A front wheel drive car with a 1.6L engine tuned near the ragged edge of breaking, likely with a healthy dose of turbo lag. Sounds like fun! NOT!

At least Toyota is moving away from front engine front drive "sporty" cars with the GT86/BRZ...

DUH! I meant to post this one sorry. Still no AWD??




A joint project with Korean aftermarket performance parts manufacturer ARK Performance and several other partners, the Veloster Alpine proves that Hyundai has more than one SEMA vision. This ode to the extreme winter sports lifestyle gets upgrades under the hood and around the interior and exterior.

"Our Veloster Alpine concept reflects the diverse lifestyle versatility we envisioned in the original Veloster concept," Ted Lee, owner of ARK performance, Inc., said in a press release. "This extreme sports coupe concept will appeal to winter sports enthusiasts who love to carve the snow as much as a twisty canyon road."

The car looks like a highway iceberg thanks to its glossy pearl white and blue paint job. While we haven't seen the interior yet, we know that the color scheme continues there, where Alcantara, Italian leather and WeatherTek breathable fabric procured by JPM Coachworks give driver and passengers a cozy cabin to retreat to after a bone-chilling day. The blend of materials was chosen for its durability under wet, GORE-TEX-dripping conditions.

ARK caresses 232 horses out of the 1.6-liter engine with its own performance exhaust system and oil cooler, along with outside upgrades like BTRcc engine bay parts and tuning and a K&N intake system. Other performance enhancements include an ARK performance coilover system, ARK Big Brake Kit and Rays Gramlight 57Xtreme Wheels shod in Nitto INVO tires.

A body kit with bumpers, side skirts, rear wing and fenders enhances aerodynamic performance, and custom headlights and taillights add a distinct set of eyes. A Yakima snowboard rack with included boards and a set of Rally Armor mudflaps make the Alpine a suitable ride for shuttling to the mountain on any powder morning.

The Veloster Alpine will be on display at SEMA, which runs from October 30 to November 2 in Las Vegas.

Methinks Hyundai/ARK need to go back to the drawing board!

I dunno about you guys but I'd rather at LEAST some all seasons instead of Ultra High Performance summer tires on my "powder morning shuttle"!!!

Now a Celica GT4 raised an inch or so with Nokia Hakkapeliittas... and the 3S-GTE can make a decent helping of power. I had an MR2 with almost 300 RWHP running 18 pounds of boost (had a lot of mods but still)

We've already seen what Chrysler and Chevy have in mind for the SEMA Show, and the Velocity gives us a peek into Hyundai's mindset. That mindset is based around some serious pent-up aggression.

"In creating Velocity, we were inspired to take the Velosterís original concept strengths to their fullest expression," said Chris Chapman, head of Hyundaiís Irvine, California design center. "Velocity gave our design and engineering teams license to take Veloster far beyond everyday production car limitations."
A joint project of the design and engineering arms of the Hyundai America Technical Center in Irvine, California, the Velocity gets pushed far beyond production specs with a no-nonsense, asphalt-skimming body kit. The kit includes front and rear brake cooling ducts, a front splitter, a rear diffuser, an oversized rear wing, aero side skirt lips and race car graphics. A set of 19-inch HRE lightweight racing wheels keeps the car from marking up the pavement below. The body kit is designed to boost the car's aerodynamic performance while maintaining the Veloster's overall look.

The Velocity packs plenty of bite with its bark. Cosworth adds a new turbocharger, performance pistons, rods, intercooler and intake manifold. The Velocity also gets a custom exhaust system. The Veloster's 40-mpg (5.8 L/100 km) claim is certainly out the window on the Velocity, but the upgraded 1.6-liter GDI four-cylinder's output is upped to over 400 hp.

Brembo brakes, Bilstein springs with monotube dampers and Kumho high-performance summer tires ensure that the extra power is properly honed. A Katzkin custom suede interior with roll bar and Race-Keeper video GPS data acquisition system keeps the driver engaged with the road or track ahead.

The Velocity will be on display at the SEMA Show, which takes place in Las Vegas from October 30 to November 2.
400hp and FWD - whats the point?
Im not buying it anyways, there is no way on this planet a production 1.6 is going to make 400hp.

Oh and to the earlier poster boasting about a 1ton that does 20mpg, I dont believe you. I can also assure you that my "little" 4 banger makes it up and over vail pass no problems!
