The RM16, just like RM15, is based on Hyundai’s Veloster. However, except for the roof section and the side body panels, the RM16 is entirely different from RM15. The production Veloster-sourced hood, headlamps, and the large front grille that the RM15 has, are not present in RM16. The RM16 has unique features, including headlights that are slimmer and LED lights that are feature enriched. The hood of the car extends toward the bumper. The bumper is incorporated with a carbon-fiber element that resembles the trademark grille of the company. Due to the revised hood, the upper sections of the front fenders are mildly altered. The wheels, the side skirts, the wide wheel arches, and the fender intake (rear) are all identical. RM16’s taillights extend into the tailgate. The tailgate features grille-like elements and 2 almost rectangular cavities enhanced by red backgrounds. One of the major changes includes the lack of a fixed wing. Instead, the concept car features a carbon-fiber-made tailgate spoiler that is massive. Also, the bumper sports a very aggressive look. It features big side vents, as well as at each of the corner, a diffuser (motorsport-inspired) with massive outlets. The N Performance division made all these modifications to improve the downforce and aerodynamics of the RM16 and to give the concept car a very aggressive and sporty look.
The only detail about the interior of RM16 that Hyundai has shared so far is about the bolstered driver seat. Since the earlier RMs had the same feature, this does not come as a surprise. A lot of carbon-fiber, a steering wheel that is flat-bottomed, lightweight door panels, and a digital instrument cluster are some of the interior features that the automobile experts and the Hyundai fans are hoping to see in RM16. In short, a cockpit that is race-inspired.
