After playing the teasing game, Hyundai is finally showing us their exciting N 2025 Vision Gran Turismo concept.
It marks the inauguration of Hyundai's N performance division and takes the shape of an ultimate racecar featuring a hydrogen fuel cell system that delivers a combined 871 bhp (650 kW) thanks to the dual fuel cell stacks providing 670 bhp (500 kW) while the super capacitor system pumps out an extra 201 bhp (150 kW) by using energy recuperation while braking. All that power is delivered to the road through four in-wheel motors that according to Hyundai ensure “uncompromised traction.”
It should be an absolute rocket taking into account it weighs just 972 kg (2,142 lbs) thanks to a rigid CFRP monocoque and the lightweight fuel cell stacks that have a compact size. The N 2025 Vision Gran Turismo is billed to have a power-to-weight ratio that matches some of the most exotic supercars out there and it also has a powerful soundtrack thanks to the air blower's turbine that spins at 200,000 rpm which generates a "distinct racecar roar."
Needless to say, the concept was developed primarily for the Gran Turismo 6 video game on PlayStation 3 and it will be available soon as free downloadable content.
