Hyundai Motorsport revealed a new addition to its range of cars TCR offered to client computers: Hyundai elantra n tcr, which was designed and built by the department of Customer Racing of the company.
The Elantra N TCR made its public debut at the Beijing Auto Show after a busy first trimester of testing, during which he has already completed 5.000 kilometers travel.
This new member of Hyundai's TCR family, which joins the i30 N TCR y Veloster N TCR, started from a blank sheet of paper, allowing designers and engineers in the Customer Racing department to take full advantage of the Elantra's chassis and sedan body to optimize the design.
They were also able to apply the experience gained with previous models, something that allowed him to create a better overall racing package.
In accordance with TCR regulations, the Elantra N TCR is front-wheel drive and powered by a two-liter turbocharged engine derived from a stock engine. The car will share the same six speed gearbox operated by pallets than the other TCR designs of the brand.
Hyundai developed the speed and long-distance packages in parallel. For that he used the experience of the Italian Gabriele tarquini, who represents the brand in the WTCR.
“There are a lot of small changes that teams and drivers will really appreciate, such as improvements to the steering system over previous models. Clearly, the Elantra N TCR is much bigger, but in the handling there are no differences ”, highlighted the ex F1.
