The car, a more performance-orientated version of the standard Veloster, is powered by a 1.6-litre direct-injection turbocharged engine which Hyundai says is perfect for aftermarket tuners.
The firm says it has enhanced the standard Veloster with a tuned chassis, new bodywork and a new six-speed manual transmission. On the outside, the model gets a new front splitter and new R-Spec badging at the rear. Inside, special red leather trim features with red cloth sports seats and bespoke R-Spec mats.
Hyundai says that in keeping with a focus on pure driving, some standard equipment from the standard Turbo model - including push-button start, an automatic driver's window, and heater leather seats - have been left out from the R-Spec model.
A new Torque Vectoring Control system has been added however, which manages the on-board ESC and traction settings to improve cornering response and handling.
