Hyundai Made This RN30 Concept? Believe It

Speaking of bad-ass concept cars from the 2016 Paris Motor Show, look at Hyundai's RN30. As part of its N Performance branch, this particular look into Hyundai's future is exactly what we crave: crazy aggressive aero styling and an ultra low stance, developed around the company's next generation i30 model.

At the heart of the RN30 is a 2.0L turbocharged engine, designed specifically for N production models and said to produce 380ps, thanks to a larger turbo and forged engine components. It also comes equipped with a wet-type dual-clutch transmission and AWD system.

The RN30's engineers made sure to keep the chassis as light as possible by choosing plastic materials developed by BASF as opposed to carbon fiber. They also further reduced the car's center of gravity by moving the seats back and lowering them.

Body enhancements include a widened body (extended 30mm outwards), "floating" overfenders, side splitters, a hood scoop to take more cool air into the engine bay, a rear spoiler to aid in downforce and a rear diffuser to accentuate the dual exhaust tips.

Pop the doors open and upward to reveal a space age interior consisting of race bucket seats, custom built roll cage and a special video camera system that's mounted to custom gimbals that provide image stabilization during driving.

Hopefully we see a production version of the RN30 somewhere down the road, but that remains largely to be seen. Imagine what could be done if this were to fall into the hands of a shop like Bisimoto?
