This supercharged sporty version of the compact sedan delivers 275 hp. Pleasure and sensations at the rendezvous.
Hyundai is releasing a supercharged version produced in 600 copies, the i30 N Project C. Nothing has been left to chance to give it a hyper-sporty look. Matt anthracite gray paint, lowered chassis and shell lightened by carbon additions.
It goes from the hood to the mirrors, passing through the sills and the front and rear blades. The 19 inch rims are spectacular. The result is superbly successful without being flashy.
The red and black leather and alcantara bucket seats have a carbon-covered backrest and the red seat belts add a touch of originality and above all sportiness. The interior is decorated with red stitching on the seats and all leather parts and the shiny aluminum gear knob.
The steering wheel covered with alcantara offers a texture favoring a very pleasant handling. Needless to add that the finishes are really neat and the plastics used of very good quality. Each vehicle has a serial number displayed on an aluminum badge on the passenger side.
At the rear, the occupants have not been forgotten. They benefit from a large space for the legs and the bench is ultra-comfortable. The trunk resumes the dimensions of the normal i30 sedan.
This beautiful sports car is powered by a two-liter gasoline engine developing 275 horsepower. This block offers a direct and linear response. It is mated to a hyper-responsive six-speed gearbox with very short travel.
The Launch control function allows you to control the torque at start-up and several driving modes allow you to adapt to the pleasure of the driver. On the steering wheel there are two red buttons.
The one on the right allows the N mode to be engaged. It deactivates the ESC (electronic trajectory control) and activates the double clutch. We find ourselves at the controls of a vehicle ready for the circuit, deprived of most of the active safety systems. In this configuration, it is not to be put in all hands.
The pleasure experienced influences consumption. But aboard this ultra-sporty version, of course, we don’t expect to break records in this area …
