Hyundai and RE:MIX Lab have a long history of collaborations, including a number of offerings at the SEMA Auto Show . This year, the two companies are back at it again to introduce a special edition RE:MIX production Veloster that’s actually set to go on sale before the year ends.
While not as bombastic as some of their previous tie-ups , the special edition production Veloster does feature a number of modifications, including an aggressive sporty exterior appearance with a unique body kit, projector headlights with LED accents, rear LED taillights, fog lights, and a new set of 18" Unique gunmetal-finish alloy wheels.
Inside, the Veloster RE:MIX Edition carries a premium 450W Dimension audio system with 8 speakers and 8" subwoofers. Obviously, that’s part of the program considering that RE:MIX Lab is known for their celebration in the creativity of music. Other enhancements include a leather steering wheel and shift knob, an interior LED light kit, unique floor mats, and badges.
No engine upgrades were given to the Veloster RE:MIX Edition, which means that anybody interested in the car will have to "make do" with the Veloster’s 138-horsepower, 1.6-liter GDI DOHC 16-valve transverse-mounted inline 4-cylinder engine.
The revamped Veloster models are scheduled to hit Hyundai dealerships before winter and have been priced at $19,900 for the manual transmission model and $21,150 for the DCT model.
UPDATE 02/22/13: The Hyundai Veloster RE:MIX Edition has finally hit dealerships! Be sure to get your hands on one if you’re interested in the car!
