Hyundai i30 N Option show car revealed at Paris Motor Show

The Hyundai i30 N Option show car has been revealed at the Paris Motor Show today hinting at “how Hyundai’s high-performance offer could evolve”.

Hyundai has revealed its i30 N Option show car which debuts a range of potential N accessories. The Korean car maker has announced it will be launching a range of “customisation features” allowing owners to further personalise their N car.

Speaking in Paris, Thomas Schemera, Executive Vice President High Performance Vehicles & Motorsport Division at Hyundai Motor Group, said: “With our N portfolio we are shaking up the competition, and bringing new performance and emotions for our customers. The development of our N vehicles is grounded in Motorsport and our engagement there is the pinnacle of N.

“The new i30 N Line and our i30 N ‘N Option’ show car illustrate our dual approach to customisation, making N available to a wider audience.”

There are 25 “different high-quality exterior and interior individualisation options” showcased on the i30 N Option, according to Hyundai. The exterior parts include, a carbon rear wing carrying the N emblem, a carbon hood with integrated air vents, quad mufflers and the N grille surrounded by a red character line. The wheels are cast lightweight 20-inch rims fitted with semi-slick tyres. The i30 N ‘N Option’ exterior colour is a unique matt paint, created just for the show car…in case you were wondering when you’d be able to buy it.
