COSTA MESA, Calif., Oct. 15, 2012 – Hyundai America's internal design and technical center has created the "Velocity" factory-tuner concept for the company's popular Veloster sport coupe. The Velocity concept proudly debuts at the 2012 SEMA show under the Hyundai banner. Velocity represents a joint effort between the Design and Engineering divisions of Hyundai America Technical Center in Irvine, California.

The Velocity concept expands on all of the original Veloster concept strengths in an aggressive, no-holds-barred factory-racer design language. Huge 19 x 9.0 inch, HRE lightweight satin-charcoal racing wheels, tarmac-scraping lower body kit with generous front and rear brake cooling ducts, lift-reducing rear diffuser, oversized rear wing, and #1 racecar design graphic. While unmistakably racetrack-oriented, the Velocity concept retains the original Veloster silhouette, focusing on exponential performance gains and functional design cues.

"In creating Velocity, we were inspired to take the Veloster's original concept strengths to their fullest expression," said Chris Chapman, head of Hyundai's Irvine, California design center. "Velocity gave our design and engineering teams license to take Veloster far beyond everyday production car limitations."

The 1.6-liter, direct-injected Veloster engine received customized engine modifications by Cosworth, including performance pistons, rods, turbocharger, intercooler, intake manifold, intake-charging design, fuel system and engine management. The new engine boasts more than 400 horsepower and 350 lb.-ft. of torque for explosive acceleration out of bends.

Matching the muscular exterior statement, Velocity suspension and braking modifications handle the acceleration capabilities under hood, with Brembo® 4-piston calipers and two-piece rotors, Bilstein® springs with monotube dampers, and Kumho Ecsta SPT 275/35R19 high performance summer tires. The comprehensive list of Velocity performance enhancements include:

I'm jealous!

I like the low overhang nose and that Hyundai is supporting the Veloster and engaging the tuner market.

But this package doesn't do a lot for me. It's just a collection of aftermarket parts and doesn't show any Hyundai development. And 400hp on the VT chassis is kind of silly.

What would impress me is if it had a Hyundai designed limited slip differential and a McPherson strut rear suspension.

Ugh, that is soooo sexy, but would get me into soooo much trouble. I like my puny 201HP VT too much anyways to let it go.
