Hyundai Makes Ultimate H1 With V6

Hyundai H1 4

Meet the ultimate Hyundai H1, complete with a turbocharged V6 with over 300 kW and 500 Nm! 

Sadly, don't get your hopes up or get too excited as this is a once-off custom creation from Hyundai Australia. Dubbed the Hyundai H1 iMax N Drift Bus (H1 is the iMax Down Under), it's been extensively modified and is inspired by the N brand, 

The 2.5-litre CRDi diesel motor was ripped out and replaced with a rorty 3.5-litre twin-turbo V6 with over 300 kW and 555 Nm, all of which is sent to the rear wheels via an 8-speed automatic gearbox. A differential was also fitted. Hyundai Australia says it has 50/50 weight distribution and it'll accelerate to 100 kph in under 5 seconds.

The suspension also features electronically-controlled dampers, while the brakes have also been given an N performance upgrade. The 19-inch alloy wheels are straight from an i30 N and the vehicle gets the N Performance Blue exterior paint as well as a bodykit.
