If you’re waiting to hear how the Hyundai Veloster N does around the Nurburgring, you might not find out anytime soon.

Despite spending months developing the Veloster N at the Nurburgring, the Korean automaker isn’t worried about breaking records or bragging about any sort of lap time. And that’s not because the car isn’t capable of being fast around the track, it’s because the Veloster N wasn’t developed for the sole purpose of setting a record. If you’re a fan of The Grand Tour (or Top Gear before Clarkson’s punch was heard around the world), you’ve likely heard the hosts talk about how cars specifically tuned for Nurburgring lap times are terrible to drive. Sharing the same sentiment is Albert Biermann, who is the president and head of Performance Development and High Performance Vehicle Division, Hyundai Motor Group.

I call BS .A car in this day and age can have multiple maps and suspension settings controlled by electronics that can be set on the fly .When a car maker takes such a stance on performance numbers not having any importance in it's brand it is because they (Hyundai) do not posses the know how to do so , period .

You would think that Hyundai after RMR racing won many races and won noted championships with Gen Coupe platform, that Hyundai would learn from it and implement some of the winning combinations used by RMR such as adding a turbo V6 to the Gen Coupe platform instead of Kia coming out with a heavier Stinger sedan platform,dumb move .It further shows South Korea just does not get it .Trying to Jump into the performance luxury brand when it would have did much better with a twin V6 turbo Gen Coupe .Idiots
