Hyundai’s sporty little coupe - the Veloster - was an ace in the hole in terms of design, but its power left much to be desired, so the South Korean manufacturer took it a step further by offering the new Veloster Turbo. The new Turbo comes with a 201 HP 1.6-liter turbocharged-gasoline direct injection engine, but this may only be a starting point for future power boosts.

According to MotorAuthority, a Hyundai insider revealed that the company is considering an even more powerful Veloster. This future model will feature a stiffer chassis and a revised suspension with mechanically adjustable dampers, components that many thought would have been added to the Veloster Turbo. The insider let it be known that the lack of changes to the chassis and suspension for the Turbo model were a part of a grand scheme to offer up a more powerful Veloster variant. If produced, this hotter Veloster will more than likely end up with an updated version of the current 1.6-liter turbo.

There is not an official name for the future Veloster as of right now, but taking inspiration from its bigger brother - the Hyundai Coupe - it is believed that the new model will be named the Hyundai Veloster Turbo R-Spec.

Expect to see the Hyundai Veloster Turbo R-Spec launched sometime in the next few months.

For me this is the best coupe that Hyundai has made. Aside from simple but elegant design, they also equipped it with high quality components.

Hmm.. I think it’s a little bulky. But I would say that the concept is great. I like the lowered feature of this car.
