Hyundai’s Secret Proving Ground is Made of Chocolate
Elliot Wix, head of imprint analysis, said: “At Hyundai, we revel in taking on challenges – and we firmly believe that Cacao Corner is cause for celebration. Its development provided an immediate boost for the High Performance Vehicles and Motorsport Division, who work tirelessly to make sure that the N-series Hyundais is not just powerful, but also incredibly precise.
