Hyundai has taken the wraps off the Veloster Midship concept this week in South Korea at the Busan Motor Show.
In charge of development was the same team that worked on the i20 WRC and now they have created a two-seater Veloster featuring a rear mid-engine layout. The power unit has been installed right after the rear seats within the wheelbase to provide a better weight distribution which should improve handling and make the car more agile around the corners.
The engine in question is a turbocharged 4-cylinder, 2.0-liter Theta GDI gasoline unit developing 300 PS (220 kW). The Veloster Midship has also gained a lighter aluminum suspension as well as a strengthened chassis to create what the South Korean marque describes as being a "mini supercar."
Sadly, for the moment there aren't any plans to put the concept into production.
Also at the Busan Motor Show in South Korea, Hyundai is currently showcasing the facelifted Grandeur and the all-new AG large luxury sedan.
