COSTA MESA, Calif., Sept. 30, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- EGR Group, a leading OEM and aftermarket accessory supplier for nearly four decades, is developing a custom EGR Night Racer concept based on the Hyundai Veloster Turbo that is guaranteed to turn heads. The racecar, designed specifically for time attack races at night racing circuits, will be showcased at the 2013 SEMA show in Las Vegas, November 5-8.
The EGR Night Racer's most compelling cosmetic upgrade is a unique vivid yellow paint scheme. This custom-developed color, dubbed Yellowcake, was created by EGR in collaboration with the paint experts at PPG and Barry's Speed Shop. With the addition of a Wurton roof-mounted LED light bar and custom ONEighty-branded headlights, the EGR Night Racer will be impossible to miss, especially on night racing circuits.
Modifications to the EGR Night Racer go far beyond cosmetics. Body rigidity has been increased significantly with the addition of a custom roll cage, and ride height is race-tuned with an ARK coil-over suspension and AEM strut brace. Bisimoto Engineering provided powertrain tuning expertise, boosting the 1.6-liter output to 250 horsepower, while oversized Brembo brakes, DPE 3-piece racing wheels and Toyo semi-slick racing tires ensure the power is kept under precise control.
"Veloster Turbo provides an ideal tuning platform for enthusiasts who want to modify their cars," said Mike O'Brien, vice president, product planning, Hyundai Motor America. "EGR created a very special night-focused time attack car that perfectly showcases Veloster Turbo's inherently sporty DNA."
