Read more about Hyundai Doesn’t Care About Fancy Nurburgring Lap Times at AutoGuide.com.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.
