At the 2015 Frankfurt Motor Show Hyundai has presented the full-size prototype of its N 2025 Vision Gran Turism, a concept that explores the potential of the new N sub-brand.


Design

The Hyundai N 2025 Vision Gran Turismo’s design concept draws inspiration from aeronautics and the testing ground called ‘Muroc Dry Lake’ .

The audacious spirit shown by pilots at Muroc Dry Lake was the main motif for the design of the car, which for this reason is also called ‘Muroc’.

The exterior borrows cues from jet fighters and was create so as it appears to be floating, like a machine crafted for grounded aeronautics.

As air flows through the trademark 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.

Sound Design

To maximize the emotional experience of the vehicle, Hyundai Motor’s Sound Design Research Lab designed a unique racing car sound system for fuel cell based cars.

The sounds from the air blower’s turbine that spins at around 200,000 rpm, the unique frequency of fuel cell stacks, the purging sound from the hydrogen cooling system and the high-pitched in-wheel motor sound harmoniously combine to produce a distinct race car rumble.

Powertrain

The Hyundai N 2025 Vision Gran Turismo’s powertrain is based on world’s first mass-produced Hyundai hydrogen fuel cell system.

The total system output is 650 kW (884 PS), with the dual fuel cell stacks providing 500 kW (680 PS), and the super capacitor system generating an additional 150 kW (204 PS) by using energy regeneration when braking.

Power is delivered through four high-powered independent in-wheel motors, which provide optimal traction and immediate response.

The compact, lightweight fuel cell stacks and rigid CFRP monocoque structure help to keep weight down to 972 kg, giving it a power-to-weight ratio that rivals the most exotic supercars in the world. Combined with a low center of gravity, this power and performance sets the car up to perform on the most challenging of race tracks, encapsulating the thrilling premise of N cars.
