The realization of our automotive dreams seems to be on the horizon, thanks to recent developments in Korea. Hyundai has officially announced its intentions to bring the universally adored N Vision 74 concept to life and make it available for purchase.
As reported by ETNews yesterday, Hyundai plans to produce a limited number of the sports-car concept, drawing inspiration from the 1974 Hyundai Pony Coupe. According to the information provided, the company aims to manufacture a total of 100 copies, with only 70 of them slated for sale to the general public. The remaining 30 units are earmarked for racing purposes, with production scheduled to commence in the first half of 2026.
One noteworthy detail highlighted in the report is that the production version of the N Vision 74 is expected to boast a remarkable 800 horsepower. This is a significant increase of 120 horsepower compared to the prototype we had the opportunity to test on the track. The prototype featured a hydrogen fuel-cell coupled with two electric motors, each providing 335 horsepower to a rear wheel.
While the prospect of a production N Vision 74 is exciting, it comes with a touch of melancholy. Acquiring one may prove nearly impossible for most enthusiasts due to the limited production run, and even those with the desire may find the price tag beyond their reach. Hyundai is reportedly positioning the N Vision 74 in the realm of supercars, and the intricacies of its high-performance powertrain are likely to be reflected in its cost.
Nevertheless, the idea of 100 ultra-exclusive N Vision 74s gracing the roads and racetracks, even if only a few can afford them, adds a touch of exhilaration to the automotive landscape.
