The Hyundai Yellowcake Veloster Turbo has been revealed ahead of next month’s SEMA motor show.
The Yellowcake Veloster Turbo is an aftermarket accessory package developed by the EGR Group for the quirky three-door hatch that the manufacturer says is “designed specifically for time attack races at night racing circuits” and is “guaranteed to turn heads”.
Although a Veloster might not be the first car to spring to mind when thinking of night racers, there is no doubt the Hyundai will be hard to miss with its custom fluoro yellow paintjob, roof-mounted LEDs, unique headlights and widebody kit.
However Hyundai says the Yellowcake Veloster Turbo is more than a flash paint job, with the car also sporting a custom roll cage, race-tuned suspension and AEM strut brace. The car will be powered by a tuned, 186kW 1.6-litre engine, ride on semi-slick Toyo tyres, and be brought to a stop by “oversized” Brembo brakes.
Inside, the Yellowcake features Takata racing seats and harnesses, and several other (unspecified) Katzkin modifications.
“The Veloster Turbo provides an ideal tuning platform for enthusiasts who want to modify their cars. EGR has created a very special night-focused time attack car that perfectly showcases the Veloster Turbo’s inherently sporty DNA,” said Hyundai America vice president of product planning Mike O’Brien.
The Veloster Turbo will not be alone on Hyundai’s stand; last week the Korean car maker revealed a 746kW version of its Genesis Coupe, also set to be unveiled at SEMA in early November.
