When it comes to sports cars, MORE is always a possibility, so Hyundai’s N performance division took their awesome little hot hatch known as the Veloster N and moved the engine and drivetrain behind the seats, and gave it 390hp, and tricked it out for the track. Can you imagine if they decided to produce this thing?
We’ve always loved the sporty and playful looks of the Hyundai Veloster. Now its performance lives up to its looks thanks to a powerful 250 or 275hp twin-turbo engine, track-tuned suspension, a limited-slip diff, and more.

The Korean 3-door hot hatch we deserve. With former BMW “M” boss Albert Biermann leading the charge, the Veloster N gets a 2.0L turbo-4 with 275 hp, 260 lb-ft. of torque, high-flow dual exhaust, a 6-speed rev-match manual, sport suspension and brakes, and a limited-slip diff.
In 1914, Ernest Shackleton and team set out to cross Antarctica by boat. They ran into ice, and were stranded for 634 days. He helped save his entire crew, but never finished his mission. 100 years later, his great-grandson completed the task in a tricked-out Hyundai Sante Fe.
One of the many tricked out vehicles slated headed to the 2016 SEMA show, this special off-road SUV has been blessed with a nitrous-boosted 3.3L V6, and a jacked-up suspension with massive wheel articulation and ground clearance, 35″ tires and 17″ beadlock wheels.
