Hyundai Plans for Frankfurt Show Include Next i20 WRC & N 2025 Vision GT
Half a month from now, Germany will be welcoming automotive companies and fans from around the world to the 2015 Frankfurt Motor Show. As summer is a lull from auto show season, the Frankfurt expo gives automakers, including Hyundai, an event to look forward to.
Hyundai will unveil its plans to jump on the Vision Gran Turismo train of concept vehicles being released by practically every major automotive brand. It’s begun teasing its model–called the Hyundai N 2025–which will be physically revealed at the 2015 Frankfurt Motor Show.
The name is indicative of Hyundai’s renewed emphasis on its N (Namyang) performance division, which will be highlighted at the European show.
Little is know about Hyundai N 2025 Vision Gran Turismo, except that it will be ridiculously stylish and available for virtual test drives via the Gran Turismo world–much like other Gran Turismo concepts we’ve seen from Chevrolet, Infiniti, and Mazda. This concept car is supposedly filled with cutting-edge technology from the brand and will be functionally engineered, despite never reaching mass production. It’s unknown if the N 2025 will follow the brand’s Fluidic Sculpture design.
In addition, due to the brand’s success in the 2014 World Rally Championship season, Hyundai is planning to reveal its plans for the latest i20 WRC racer. The preview of this rally car based on the New Generation i20 is sure to stir excitement before its debut during the 2016 FIA World Rally Championship at Rallye Monte Carlo.
There will also be another concept car on display at Frankfurt–the mid-engine RM15 which we saw in Seoul.
Look for these Hyundai models to hit the stage on September 15th.
