Auto Expo 2014 Hyundai i20 WRC showcased (1)

The World Rally Championship (WRC) is one of the world’s toughest motorsport series. Hyundai has chosen the i20 as a base for its WRC model. This is an affordable production car with high-build quality and modern design, and is ideal for everyday use. The hand-built i20 WRC is a bespoke, ultra-performance competition car that is based on the popular production vehicle, but stripped out, strengthened and tuned extensively in all areas.
