Video: Hyundai N 2025 Vision Gran Turismo concept showcased at Auto Expo 2016

Hyundai has come up yet another brilliant concept car “Hyundai N 2025 Vision Gran Turismo” With the ‘N’ Vision sub-brand in celebration of Hyundai’s 50th anniversary which comes in 2017. The Hyundai N 2025 Vision Gran Turismo Showcased at Auto Expo 2016.

Hyundai claims the ‘N’ brand characterizes ‘the most thrilling winding road fun’. The Hyundai N 2025 Vision Gran Turismo concept is inspired by the ‘Muroc Dry Lake’ aeronautics and testing ground where pilots and astronauts are trained for space travel. 

The car also retains the Hyundai trademark hexagonal design grill, spotted on regular Hyundai road cars. The concept is based on a rigid CFRP (carbon-fibre reinforced plastic) monocoque structure. Powered by a 650 kW (884 PS/871 hp) hydrogen fuel cell system, the car weighs just 972 kg. Individually, the dual fuel cell stacks produce 500 kW (680 PS/670 hp) and the super capacitor system generates 150 kW (204 PS/201 hp) by brake energy regeneration. Power is sent to all four wheels via independent in-wheel placed motors.

The Hyundai N 2025 Vision GT concept features a unique racing car sound system developed for FCVs at the company’s Sound Design Research Lab. The sound generated by the turbines spinning @2,00,000 rpm coupled with the unique frequency of fuel-cell stacks, the purging sound from the hydrogen cooling system and the high pitched in wheel motor all combine to produce a race car growl, creating music to ears.

It’s unlikely that the concept will be mass produced but don’t get disappoint as you can drive N 2025 Vision Gran Turismo in your PlayStation’s Gran Turismo racing game exclusively and is described as looking like a floating jet fighter. 

Hyundai promises ‘N’ cars will feature powertrains and materials partly derived from lessons learned by the firm’s factory World Rally Championship programme. It’s equipped with air brakes that activate according to speed and also help reducing drag. 

It was a pleasure seeing the Hyundai N 2025 Vision Gran Turismo beauty in front of us, while you can watch it in our youtube videos how incredible the 2025 Gran Turismo is and stay tuned with us as we bring more about the Auto Expo 2016.
