There are many silly, cringe-inducing labels attached to Hyundai N’s first ever fully electric performance machine, but the seriousness with which they are deployed will make your brain melt.

One of those being the ‘N Grin Boost’ mode which unleashes a very serious power hike from the 5 N’s ‘standard’ 580bhp to 641bhp for 10 seconds, accomplished via its dual electric motors.

That means it’ll go from 0-62mph in 3.4s and max out at 162mph. There’s also a mode that simulates the behaviour of a DCT gearbox, plus the ability to change the sound emitted by the 5 N: either a straightforward 2.0-litre turbo, something akin to the RN22e concept, or an actual twin-engine fighter jet. Fighter jets all day long, please.

Top gear Magazine’s Ollie Marriage heads to Korea to take a closer look.
