Hyundai RN30 to preview upcoming i30 N production hot hatch

Hyundai will be bringing something special to the 2016 Paris Motor Show.

Essentially a preview of the upcoming i30 N hot hatch, the concept car will feature an aggressive bodykit, along with wide wheel arches that highlight the car's stance.

According to Hyundai, the RN30 is a motorsport-inspired racing concept. Up front it gets sharp-looking headlights, huge hexagonal grill and large foglights. It also has a lower and wider stance for improved high speed stability and cornering.

Hyundai added that the concept's aim is to deliver passion and pleasure on the track for everybody. It features a purposeful aerodynamic design and specialized high-performance technologies which provides high-speed performance.

The concept was made possible in close collaboration with Hyundai Motorsport (HMSG), Hyundai Motor Europe Technical Center (HMETC) and Hyundai Motor’s Performance Development & High Performance Vehicle Division.

Two months ago, our spies were able to snap new photos of Hyundai's upcoming hot hatch, the i30 N. Slated to be released in 2017, the i30 N will be powered by a turbocharged 2.0-liter engine that could produce between 243 – 263 PS. It will also be equipped with a more sensitive mechanical power steering, stiffer engine mounts and a new front axle knuckle for better cornering ability.

The Hyundai N Concept RN30 will make its world debut together with the new generation Hyundai i30 and the new i10 at the 2016 Paris Motor Show on September 29.
