Hyundai Planning Mid-Engine Sports Car Based On RM19

Hyundai will put a mid-engined sports cars based on the RM19 unveiled today in Los Angeles


  • New mid-engine sports cars will be based on RM19 mid-engine prototype

Hyundai has been working on the development of a range of mid-engine sports cars under the RM banner dating back to 2012. The first RM car, which stands for Racing Midship, was unveiled in 2014.

Today, Hyundai unveiled the RM19 mid-engine sports car which packs a range of aero bits, a large in-your-face spoiler, and all of the other necessary tech to go fast on a track. A 2.0-litre, turbocharged inline-four engine develops 390 horsepower, enabling the Hyundai RM19 to reach 60 mph in under 4.0 seconds.

The biggest news to come out of this unveil, however, is the possibility of Hyundai turning the RM19 into an eventual mid-engine production sports car for the public. The news comes from Road&Track which spoke to a Hyundai insider with knowledge of the project.

There’s no question this is a car we’d love to see. Just imagine a mid-engined car the size of a Veloster with 300-ish horsepower? Not sure how the public would react and if there’s any potential, but if you’re an enthusiast the idea makes a ton of sense.
