Hyundai has created an iMax N drift minivan...and you can't buy it

3w ago


Hyundai makes quite a few cars that its N-performance division should look at adding some speed and flair to, but their Australian minivan is probably not high on that list. Still, that hasn't stopped them.

Australia is the home of high-performance, practical cars. However, the country has lost much of its automotive production in recent years, and, with it, that style of car so popular down under. So Hyundai has created one of their own.

This bonkers eight-seat minivan now has an eight-speed automatic gearbox, a limited-slip differential, and an aero kit. The 2.5-litre diesel has been swapped for a twin-turbo 3.5-litre V6, making 402 hp and 409 lb-ft of torque. In addition, they've given it N-performance colors and accents. The interior features suede, complemented in those colors as well. It's the ultimate family car. And even better, it drifts. Quite well, too.

Unfortunately, it's not quite so practical. These modifications mean it's no longer street-legal, and you can't buy one anyway. Still, you can tow it to the track behind your standard iMax. It'll certainly be a lot more fun.
