One of Hyundai’s vehicles on display at the SEMA Show this year in Las Vegas will be a Veloster Turbo, built to do what no Veloster has done before: go off-road.
The powertrain remains nearly the same, with the single addition being a Borla cat-back exhaust, though power is still listed at 201 horsepower. Suspension on this car has been lifted to accommodate all-terrain tires. A massive brush gear up front offers protection along with a steel bumper out back.
Large LED off-road lights are built into the brush guard and added to the roof-top basket, which itself has been added to hold a full-size spare tire. Hyundai also says it’s meant to mount solar panels on for powering your electronics while camping.
A custom vinyl wrap and a carbon fiber hood help to complete the looks.
On the inside, the Grappler comes with all the camping accessories you’ll ever need like a tent, power adapter for the solar panels, a first aid kit and a roadside repair kit. Recaro seat help to cushion occupants while a roll bar keeps folks safe.
Like all creations for SEMA, don’t expect to see this Veloster at your local Hyundai dealer anytime soon. Although, it’s always fun to dream and this project does look pretty cool.
