It certainly looks and sounds fantastic but will it be available in RHD in the UK as nothing in the reviews has confirmed it. Anyone know ?

Good review :goodjob2: like I've previously mentioned they still should have added a bit more grunt to it as VW have just released their new Golf R with 213kw :head_knock: :link: 2017 Volkswagen Golf R review

I'm sure it will be.

Like the very highly regarded reviewer that did that review said, it's not all about the fastest or the most powerful. It's about the sum of the parts and he rates it as pretty much the best on the market in that class, particularly taking into account the price. More power = more $$ (where does it end)

I think Hyundai are being smart aiming for a well priced, good all-rounder.

They are going to build other N models, some of which might have more power...

That exhaust sounds lush. That noise alone would put a smile on my face. I want one  :phone1:

would you have to order and wait a long time for a car like this to be hand built? I don't think they mass produce them?
two of my friends ordered cars in that class. one a Ford Focus 2.3 turbo awd rs he just had it delivered a month ago after an 18 month wait for it to be hand built for him. another friend I ride pushy with has ordered one of the new golf vw r & he has been waiting for it.
I don't think I could wait that long for anything!!

I doubt the waiting list on the N will be more than a couple of months..
