Bespoke Hyundai i30 N showcases full N Option potential

October 2, 2018

Hyundai is using the 2018 Paris motor show to unveil a new show car based on the i30 N that showcases a range of unique N Option accessories that could become available on the market in the future.

The company has been hinting for a while now that it will soon offer custom, aftermarket-like options through developments made by N division. And now we get to see the full potential of what could become available. In fact, Hyundai confirms N Option parts will be launched in the “near future” that provide a range of “customisation features” for driving enthusiasts.

For this i30 N show car, it has everything. There’s a set of casted 20-inch lightweight wheels with semi-slick tyres, a carbon fibre bonnet with special vents, a bespoke quad-outlet exhaust system, unique N grille with red highlights, and a carbon rear wing.

Inside, a range of black carbon accents have been added to the dashboard and around the door handles for that sporty look, with matching carbon highlights for the steering wheel which is also wrapped in Alcantara for extra hands-on grip. A set of sports pedals and a racy gear shifter complete the package.

Speaking about the show car and the upcoming N Option possibilities, Thomas Schemera, executive vice president of High Performance Vehicles & Motorsport at Hyundai Motor Group, said:

“With our N portfolio we are shaking up the competition, and bringing new performance and emotions for our customers. The development of our N vehicles is grounded in motorsport and our engagement there is the pinnacle of N. The new i30 N Line and our i30 N ‘N Option’ show car illustrate our dual approach to customisation, making N available to a wider audience.”

We look forward to seeing a whole range of special accessories and personalisation options for the i30 N in the near future. Stay tuned.
