The Veloster Velocity represents a joint effort between the Design and Engineering divisions of Hyundai America Technical Center in Irvine, California.

Expanding on all of the original Veloster strengths, the Velocity features a an aggressive, factory-racer design language.

“In creating Velocity, we were inspired to take the Veloster’s original concept strengths to their fullest expression,” said Chris Chapman, head of Hyundai’s Irvine, California design center.

“Velocity gave our design and engineering teams license to take Veloster far beyond everyday production car limitations.”

The Veloster Velocity is equipped with a 400 hp and 350 lb.-ft. 1.6-liter, direct-injected engine tuned by Cosworth, with performance pistons, rods, turbocharger, intercooler, intake manifold, intake-charging design, fuel system and engine management.
