The special edition i30 N will only be available in very limited numbers here in Australia, but gains extra collectibility flair
Pricing starts from $53,200 before on-road costs for the manual variant, while the dual-clutch automatic transmission costs $3000 more at $56,200.
The Drive N special edition of the i30 N hatch will have a limited production of just 800 units globally, with 180 of those destined for Australian shores.
The Drive N is based specifically on the i30 N Premium with sunroof and features an array of aesthetic changes.
The biggest additions to the car include new bronze badges, side decal stickers and 19-inch bronze alloy wheels, while inside the Drive N has a unique alcantara interior along with red accents throughout and bright red N buttons on the steering wheel.
Also added on for the limited edition variant are red seat belts, red stitching throughout the cabin and Drive N-exclusive floor mats.
Each Drive N car delivered in Australia will have a plaque fitted with the car’s unique build number displayed clearly for the driver.
Two colours are available for the new Drive N, a phantom black pearl or serenity white pearl.
No tweaks have been made to the performance or handling of the i30 N Drive N edition. The Drive N’s 2.0-litre turbocharged petrol four-cylinder engine will have identical outputs to a standard i30 N – 206kW/392Nm.
All prices listed are before on-road costs.
