"It was like a bomb," Albert Biermann told me, describing one of the more, uh, experimental settings for the Hyundai Veloster N during its testing at the Nürburgring. Biermann runs Hyundai N, coming off of his old job running the alphabetically-adjacent BMW M. If anyone knows how to make a fully-realised performance car, it's Biermann and his team. But you don't get a well-polished car without it being rough at first, and I wanted to know how rough things had been.
