EGR Hyundai Veloster Details:

  • EGR Hyundai Veloster Turbo concept to debut at SEMA Nov, 5-8
  • Night Racer dubbed “Yellowcake”
  • Bisimoto Engineering tunes car to 250hp
  • Designed specifically for time attack at night racing circuits

Last year’s Hyundai booth at SEMA received a lot of foot traffic with the introduction of the special edition 2013 Veloster RE:MIX. This year Hyundai is yet again stepping up its game. The Korean automaker dropped a bomb earlier this month announcing its partnership with Bisimoto Engineering to create a 1,000hp Hyundai Genesis Coupe for the 2013 SEMA show in Las Vegas. Now, a second concept car has been announced: The EGR Night Racer Hyundai Veloster Turbo developed by aftermarket specialists EGR Group.

The custom EGR Night Racer concept is based on the 1.6L 4-cylinder Hyundai Veloster Turbo, which made its inception in 2012. Stock, the engine produces 201hp and 195 lb-ft of torque. Thanks to Bisimoto Engineering, the engine now pumps out 250hp. The racecar is designed specifically for time attack races at night racing circuits. The car, dubbed “Yellowcake” because of its custom yellow paint scheme also features a Wurton roof-mounted LED light bar and custom ONEighty-branded headlights.

A roll cage was added, along with ARK coilover suspension and an AEM strut brace. Additionally, the racecar features oversized Brembo brakes, DPE 3-piece racing wheels and Toyo semi-slick racing tires.

“Veloster Turbo provides an ideal tuning platform for enthusiasts who want to modify their cars,” said Mike O’Brien, vice president, product planning, Hyundai Motor America. “EGR created a very special night-focused time attack car that perfectly showcases Veloster Turbo’s inherently sporty DNA.”
