A rumor suggests that Hyundai is working on a 2.3t engine capable of a 7k redline. Its yet another example of trickled down motorsports tech ending up in production vehicles. Expect this powerplant to end up in the Veloster N.

I love this for Hyundai, it should be an exciting engine at 7,000 rpm. It's the same redline as the Type R!

The GR Yaris also revs to 7,000 and sounds amazing as most well tuned cars would at that point.

Anyone think we could see Hyundai reduce weight from the current 3,106 lbs.?
The Type R is at 3123 lbs. and I bet the 11th gen model will see a reduction.
