Hyundai revealed the RN30 Concept - a racing machine created to demonstrate the sporting DNA of Hyundai N - at the 2016 Paris Motor Show.

01 Oct 2016 | International News : France



Hyundai Motor unleashed its latest high-performance N concept with the world premiere of the RN30 Concept at the 2016 Paris Motor Show. The motorsport-inspired racing concept is developed to deliver passion and pleasure on the track.

The Electronic Variable Exhaust system provides a surge of aural pleasure by emitting a strong exhaust sound
The RN30's power is supplied by a high-performance 2.0-litre turbocharged engine, under development by Hyundai for N production models, upgraded with an enlarged turbo to increase thrust at full throttle.

To manage the additional power, the engine blocks have been applied by forging parts; instead of casting parts, to increase their durability and resistance. As a result, the RN30 is primed for performance, boasting 375bhp and a maximum torque of 451Nm.

Managing the impressive levels of torque is a wet-type dual-clutch transmission (DCT), delivering quicker responses during gear shifting and direct coupling to provide dynamic acceleration. To manage the car's power while enabling precision driving at high speed, the RN30 is equipped with an all-wheel drive (AWD) system.

The RN30 features specialised high-performance technologies designed to increase excitement for drivers and enable them to tame the most challenging of race tracks. Rev-matching encourages spirited driving by quickly and accurately revising the engine's speed whenever the driver shifts gear while in sport mode. Adding to the sense of thrill for the driver, the Electronic Variable Exhaust system provides a surge of aural pleasure by emitting a strong exhaust sound consistent with the visceral sensations produced by the rapid acceleration.

Other technologies are specifically aimed at enhancing safety and control. The sophisticated Electronic Limited Slip Differential (eLSD) system makes sure each wheel receives sufficient torque, measuring the driving force of the tyres. This helps prevent skidding and ensures fast, precise cornering when navigating high speed curves - allowing drivers to control this powerful racing machine easily, accurately, and confidently.

Hyundai N was launched at the Frankfurt Motor Show in September 2015, bringing to life the company's philosophy for providing engaging and thrilling driving pleasure for its customers. All N models are developed by passionate experts in Namyang - the heart of Hyundai Motor's global R&D network - then pushed to their limits at Nurburgring, the world's most challenging race track. The N logo represents the chicane of a race track - where the balance of cars is proven rigorously.
