The letter N continues to spread in the Hyundai model range. After the i30, the i20
and the Kona now also have corresponding versions, outside of Europe there are
also Veloster and Elantra as N. This development should undoubtedly please
petrolheads and performance fans, after all these are the powerful top models. The
example of the i20 N shown here received extensive customization with, among
other things, high-quality Barracuda Racing Wheels.
In addition to the chip tuning provider and Barracuda or JMS Fahrzeugteile, Eibach
and Schwabenfolia were also involved in the conversion of the small hot hatch into a
RaceChip show car as part of a joint project. The car sits on a set of Shoxx rims: the
JDM-style wheels with a matt bronze finish measure 8×18 inches all round. The
mounted Michelin tires have dimensions 215/40R18. The appropriate lowering of the
body by 35 millimeters was brought about by means of lowering springs.
Of course, RaceChip achieved an increase in performance. The power of the 1.6liter
turbo four-cylinder increased by almost 25 percent with the GTS tuning box, so that instead of the factory 204, almost 250 hp are now available.
The maximum torque even increases from 275 to around 350 Nm. Last but not least, the specialists from Schwabenfolia took care of the striking design full foiling of the powerful Korean.
Stunning videos of Barracuda are available on the Barracuda Racing Wheels
YouTube channel or interactively on the barracuda.wheels Instagram profile. The
alloy wheels are available from the extensive Barracuda wheel range in car
dealerships or well-stocked tire and specialist shops.
