus an actual production car. From what we can see, however, the new Hyundai N 2025 VGT might be the coolest Korean supercar concept ever when it launches in a few weeks for the IAA motor show.
Hyundai N 2025 Vision Gran Turismo Revealed
Ahead of the Frankfurt Motor Show to be held from the 17th of September in Germany, Hyundai has revealed the “Hyundai N 2025 Vision Gran Turismo” and its full scale model. This car will be coming exclusively to PlayStation®’s Gran Turismo video game series.
The Hyundai N 2025 Vision Gran Turismo powertrain is based on world’s first mass-produced Hyundai hydrogen fuel cell system, highlighting Hyundai Motor’s passion for performance and sustainability. The total system output is 650 kW (871 HP), with the dual fuel cell stacks providing 500 kW (670 HP), and the super capacitor system generating an additional 150 kW (201 HP) by using energy regeneration when braking. This remarkable power is delivered through four high-powered independent in-wheel motors, which provide uncompromised traction and immediate response.
