Hyundai Veloster For Real?

September 13, 2007

The Hyundai Veloster is one of the Frankfurt Motor Show’s more striking concept cars. But according to the company it’s not as outlandish as you might think and is a real production possibility.


A spokesman for the Korea firm explained: “The Hyundai Tiburon will be replaced next year with a new larger model, currently known by its development codename BK. It’s mainly for the U.S. market and will be powered by a V-6 engine.”


Designed to go head to head with the likes of Nissan’s 350Z and with a convertible version is a distinct possibility, it’s still be evaluated about whether the car would come to Europe.


But with most of the current Tiburons sold in Europe being the 2.0-liter four-cylinder model rather than the 2.7-liter V-6, the company is using the Veloster as a way of sounding out the idea of a smaller two-seater to sit below the new Tiburon.


The Veloster name is a combination of the words velocity and roadster. The car is designed to appeal buyers in their twenties.
