EGR Group is developing a bespoke EGR Night Racer concept derived from the Hyundai Veloster Turbo. The EGR Night Racer is developed specifically for time attack races at night racing circuits. It will be unveiled at the 2013 SEMA Show scheduled to take place on November 5 - 8, 2013. The EGR Night Racer is wrapped in a distinct vivid yellow paint scheme called dubbed Yellowcake, created by EGR in collaboration with the paint experts at PPG and Barry’s Speed Shop.
The EGR Night Racer draws plenty of attention, especially on night racing circuits, thanks to a Wurton roof-mounted LED light bar and custom ONEighty-branded headlights. However, changes for the EGR Night Racer are not only limited to its looks.
Its body has been made more rigid due to the addition of a custom roll cage. The ride height of the EGR Night Race is also race-tuned with an ARK coil-over suspension and AEM strut brace.
The EGR Night Racer’s 1.6-liter engine has been tuned by Bisimoto Engineering to provide up to 250 horsepower of output. Complementing the engine are features like oversized Brembo brakes, DPE 3-piece racing wheels and Toyo semi-slick racing tires.
Mike O’Brien, vice president, product planning, Hyundai Motor America, remarked that the Veloster Turbo provides an ideal tuning platform for enthusiasts “who want to modify their cars.” He remarked that EGR created a “very special night-focused time attack car” that showcases Veloster Turbo’s sporty DNA.
