The famous Nürburgring

The Nürburgring is one of the most famous race tracks in Germany and one of the most famous race tracks in the world. With a length of 20.832 km, 73 curves, constantly changing road surfaces and 300 meters in height, the Nürburgring is considered one of the most technically demanding race tracks in the world.

HMETC in Rüsselsheim modified Genesis

To ensure performance, stability and stability for a fast Nordschleife cruise, the Genesis relies on the G70 3.3T sports sedan. Thanks to its innovative technology, dynamic driving behavior and athletic, coupé-like design, the G70 is, according to Donckerwolke, the ideal base for a racing taxi.

In cooperation with the Hyundai Motor Europe Technical Center (HMETC) in Rüsselsheim, the chassis and dampers of the G70 were further improved. The facility serves as a hub for developing the performance and durability of Genesis vehicles in Europe.

To ensure optimal brake cooling, additional brake ducts are vented directly from the front bumper to the front wheel arch, while heat shields on the transmission oil cooling ducts prevent the transmission from overheating in racing conditions .

Michelin tire partner

To ensure the best tires for the track, Genesis and Michelin have teamed up to equip the G70 Track Taxi with the special MICHELIN Pilot Sport 4S sports tires, guaranteeing unparalleled performance in all weather conditions.

Painted in an eye-catching Genesis orange exterior, the G70 Track Taxi makes a striking statement against the green of the Nürburgring track.

“The launch of the Genesis Track Taxi Nordschleife program is an important step in our journey to deliver bold, high-performance vehicles that reflect the power, handling and performance of the brand. “It underlines the brand’s commitment to incorporate experience gained into further product development cars,” Donckerwolke said “The Track Taxi Nordschleife app will give Genesis customers a hands-on opportunity to experience Genesis like never before.”
