After we caught around Hyundai’s Technical Center in Germany and on the wild in South Korea, today and thanks to Automotive Mike we can hear roar the Hyundai’s third “N-performance” model, the i30 N Fastback, on the Nurburgring.
Now we spotted again the third model of the “N” series, the i30 N Fastback, at this time during some tune at the one of the most famous circuits. The fastback were supposed to share the same engine options that are available for the hatchback meaning the base model will have 250 horsepower and the “sportier” version will boost 275 wild horses instead.
Six-speed manual gearbox is the choice for both versions for now, but latest reports said that Hyundai are preparing an i30 N Fastback with almost 300 hp in order to compesate the higher weight compared to the normal hatch. This will turn into Hyundai’s N powerful model.
As we can see the fastback version will follow the look of the hatch with a sportier front bumper with big air intakes (hidden under camouflage here), wider side sills and bigger wheels. Behind those big wheels we also notice bigger brakes with red calipers.
At the back we see the two big exhaust pipes and what might be a rear spoiler hidden. The N Fastback will debut at the end of the year.
