Most cars on the planet are plain and simple transportation devices. For us car lovers, this is a devastating fact since we think of cars as a life philosophy and much more than just a transportation device. However, for the vast majority of the population, cars are a necessity and they just want a decent set of wheels to get them around.
But even those ordinary cars can be the basis for some fantastic road machines. When bean counters at the head office are satisfied with the sales results, engineers and designers get permission to play with interesting combinations of engines and drive trains. And then the magic happens and ordinary and boring machines are turned into proper driver`s cars. Here are the 30 best examples.
1. Hyundai Veloster N
The regular Veloster is an odd-looking hatchback with an unusual three-door layout which includes two doors on the right side and one on the left. Apart from this quirky feature, Veloster in its standard guise is a pretty boring car without any real significance to car enthusiasts. However, the N version is a whole different story.
The Veloster N has 250 to 275 HP, turbocharged engine, trick front differential, different suspension, and exterior design package. With all of this, the nature of the car is totally changed and from boring economy hatchback, Veloster N is turned into one of the best hot hatches on the market.
