Ah, of course, Japan is RHD anyway.

I prefer the 4 doors of the i30N anyway although would prefer the Veloster to the fastback version.
Yet South Korea are LHD - funny old world.

It was just the Mini Clubman we got the door on the wrong side for. Other asymmetrical cars like the Veloster and Nissan Cube were done with LHD and RHD bodyshells.

Same with the mk2 with RHD as well as the LHD above. They just don't sell the mk2 here.

I'm not sure if I am interpreting your statement correctly but Hyundai is a Korean brand and Korea is a left hand drive market.

This is an engine, intended for use in an aeroplane, but I didn't know it existed, or that H layout engines existed.



KHD720 aircraft engine. Two flat 16s put together into an H32, producing 5,900 bhp.

Perhaps the most successful H-layout aero engine was the Napier Sabre, as used in the WW2 Hawker Typhoon fighter.
This was a H-24, 2200-3500 hp.

5190 Nm at 3800 rpm, going by 2065 kW at 3800 rpm. Peak torque may be higher.

Ha ha yeah sorry, I think you got fairly well swooped upon by a rampaging flock of petards and I was the final one hehe

Anyway, I was at a Hyundai dealer a couple of days ago and they had two of those velosters on the floor. This new model looks so much better than the previous one and they look relatively roomy inside. Speaking about that previous model here in Australia they seem to be mostly driven by a particular type of person - cashed up bogan females.

I actually took one for a test drive but didn't buy it because it had horrible, crashy suspension, a thrashy, loud engine and really questionable build and material quality. Rear headroom was very poor, too. It did look nice, though.

5th generation Renault Clio.

I'm being facetious but, considering there's a Renault dealer in my town, I hadn't registered seeing a latest Clio until today.

I can well believe Renault are in trouble. Clios used to be ubiquitous but they seem to be being replaced by Hyundais and Kias, A1s or mini-SUVs.
