October 2, 2018 – At this year’s Paris Motor Show, Hyundai Motor is celebrating the world premiere of its ultimate performance show car: the i30 N ‘N Option’. Presenting the vision of possible future N accessories, the show car gives a first glimpse of how Hyundai’s high-performance offer could evolve. With the new N Option to be launched in the near future, the company aims to provide a large amount of customisation features to driving enthusiasts who want to make their car more unique.
“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,” says Thomas Schemera, Executive Vice President High Performance Vehicles & Motorsport Division at Hyundai Motor Group. “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.”
The i30 ‘N Option’ showcases in total 25 different high-quality exterior and interior individualisation options. The exterior parts include, for example, a carbon rear wing carrying the N emblem, a carbon hood with integrated air vents, thrilling quad mufflers and the N grille surrounded by a red character line. Another highlight in style and performance are the wheels with casted lightweight 20-inch rims fitted with high-performance semi-slick tyres. The i30 N ‘N Option’ exterior colour is a unique matt paint, specially created for the show car.
In the interior, black carbon accents reappear along the dashboard as well as around the air vents, door handles and on the steering wheel’s bottom which has been covered with high-quality Alcantara. In addition, the upper dashboard and the light weight sport bucket seats with a characteristic red longitudinal line are available in Alcantara. The ultimate performance look is completed with sport pedals, a dynamic-looking gear shift and several other interior customisation options.
