A new sports car from Hyundai is set to enter British car buying.
The GT-VIPBox sports car will debut at the Sport Car Show in Manchester from August 10.
The first GT-class sports car was introduced in 2017 and has seen extensive development with a range of upgrades including a rear spoiler, a new powertrain, and a new aerodynamic package.
Hyundai has also invested in a new development line, called ‘VipBox’, which is based on the Hyundai GT-R.
This new sports sedan is the first GT3 version to come with an eight-speed automatic transmission.
Hyde is also adding a GT-series supercharged engine for a further boost of power, and has made the supercharged version available with a standard engine package.
The Hyundai GTVIPbox will be priced at £45,100 (about $70,200), and will be offered with a three-wheel drive system.
The car will feature an all-new design and it will be based on an existing sports car.
The sport car will be driven by a driver in the GT-CX-4 class, a class that was first introduced in 2018.
It is expected that the GTVIFax will have a 0-62mph time of 4.6 seconds, a top speed of 186mph (301km/h), and a top gear range of 5,500km (3,821 miles).
The GTV-T will be a two-seater sports car that will be powered by an all new turbocharged four-cylinder engine with an output of more than 500hp (420kW).
It will be available with the same suspension, engine, and engine gearbox as the GT4-C.
Hybrid-electric vehicles (EVs) are also being developed for the UK market.
The new GT-EV will be able to accelerate from 0-60mph in 2.5 seconds, and reach a top-speed of 200mph.
Hydercom is set for a new supercar-buiding platform, with plans to launch the GT500e car next year.
