 has unveiled two further concepts it will have on display at the 2019 SEMA Show in Las Vegas later this month: the VelosterRaptor N and Kona Ultimate.

VelosterRaptor N concept

Created in conjunction with Bisimoto Engineering, the VelosterRaptor N concept builds on the Veloster N, which isn't sold Down Under.
According to Hyundai, the concept is designed to be a "[Civic] Type R killer".
The 2.0-liter four-cylinder has been paired with an upgraded turbocharger, a more efficient intake, a high-performance intercooler, a new management system, mass airflow mods, a water-methanol kit, and a high-flow exhaust system.
Thanks to these changes, the engine now develops over 238kW (320hp) of power.
The VelosterRaptor also features a lower Eibach suspension setup, Fifteen52 wheels with stickier tyres, Tarox front brakes, and a custom-built rear spoiler.
For the cabin, Bisimoto has stripped things back a bit and fitted new lightweight Momo seats and a digital diagnostic screen.

Rockstar Kona Ultimate concept

The Rockster Performance Garage has given Hyundai's small Kona crossover improved off-roading ability.
With its 30-inch Mickey Thompson race-grooved tyres, 16-inch Motegi wheels, and King suspension system, the Kona concept sits significantly higher off the ground than the models currently available in showrooms throughout the world.
The engine has been fitted with a K&N intake, Magnaflow exhaust system, and new management hardware.
There are also three LED light pods mounted to the front of the vehicle, upgraded brake pads, a Kicker audio system, and seats trimmed in alligator skin.
