N 2025 Vision Gran Turismo
The Hyundai N 2025 Vision Gran Turismo is a conceptual race car
designed to compete in the Gran Turismo video game series. However
that's just one role for the vehicle, as it's also being used to help
promote the all-new 'N' performance sub-brand for Hyundai.
The Hyundai N 2025 Vision Gran Turismo's drivetrain is based on the
world's first mass-produced hydrogen fuel cell system. Total output
for the advanced system is 871 horsepower, with the dual fuel cell
stacks providing 670 horsepower, and the super capacitor system generating
an additional 201 horsepower by using energy regeneration when braking.
The power is delivered to all four wheels via independent in-wheel
The compact, lightweight fuel cell stacks and rigid carbon fiber monocoque
chassis and body help keep the weight down to 2,142 lbs (972 kg).
The styling of the Hyundai N 2025 Vision Gran Turismo concept draws
inspiration from the aerospace sector as well as contemporary racing
As air flows through the hexagonal grille to the boat-shaped underbody
structure, the tube-type underflow air supply duct connected to the
rear minimizes pressure to the underbody to produce maximum downforce.
In addition, the air brakes activate according to speed and brake
usage as well as reduce drag.
The sounds from the Hyundai N 2025 concept's air blower turbine -
that spins at 200,000 rpm, combined with the hydrogen cooling system
and the high-pitched in-wheel motors come together to produce a distinct
race car roar for the car.
