A vivid yellow paint scheme will be the most visible evidence of the customization of a Veloster Turbo that Hyundai and EGR Group will build for the 2013 SEMA show in Las Vegas, according to an announcement from Hyundai on Sept. 30.
EGR Group, a leading OEM and aftermarket accessory supplier for nearly four decades, is developing a custom EGR Night Racer concept based on the Hyundai Veloster Turbo that is guaranteed to turn heads.
The custom-developed color, dubbed Yellowcake, was created by EGR in collaboration with the paint experts at PPG and Barry’s Speed Shop. The racecar, designed specifically for time attack races at night racing circuits, will be showcased at the 2013 SEMA show in Las Vegas, November 5-8.
Sporting that color and with the addition of a Wurton roof-mounted LED light bar and custom ONEighty-branded headlights, the EGR Night Racer will be impossible to miss, particularly on night racing circuits.
Other modifications beyond the cosmetics will make the EGR Night Racer a true performern. They include body rigidity being increased significantly with the addition of a custom roll cage, and ride height race-tuned with an ARK coil-over suspension and AEM strut brace.
Bisimoto Engineering provided powertrain tuning expertise, boosting the 1.6-liter output to 250 horsepower, while oversized Brembo brakes, DPE 3-piece racing wheels and Toyo semi-slick racing tires ensure the power is kept under precise control.
“Veloster Turbo provides an ideal tuning platform for enthusiasts who want to modify their cars,” said Mike O’Brien, vice president, product planning, Hyundai Motor America. “EGR created a very special night-focused time attack car that perfectly showcases Veloster Turbo’s inherently sporty DNA.”
