  • What are the specifications of the Hyundai Ioniq 5 N Pikes Peak Car?

Hyundai is making waves in the world of electric vehicle (EV) motorsport with its latest announcement: a souped-up, high-performance version of the Ioniq 5 N set to compete in the iconic Pikes Peak International Hill Climb. The South Korean automaker will field four Ioniq 5 Ns at this year's event, two of which will be nearly showroom stock, while the other two will be enhanced Time Attack (TA) Spec versions. These upgrades are aimed at securing the modified electric SUV/Crossover record.

Enhanced Aerodynamics and Performance

Enhanced Aerodynamics and Performance

The Hyundai Ioniq 5 N Time Attack Spec stands out with its aggressive aerodynamic modifications. The car features a massive spoiler, side sills, and fender flares, all designed to maximize downforce and stability during the challenging hill climb. Additionally, 18-inch forged wheels wrapped in Yokohama slicks are nestled under the arches, supported by a robust braking system with six-piston calipers at the front and four-piston calipers at the rear.

The suspension system has been significantly upgraded with three-way adjustable dampers, allowing for fine-tuning of ride height and camber. These enhancements ensure that the TA Spec version can handle the demanding Pikes Peak course with precision and agility.

Power Boost

Power Boost

Powering the Ioniq 5 N TA Spec is a retuned EV powertrain, which now delivers an impressive 678 horsepower, thanks to an additional 37 hp from the rear motor in full overboost mode. Remarkably, these powertrain components are still production items found in the standard Ioniq 5 N, highlighting Hyundai's engineering prowess. While there's no confirmation yet on whether a production version of the TA Spec will be available, the potential for such a model is intriguing.

One of the most striking features of the Ioniq 5 N TA Spec is its enhanced external sound system. Equipped with speakers capable of producing 120 decibels, the car emits tones through Hyundai's N Active Sound+ system. This isn't just for show; it's a crucial safety measure, ensuring the otherwise quiet EV is heard during the race. Hyundai also notes that the engine sounds will enhance driver feedback, creating a more immersive and responsive driving experience.

In addition to the two race-prepped models, Hyundai will also campaign two production-spec Ioniq 5 Ns. These vehicles aim to set a production EV record at Pikes Peak. The only modifications from the standard showroom model are safety-related, including roll cages and necessary competition gear. This approach underscores Hyundai's confidence in the inherent performance capabilities of the Ioniq 5 N.

The Hyundai Ioniq 5 N Time Attack Spec is more than just a powerful electric vehicle; it's a testament to Hyundai's innovative spirit and dedication to motorsport excellence. With its enhanced aerodynamics, increased horsepower, and immersive sound system, the Ioniq 5 N TA Spec is poised to make a significant impact at this year's Pikes Peak International Hill Climb. Whether on the track or in the virtual world of Gran Turismo, Hyundai is charging ahead into the future of motorsport.

Aston Martin aims for 20th class victory at the 24 Hours of Le Mans as new Vantage GT3 makes debut

Aston Martin’s new Vantage GT3 is all set to make its debut in the world’s most famous endurance race, the 24 Hours of Le Mans, this weekend (15-16 June), as the ultra-luxury British sportscar manufacturer targets an incredible 20th class victory at the event.

Two examples of the Aston Martin Vantage GT3, which shares the mechanical architecture of the new Vantage road car unveiled earlier this year at Silverstone, and which is built around Aston Martin’s proven bonded aluminium chassis and powered by its fearsome twin-turbo 4.0-litre V8 engine, will contest the ‘twice around the clock’ race in central France. Both will compete in the new-for-2024 LMGT3 category as Aston Martin continues to lay the groundwork for its return to the top class with the Valkyrie AMR-LMH in 2025.
