Veloster Street Turbo Special Edition

Ok so it’s no big secret that the Hyundai Veloster Turbo is one of my favourite cars and one car I would gladly park in my garage so you can imagine how excited I was the other day to find out that Hyundai is releasing a a special edition “Street” Veloster Turbo.
Featuring RAYS Gram Lights alloy wheels and exclusive Dazzling Blue exterior paint with Phantom Black exterior hight lights the Veloster Street Turbo looks mighty damn good.
I could probably go on and on and on and on and oh you get the picture about the Veloster Turbo so while I’m drooling over the pics and day dreaming about parking one in my garage next to the Captiva check out all the details below.
Oh and don’t forget to check back next month when I get the pleasure of driving one for a week. (Please can I have it for a month)

16 June 2016 – Hyundai has launched a street ready, sportier special edition of its dynamic Veloster Series II sports car. Only 200 examples of the Veloster Street Turbo Special Edition will be produced.

The striking Veloster Street Turbo Special Edition brings $3,000 worth of exclusive additional specification and unique enhancements above the already impressively specified Veloster Series II SR Turbo + on which it is based.

Unique Veloster Street Turbo Special Edition features include:

RAYS Gram Lights alloy wheels in a semi-gloss black finish
Exclusive Dazzling Blue Mica exterior paint colour
Turbo Sports Blue interior package
Phantom Black body side skirt, front spoiler and rear diffuser inserts, grille surround, side mirror covers and rear roof spoiler
High Intensity Discharge (HID) Xenon headlights
Unique floor mats with embroidered ‘Street’ logo and blue stitching
Front guard ‘Street’ badges in black and chrome finish
EXTERIOR
Veloster Street Turbo’s stealthy presence is heightened by the dramatic contrast between its Dazzling Blue Mica paintwork and exclusive semi-gloss black RAYS Gram Lights alloy wheels. The head-turning effect is intensified by the use of Phantom Black inserts on the side skirts, front spoiler, grille surround, rear diffuser insert, side mirror covers and rear roof spoiler.

INTERIOR
The Veloster Street Turbo Special Edition features the Turbo Sports Blue interior package which includes leather-appointed heated & ventilated front sports bucket seats with blue bolsters and blue contrast stitching, blue front seatbelts, blue front door grip handles and centre console side garnishes.

Blue contrast stitching also features on the leather-appointed door armrests, centre console armrest, steering wheel and manual transmission gear lever boot.

Additionally, the Veloster Street Turbo Special Edition gets unique floor mats with blue-stitched edging and embroidered ‘Street’ logos as standard.

Like the Veloster Series II Turbo +, the Special Edition incorporates sports instrumentation, 7-inch LCD touchscreen Satellite Navigation with CD player, MP3 functionality and Sat Nav Update Plan, a Panoramic glass sunroof, climate-control air-conditioning with auto defog function and a wealth of other desirable features.

DRIVETRAIN
The Veloster Street Turbo Special Edition’s 1.6-litre Turbo GDi four-cylinder Gamma engine produces 150kW (at 6,000rpm) and 265Nm (at 1,750 – 4,500rpm). The Gamma engine boasts Direct Injection technology, a twin-scroll turbocharger, Dual Continuously Variable Valve Timing, electronic throttle control, roller timing chain, variable induction and innovative anti-friction coatings.

In the Veloster Street Turbo Special Edition, the turbocharged Gamma GDi engine is matched to either Hyundai’s own six-speed manual or 7-speed dual-clutch transmission (DCT)

AUSTRALIA-SPECIFIC SUSPENSION AND HANDLING
Also like the Veloster Series II SR Turbo + on which it is based, the new Veloster Street Turbo Special Edition benefits from the performance-oriented ride, handling and steering refinements made to the car by Hyundai Motor Company Australia’s highly respected local chassis development team.

The Veloster Street Turbo Special Edition also benefits from experience gained during local chassis development of the VelosterRaptor concept.

Accordingly, the Veloster Street Turbo Special Edition carries over the front stabiliser bar and increased spring rates specified by HMCA’s team for Veloster Series II Turbo and Turbo +.

“At Veloster Series II’s launch last year we incorporated reduced-diameter front stabiliser bars across the range to allow for more independent front-wheel movement,” said Hyundai Motor Company Australia’s General Manager Product Engineering, Hee Loong Wong, aka ‘Wongy’. “In Veloster Series II SR Turbo, the front stabiliser bar diameter was reduced from 24mm to 22mm, and that bar – together with the bespoke dampers and firmer spring rates we specified for the car – also works extremely well with the RAYS Gram Lights alloy wheels on the new Special Edition.

“Like the Series II Turbo, the Special Edition has impressively sharp turn-in and more aggressive drive out of corners, giving it a ‘playful’ character which allows the rear to be more actively involved during high-speed cornering,” Mr Wong said.

“That ‘playfulness’ also is enhanced by the Street Special Edition’s driver-adjustable three-mode Flex Steer system.”
