Got the Veloster N

She's a little beast !!! and yes, I paid WAY too much for this super rare car.

N is for Nürburgring the famous race course in Germany and is highlighted on the brake calipers and the N badges on the seats.

Like a Volkswagen GTI, but much faster and better handling.

I had a first gen veloster shortly and it was one of the worst manuals I've ever driven. The rev hang was so bad it made the yaris throttle response seem like a race car.

Sweet looking veloster. They have really come a long way with the styling.

So that's what the N stands for.

I really like the Veloster, ever since it came out 10 years ago.

They are asking about $42k CAD up here for it, so yeah, not exactly cheap.

Sounds pretty awful to make the Yaris throttle response feel anything resembling "race car".

Yeah, the car was not enjoyable to drive in any way. I sold it pretty quickly for a profit. I've heard these newer velosters are way better though. They certainly look much nicer than the one I had.

I will say the one I had (2013) had a very nice leather interior and sunroof, but I am a sucker for simple interiors personally.

Much appreciated

And congratulations, nice looking car. I wasn't so fond of the original look but it seems the design has evolved nicely. Enjoy.

Many car folks believe it's a better buy than the Civic Type R given cost vs. performance numbers. I hear it's an absolute riot to drive. Congrats and enjoy!
