Hyundai gave us a preview of their upcoming Nurburgring test centre by revealing two rendered photos. The facility will be ready in August this year and will feature four floors dedicated to workshops, office space and a VIP hospitality area.

According to the Korean automaker, the test centre will enable them to fine tune the suspension, steering and handling characteristics of their products to suit the taste of the European drivers.

"Quality is one of Hyundai's core values and it is key to achieving customer satisfaction. The Nurburgring is the ultimate location to test vehicle durability, and we're able to apply what we learn there to all of our vehicle development projects. Our new facility will increase our testing capacity, bringing direct benefits to our customers in terms of vehicle quality and performance," said Allan Rushforth, Senior Vice President and COO of Hyundai Motor Europe.

The new test centre will allow Hyundai to conduct more vehicle assessments per year, which include the accelerated durability tests that simulate up to 180,000km of road wear and tear in a matter of weeks.

I have been a car fanatic since 1989, when my father was changing our family car then to a Toyota Corolla 1.6 GL fitted with a Twin Cam 16 valve engine that was carburetor-fed, a big deal back in those days. The automobile technology and industry fascinates me and I hope to broadcast these interesting developments to everyone out there through this blog.
