The overall post-pandemic recovery situation in Europe is getting better every week, with news of more travellers moving around the continent to enjoy their summer break plus getting out of lockdowns and stay-at-home directives.

A Hyundai Veloster N in front of Seoul’s Gwanghwamun Gate

Hyundai’s performance division, Hyundai N, has issued some adorable pixel art to lighten the mood.

The pixel art features Hyundai i30 N and the recently launched i20 N and Kona N at various international landmarks, such as the Sydney Opera House, San Francisco’s Golden Gate Bridge, Seoul’s Gwanghwamun Gate as well as Paris’ Arc de Triomphe.

Of course, not forgetting the famous Nurburgring Nordschleife where plenty of development activities were done on the chassis, powertrain and vehicle durability.

The N also stands for both the 20.8 km loop in Nurburg, Germany, plus Hyundai Motor’s global research and development centre in Namyang, Korea.

In summary, the Hyundai N models are:

  • i30 N – 280 hp, 392 Nm, 6-MT or 8-DCT, 0-100 km/h in 5.9 seconds
  • Veloster N – 280 hp, 378 Nm, 6-MT or 8-DCT, 5.6 seconds
  • Kona N – 280 hp, 392 Nm, 8-speed DCT, 5.5 seconds
  • i20 N – 204 hp, 304 Nm, 6-speed manual, 6.7 seconds  

Hyundai will also launch the Elantra N in the coming weeks, their first sedan in the growing line-up of N models.

Hyundai N collaborated with a software company for the pixel art, so be sure to check out Etherfield Games for more of their collection. They also produced a few fan favourites and icons from the 70s and 80s.
