Hyundai Veloster RM15 Concept is Korea’s Mid-Engine Track Toy
Looks like we solved the case of the mystery mid-engine Veloster. When someone caught wind of a Veloster mule running around Korea with an engine in the back, it left us scratching our heads. But with the debut of the RM15 concept in Korea this morning, it all makes perfect sense. Sending power to the rear wheels, the RM15 tips the scales at 2,778 lbs (1,260 kg) thanks to a partial carbon fiber build and a lighter core structure. That diet plan and mid-engine setup give way to a 43 percent front, 57 percent rear weight distribution, meaning it can do things like this: PHOTOS: See More of the 2015 Hyundai Veloster RM15 Concept
The 2.0-liter GDI engine pumps out an impressive 296 horsepower and is handled via a six-speed manual gearbox. When it’s all said and done, the Veloster can sprint to 62 mph in just 4.7 seconds.
There are a few other features including a roll cage, thicker wheels and tires, and a very race-inspired livery. The question of the year, though, is will it ever see its way into production. Just like the previous RM concept, I won’t hold my breath...
