hello everyone,

i thought that I would introduce our company our our veloster turbo.

we are a custom shop in sydney australia and we were commisioned to build this car by Hyundai Australia for the Australian International Motorshow. i have been wanting to add photos up for weeks now, but as it was only debuted this morning, I am only allowed to now.

I hope that you all like it (some of you may not) but it was built to firstly showcase the tuning potential as a street car, and secondly to show prospective purchasers the potential to add certain highlights and looks and performance gains with bolt on mods.

we have had sponsors from SounDesign for their PowerBass audio gear, Leffler leather, Xforce exhausts (soon to be available as an off the shelf turbo back stainless steel item) and Rota Wheels.

the car was debuted with Australian Featherweight female boxer Lauryn Eagle as their face to the car to go with their slogan "Sexy gets angry". and it seems to be working.

an interesting point is that this car has so far been the most photographed car at teh show during the show setup and media release.

Hyundai Australia also commisioned a rally spec Veloster Turbo which was built and will be used in upcomming races. I will get specs and pics of this soon as it was built by another shop.

with some great help and support of Mike from Importshark as he supplied specs and pictures of various coilover kits and ultimately recommended the NGM set. He also supplied the cross drilled and slotted rotors, but as our australian version uses 310mm discs from factory, the 290mm discs from him are slightly smaller. but being such a great guy and he has excellent company morals, he is helping us to source a 310mm set which will also be available to the rest of his customers.

below is a list of the modifications which we done.

i will aim to put more pics up especially after the professional photos shoots.

some more pics.

pardon the poor quality of them as most pics were taken from my phone or at night time while we built it


i do have some professional photos, but I am awaiting approval from Hyundai before I release them.

Please let me know what you all think

before you ask, the wheels that we built the car around were the 18x9.5 Rota Grids with a 35 offset. but due to getting damaged in transit to the show, we had to buy a set of Tenso R wheels and paint them. so that is why the wheels are different at the show.

Very nice job! When I see projects like this it confirms that I will not be able to keep my car stock like I promised my wife I would.

Congratulations, the ride looks fantastic, mate!
Couple of questions:
1. Did you dye the leather inserts to make them orange or is it all new upholstery?
2. What did you use to turn the accented pieces to that magnificent and smooth looking glossy orange?
3. Exhaust. Looks bitchin' sticking out like that, what did you use here or is it completely custom? Sound clips/video?
Thanks in advance!

thanks for the love guys.

VeeTee - the leather is actually a leather from a supplier here is Australia called Leffler Leather. they supplied all of the leather for teh car including the soft black, perforated black and the orange.

the pieces were sanded smooth, then painted in 2K solid orange. we did not need to hifill the pieces as they are fairly smooth from factory.

the exhaust is a custom one off built by a local company called Xforce. They made the exhaust from the turbo back. they are in the process of making the exhaust for worldwide disctribution now, so it should be available soon. I have spoken to Mike from Import shark and once they are ready hopefully he can sell them from his site. Based on other exhausts from this company, the whole system should retail for around $1000 in stainless steel, but price is still to be confirmed.
the system will utilise the factory exhausts tips, but we removed those and welded on some of their tips whcih could also be done to any of your cars

i will get videos up soon.

You should get the headlights to be RGB LED'd, too :tongue-new:

Very nice, very clean. The way it should be done. Good job.

once we get the car back to use at car shows etc, then yes i will post up a video of the exhaust. but please note that our exhaust runs one muffler compared to the 2 that will be sold with the bolt in exhaust from xforce. so naturally it is abit louder.

and yes this car will be going to the melbourne motor show

Regardless of whether someone likes or doesnt like the looks of the car, any real enthusiast can appreciate the effort that has gone into transforming that car into what it now is. Job well done mate :) Hopefully this is the start of something big for the Velosters aftermarket accessory market in Australia
