the team would contest select rounds next year and will launch a full season campaign in 2014.

HyperPower™

Nice, i20 body but what kind of turbo charged engine?
Hyundai Accent 1.4 2012
Hyundai Getz 1.1 2009
Suzuki Celerio 1.0 2010
Mitsubishi Galant VR6 1997
Mitsubishi Galant 2.0 1990
Toyota Corona 2.0 1991

HyperPower™

1.6 300HP turbo charged engine. Here comes the good times.

Really stunning WRC i20.

it does look good doesn't it? i've never seen a hyundai that looks like a bruiser. i've always seen their road cars as meh, nice, but this one looks like it's ready for a fight. those wheel arches reminds me of the 206 wrc car of the early 2000's.

HyperPower™

I like the stance and the arches as well but the question is, who's driving it?
Hyundai Accent 1.4 2012
Hyundai Getz 1.1 2009
Suzuki Celerio 1.0 2010
Mitsubishi Galant VR6 1997
Mitsubishi Galant 2.0 1990
Toyota Corona 2.0 1991

Rear kinda reminds me of the Suzuki Swift WRC. But in fairness to Hyundai, they have gone a long way with their styling and have really worked hard on it by hiring very good people to work on their cars.

wonder what's gonna happen to wrc next year with ford and mini pulling out?

DTNS

IMO, the Velocester hatch looks better suited to the role of WRC car.  ::)
