Hyundai has created a mid-engined hatchback.
Hyundai showed a mid-rear-drive hatchback RM16 N (Racing Midship 2016) – its variants manufacturer produces the past three years. The car is built as an “experimental laboratory” to test technologies, which are worked in the unit N, engaged in “charged” models. One of these innovations was active aerodynamics.
Double concept sports car is equipped with a 300-horsepower two-liter turbo engine with direct fuel injection and a six-speed manual transmission. At the heart of the machine there is an aluminum space frame with body panels made of plastic, reinforced with carbon fiber. In this model elements of previous successful modifications of Hyundai, such as Hyundai Accent headlight bulb, are used.
Weight distribution on axes is 43:57 in favor of the rear axle.
One of the new technologies that Hyundai will test on this concept, has become a supercharger with an electric drive. In addition, the car has received exhaust system with adjustable sound, electronically controlled limited-slip differential and adjustable rear spoiler, which automatically adjusts the angle of attack depending on road conditions.
