Hyundai Veloster Turbo: Raptor Race Track Day - CarAdvice
http://www.caradvice.com.au/300159/?yt_desc - Read the full review here. What if Hyundai made the Veloster SR turbo more hardcore, gave it extra power, better handling and produced a more rewarding driver’s car? Hyundai Australia has decided to find out with a couple of modified race concepts, and invited CarAdvice.com.au along to see what they've been up to. Ever heard of the Hyundai Veloster-Raptor? How about the Hyundai Veloster Race Concept? Neither had we, until we received a sneak-peek invitation to track test these specially tuned Velosters at a secret test track north of Sydney. Ever since South Korean car giant Hyundai launched the funky Veloster in 2011 (the turbo in 2012), I’ve been a fan of the distinctive hatch with its unusual, asymmetrical door configuration, featuring one large door on the driver’s side and two doors on the passenger side. But the Velocter SR turbo has always been more than clever styling; it’s also quick, good to drive, practical and loaded with kit. A price tag that dips below $32,000 adds another reason to like it. But with its diminutive 1.6-litre turbo petrol engine developing just 150kW of power and 265Nm of torque, it’s one hatch we’ve always considered more warm than hot. Rivals such as the popular Volkswagen Golf GTI ($41,490) and razor-sharp Renault Megane RS265 ($42,640) are considerably more powerful with their larger 2.0-litre engines generating 162kW/350Nm and 195kW/360Nm respectively. But what if Hyundai made the Veloster SR turbo more hardcore, gave it extra power, better handling and produced a more rewarding driver’s car? Apparently the engineering team at Hyundai Australia decided to answer these questions with both the Veloster-Raptor and the Veloster Race Concept. Both cars have been extensively modified to investigate the performance potential of the standard Veloster SR turbo with a view to creating another more potent version for the road. The Raptor has a retuned ECU, Boosting power by 30 per cent to about 195kW, while torque is up 20 per cent to 318Nm using stock internals. Putting this extra grunt to the road is a six-speed manual teamed with a Quaife limited-slip differential. High-performance dampers (Mando RS Valve) and progressive rate King Springs sharpen up the handling, while the 19-inch wheels wrapped in wider 225/40 (up from 215s) Pirelli P-Zero tyres add some grip that’s lacking from the standard Hankooks. Performance brake pads, as well as a cat-back Exhaust system round out the major changes for what promises to be a significantly more involving Veloster than what is currently on offer. Whereas all the upgrades made on the Veloster-Raptor can be approved for road use, according to Hyundai the stripped-out track version gets a complete inventory of race-ready mods and a kerb weight of just 1200 kilograms. The Quaife makes way for a Cuscu LSD, and the brakes are further improved with Alcon four-pot callipers up front and two-pots at the rear. Four-way adjustable suspension and a full CAMS/FIA-approved roll cage make it race-ready for all tarmac rally competitions. Thankfully, Hyundai brought along a standard Veloster SR turbo that we’ll use to both get to know the track – and to put both these concepts into proper perspective. ------------------------------------------------------------- http://CarAdvice.com.au is focused on getting people into the right car for them.
