Our dreams may be on the verge of realization, as recent reports from Korea suggest that Hyundai has officially announced its intentions to produce and market versions of the widely admired N Vision 74 concept.
According to an article published by ETNews yesterday, Hyundai is set to manufacture a limited quantity of the sports car concept, drawing inspiration from the 1974 Hyundai Pony Coupe. The plan outlines the production of 100 units in total, with only 70 earmarked for public sale, while the remaining 30 are designated for racing purposes. Production is anticipated to commence in the first half of 2026.
The report also provides intriguing insights into the production version of the N Vision 74. It is disclosed that the car will boast a combined 800 horsepower, surpassing the prototype we previously had the opportunity to test on the track by an additional 120 horsepower. The prototype featured a unique combination of a hydrogen fuel cell and two electric motors, each generating 335 horsepower to drive the rear wheels.
While the potential realization of the N Vision 74 is exciting, it comes with a touch of melancholy. Acquiring one may prove to be a challenging feat for most enthusiasts, given the limited production and the anticipated high price tag. Hyundai envisions the N Vision 74 as a supercar, and its intricate high-performance powertrain reflects this classification, likely influencing its cost.
Nevertheless, the prospect of having 100 ultra-expensive N Vision 74s traversing both public roads and closed racetracks is undoubtedly a captivating thought. Even if they remain elusive for many, the presence of these extraordinary vehicles would undoubtedly enrich the automotive landscape.
