Drive-N Limited Edition focus is on optics

The Hyundai i30 N Drive-N Limited Edition will be available in Phantom Black Pearl and Serenity White Pearl colors. Regardless of the paint color, this particular model comes with 19-inch forged wheels in dark bronze with a matt black finish.
Bronze accents can be found everywhere on the car: A plaque is attached to the left and right of the front fender, each bearing the coordinates of the Hyundai Motor Europe Test Center at the Nürburgring.

All of the brand’s performance models have been developed and tested at the Nürburgring since 2011. Just above the doorway there is also another bronze trim on either side.

The Hyundai i30 N Drive-N Limited Edition is available in white or black.

Besides bronze, red is a color that colors the entire design of the car. There is a distinctive red stripe on the apron and between the rocker panels and the bronze trim. The brake pads are also painted red and thus stand out strongly from the bronze-colored rims.

Standard i30 N Drive-N equipment includes glass roof

There are also plenty of red accents in the interior, starting with the red seat belts up front and red stitching on the Alcantara seats and ending with a red border on the floor carpet.

The luminous N logo on the seats is especially eye-catching in the Limited Edition interior.

Another eye-catcher is the illuminated N logo on the front seats. This design is already known from the M logo on some BMWs. The Hyundai i30 N Drive-N Limited Edition also comes standard with a glass roof.

Drive completely taken over by i30 N Performance

The South Korean racer is powered by a two-liter turbocharged petrol engine with 280 hp and 392 Nm of maximum torque – the same as the Hyundai i30 N Performance.

The limited edition model can be ordered with a six-speed manual or eight-speed dual-clutch transmission.

The driving force is completely taken over by the Hyundai i30 N Performance.

To provide the driver with a sportier driving experience, the Limited Edition has three special functions: “N Power Shift”, “N Grin Shift” and “N Track Sense Shift”.

Pressing the N-Grin Shift key will boost the car and add 10 horsepower for 20 seconds. Three stages of switching are known from the i30 N Performance.

It costs about 40,000 euros

Hyundai has yet to comment on when the i30 N Drive-N Limited Edition will be available to order. At this time nothing is known about the price either. Normal i30 N starts at 33,650 euros, for i30 N Performance 36,900 euros due. The Drive-N Limited Edition will probably cost a bit more and will cost around 40,000 euros.
