More about Richard
Before buying this Turbo SE, Richard had a Hyundai 1.0 i20 Turbo Edition. He was eager to get more power on this car and once he remapped it he was officially hooked! As soon as he remapped the car, it sped up to 125 horsepower!
Richard has since made improving his cars a hobby and has enjoyed it immensely. We asked him what his dream car would be ‘My attainable dream car it would be fun to have a go in the GR Yaris, but the new Ferrari 296 GTB looks like a great car if we ignore the budget.’
Like many, Richard likes to attend car meets and told us he often likes to attend car events such as Dyno Day.
Facebook communities are a great way for like-minded car fanatics to come together and talk and share all things car related! Richard is a part of a community on Facebook for Veloster owners in the UK as well as his local car group too!
