Hyundai has showcased its new N sub-brand at the Frankfurt Motor Show.
The carmaker says its N cars will focus on performance, with new powertrains and lightweight materials. Its first models include the Generation i20 WRC rally car, and the RM15 and N 2025 Vision Gran Turismo concepts.
The most exciting of the N models shown off at the IAA is one that will only exist in the digital realm. Described by Hyundai as the ultimate concept car, the N 2025 Vision Gran Turismo has been designed exclusively for PlayStation’s Gran Turismo racing game and is described as looking like a floating jet fighter.
Its powertrain is said to be based on the world’s first mass-produced hydrogen fuel cell. Each wheel of the 2025 Vision Gran Turismo has its own independent motor.
