The countdown to the SEMA Show continues as Hyundai and Blood Type Racing have released the first details about the BTR Edition Elantra Sport concept.
Set to debut later this month, the one-off model is based on the Elantra Sport and features AutoArt body and paint work as well as custom headlights. Designers also installed a "track-ready" lip kit, a rear wing, and 19-inch wheels with Toyo T1 Sport tires.
The sporty styling continues in the cabin as drivers will find a carbon fiber steering wheel, upgraded upholstery, and diamond-stitched floor mats. Other highlights include LED lighting and a custom tool set in the trunk.
Under the hood, the turbocharged 1.6-liter four-cylinder engine has been equipped a new intake, an optimized ECU, and a Devil’s Own water/methanol injection system. There's no word on performance specifications but the standard model has 201 hp (150 kW) and 195 lb-ft (264 Nm) of torque.
Besides the upgraded engine, the car has an HSD coilover suspension and a Fella Big Brake kit. Rounding out the changes are sway bars, a strut tower brace, and a chassis brace from Pierce Motorsports.
According to Blood Type Racing product manager Sam Lee, “Building upon the well-developed Elantra Sport platform, powertrain and design fundamentals, we’ve given enthusiasts a new vision of where this affordable sport compact wants to go.”
