Hyundai reveals striking new livery for WRC Rally Sweden

Hyundai Motorsport will debut a brand-new livery at Rally Sweden this week (15 – 18 February), round two of the FIA World Rally Championship.

Revealed today (Tuesday), the new livery is a nod to the Korean marque’s ‘N’ brand and pays homage to its 10th consecutive season in the WRC. It is set to feature on all of Hyundai’s i20 N Rally1 cars for the remainder of the year.

 

This change also means that Thierry Neuville and Martijn Wydaghe’s Rallye Monte-Carlo-winning livery will be retired – making it a special limited-edition design.

 

“As some of our colleagues celebrate the Lunar New Year, we are also marking a fresh beginning with an all-new livery for the remainder of the FIA WRC season,” said Hyundai Motorsport president and team principal Cyril Abiteboul. “The design was created to pay tribute to our close working relationship with Hyundai N and Hyundai Motor Company and complements their celebrations of ten years in the pinnacle of rallying.


“Starting the 2024 season with a win at one of the most iconic events in WRC history was an incredible moment, ten years after our first-ever Rallye Monte-Carlo, and it is fitting that Thierry and Martijn’s Monte-Carlo colours are memorialised in the history books,” Abiteboul added.

 

Hyundai fields three cars in Umeå. Neuville is joined by Ott Tänak as well as Esapekka Lappi, who starts his first rally of the season alongside co-driver Janne Ferm.
