Hyundai has officically opened its brand new European Test Centre at the Nürburgring in Germany, the company’s latest investment in its regional infrastructure. An opening ceremony marked the completion of the €6,62 million purpose-built vehicle testing facility, boosting the brand’s R&D operations in Europe. The company’s new test centre provides it with a full-time presence at the iconic Nürburgring circuit, allowing it to further evaluate and develop the durability and driving dynamics of its vehicles more effectively and more often.
Each car that Hyundai tests laps the Nürburgring 480 times in both wet and dry conditions, this is to simulate over 100,000 miles in less than six weeks. The track itself has 73 corners spread out over 12.8 miles and is infamous worldwide.
