Hyundai adds to SEMA lineup with EGR Yellowcake Night RacerMon, 30 Sep 2013
Hyundai is continuing its SEMA push ahead of the specialty show, which takes place Nov. 5-8 at the Las Vegas Convention Center, by introducing the Yellowcake EGR Night Racer Veloster Turbo. The name just rolls off the tongue.
The custom color (“yellowcake”) was created by EGR in collaboration with PPG and California-based Barry’s Speed Shop. The “night racer” part comes from the Wurton roof-mounted LED light bar and custom ONEighty-branded headlights. Hyundai says it could see this car being used for time-attack competitions at night-racing circuits.
EGR built and installed the exterior pieces, including the widebody kit, hood deflectors, window visors, rear spoiler and bumper guard. APR provided the front splitter.
In addition to the flashy cosmetic upgrades, the Night Racer comes with a custom roll cage, ARK coilover suspension and AEM strut brace. Brembo brakes are surrounded by DPE three-piece racing wheels and Toyo tires.
The engine, which begins life as a 201-hp turbocharged 1.6-liter, gets power tuning by Bisimoto Engineering, an AEM intake, MagnaFlow exhaust and uses VP racing fuels. Those upgrades boost output to 250 hp.
Inside the Veloster is wrapped in a Katzkin custom setup with Takata racing seats and harnesses.
The Yellowcake will join the 1,000-hp Genesis Coupe built by Bisimoto on Hyundai’s SEMA stand in a month.
