Hyundai has announced its plans of building a vehicle test center at the Nürburgring track in Germany.

The construction is already in progress and requires an investment of 5.5M EUR (4.5M GBP). All tests done at this facility will be used by the company's R&D center in Rüsselsheim to help with the development of Hyundai's Euro-spec models. The vehicle test center facility consists of a 3,050m² building which has direct access to the circuit.

At its research and development center in Rüsselsheim, Hyundai has designed, engineered and tested some of its most popular models, including the i30, ix35 and i40. Last year 95 percent of the 440,000 cars sold in Europe were created there.
