[VIDEO] Hyundai i20 WRC hits the road image

Hyundai has released the first footage with the new i20 WRC in action, after it was officially presented to the public for the first time during the 2012 Paris Motor Show.

The South Korean based automaker has announced its intention to enter the World Rally Championship starting with the 2014 season and the company has taken a step forward into this direction by bringing the i20 WRC to the 2012 Paris Motor Show. But if you were probably asking whether or not this is fully functioning vehicle until now, the video posted below is the best answer to this question.

The Hyundai i20 WRC is coming with a 1.6 liter turbo engine under its hood, which is FIA compliant, but the car manufacturer didn’t announce any performance details for obvious reasons. Additional details on the Hyundai i20 WRC are limited for the moment but we know that the model in question is currently under development in Offenbach, Germany, where the company’s European headquarters are located. Hyundai isn’t planning to produce a high performance version of the hatchback, inspired by the i20 WRC anytime soon.
