HYUNDAI INTRODUCES RHYS MILLEN RED BULL RALLYCROSS TEAM, STARRING VELOSTER, AT THE CHICAGO AUTO SHOW
Drivers Rhys Millen and Robbie Maddison Race New Veloster Rally Cars at X Games During the 2011 U.S. Rallycross Championship Series
CHICAGO, Feb. 9, 2011 -- With the next generation of Hyundai buyers eagerly awaiting the upcoming launch of the 2012 Veloster, Hyundai fuels the excitement by teaming with Rhys Millen Racing (RMR) and Red Bull to campaign the car in the high-energy sport of rallycross.
At the Chicago Auto Show, Hyundai Motor America adds the Veloster coupe to its motorsports program with the help of champion race car driver Rhys Millen, who fabricated and will race the first 500-horsepower AWD Veloster rally car in the 2011 U.S. Rallycross Championship. RMR and Hyundai are constructing a second Veloster rally car that will be a shared ride between rally champion Marcus Dodd and world record freestyle motorbike rider Robbie Maddison. Millen and Maddison will drive the Veloster rally cars at Summer X Games. A third Veloster rally car will be constructed to compete in the 2WD class in limited number of U.S. Rallycross Championship events and will be piloted by to-be-announced celebrity drivers.

"We feel the Veloster is a perfect fit for X Games and the U.S. Rallycross Championship series as we expand our motorsports efforts," said Mike O'Brien, vice president, Product and Corporate Planning, Hyundai Motor America. "The all-new 2012 Veloster is a playful, fun to drive car and thanks to Rhys and his team we're excited to introduce it to racing fans ahead of its launch this summer. I teamed up with Rhys' father, Rod, nearly twenty years ago for Hyundai's original Pikes Peak rally program, so it is great to be back in the sport again with his son inspiring a new generation."

Rhys Millen's 750 HP V6 is bred to break Pike's Peak
Rhys Millen will attempt to beat the current "Unlimited Class" World Record
of 10:01.408 & the 10-minute barrier at the Pikes Peak Hill Climb. Last
June, Rhys took a Hyundai Genesis coupe to a class record in the two-wheel
drive Time Attack class with a 12:09.397. This year, Millen wants to take
the overall record back from Nobuhiro "Monster" Tajima, whose held the
record since 2007, and bested Rod Millen's thirteen year old course record.
Millen is aiming to get the first ever sub-10 minute time at Pikes Peak
and he and his team have built a new car dubbed the Genesis PM580, a 1,850
pound, 750 horse power V6 beast is designed specifically to conquer the 156
turns to the top and return the world record to the Millen name.

2013 Hyundai Veloster Turbo Review : MPGomatic
MPGomatic.com puts a six-speed manual 2013 Hyundai Veloster turbo to a grueling 500+ mile test drive. We
switched things up a bit with this review, and have included a demo of the
Blue Max and Eco-Coach features along with our usual 0-60 MPH and fuel
economy testing. It's in HD, as well. :) Big screen and Big MPGs, woo hoo!
The Hyundai Veloster turbo is equipped
with a turbocharged 16-valve Dual-CVVT
1.6-liter inline four-cylinder engine producing 201 horsepower and 195 pound
feet of torque. The intercooled and gasoline direct-injected (GDI) four
banger cranks out more than sixty HP and seventy pound feet of torque over
the naturally-aspirated 2012 Veloster we tested earlier this year.
A six-speed manual transmission is standard in the Veloster turbo, while a six-speed automatic is optional.

Fox Marketing Hyundai Veloster Turbo 370hp@23psi
The main focus of this build was to showcase the reliability, and
performance capability from Hyundai's G4FJ power plant. With a properly
engineered turbo kit this Veloster turbo can consistently provide an
enthusiast with over 370 horsepower. Because the
G4FJ is so strong from the factory, we added a new 845 Motorsports turbo Upgrade to achieve the highest horsepower Veloster in the
WORLD! This turbo kit upgrade features
the BorgWarner EFR turbo which has a
wastegate, and blow off valve built into the housing. To properly and
accurately tune the vehicle, Jay Kim from Seoulful Racing was selected for
his Factory ECU Tuning capabilities. For additional power and durability,
an AEM Water/Meth Injection system was added to keep the G4FJ engine safe
during higher Boost levels mixed
with VP Racing 101 octane performance fuel. Since the car has these types
of power numbers we need serious traction - so a Uniq Performance Strut
brace, Import Shark Chassis bracing matched with ARK Performance coilover
were used. We then hand-built the new front bumper, smoothed out the
factory lines, and added Genesis Fog Lights. Then, we painted the Veloster
BASF R-M Oynx HD Waterborne SkyAqua Pearl which was hand made in the BASF
Refinish color lab. The interior was upgraded with new TAKATA Drift III
4-Point Street Legal belts, Street Pro LE Seats with TAKATA fabric wrapped
rear seats. We hope you enjoy our vision for this new Veloster turbo

--Montlhéry, this 1.58 mile oval track, built in 1924, features banks as
steep as 51 degrees, which is more than double the standard incline of most
NASCAR ovals. Chosen by Ken for this specific reason, the ramp-like banking
proved to be a unique and exciting challenge. The driving physics for the

2012 Hyundai Veloster 6-Speed Start Up, Exterior/ Interior Review
Today viewers, you are witnessing the birth of a new chapter in small car
design, with the introduction of this: the all new 2012 Hyundai Veloster.
While most might say it's just a new body on an old platform, that is where
you're wrong. It's been fitted with some of Hyundai's newest technology,
and styling cues that would boggle the mind!
It brings a new type of body style to our world as well, now known as a 3
door coupe, which is wierd since most coupes are 2 door's. However, with
the Veloster, it incorporates 2 doors into one side of the vehicle, and
only 1 on the driver's side.
It's powered by an all new 1.6L GDi (Gas Direct Injection) I-4 with D-CVVT
(Dual Continuous Variable Valve Timing) which makes 138 hp and 123 lb/ft of
torque. The engine is a bit disapointing since it's pretty much the same as
the new Kia Soul. On that same front however, it does now put it in the 40
MPG club, along with the Elantra, Sonata Hybrid, and Accent. So it's really
the best of all worlds. You get all the looks of a sports car, with the
fuel efficiency of a compact.
Rhys Millen Hyundai Genesis Conquers Pikes Peak - Full Video
The wait is over. You've seen Rhys Millen's class record-setting Pikes Peak
sprint in the Hyundai Genesis Coupe. Now experience the tension and
anticipation as Rhys prepares, practices and executes his record run on
this legendary mountain.
