It took just two days for Hyundai to sell all 100 First Editions of the new i30 N, which were exclusively offered in Germany.
Last Monday, Hyundai Deutschland opened the order books for the limited First Edition of the company’s first true hot hatch and customers rushed in to secure an example by paying 1,000 euros as a deposit.
“The high interest in the First Edition confirms our confidence in the i30 N,” said Albert Biermann, VP of Performance Development and High Performance Vehicle Division. “Our first high-performance model under the N line up has been developed from the ground up to deliver pure driving pleasure in an accessible high-performance package for the road and for the track.”
The First Edition of the upcoming Hyundai i30 N is equipped with the Performance Package, meaning a turbocharged 275PS 2.0-liter engine, 19-inch alloys with stickier tires, bigger brakes, an active exhaust system and an electronic limited-slip differential among other things.
Each customer who has secured a First Edition will also be invited at the Nurburgring, where they will participate in a workshop with Albert Biermann and receive a track driving training. Each First Edition will also come with an individualized label and a fan package as well.
Those who failed to book one of the 100 First Edition cars can also enter their names in the waiting list at www.hyundai.de/i30n, and wait to see if an example becomes available. Hyundai also has an introductory price for the i30 N in Germany, set at 30,900 euros.
