An marathon shoot amidst record-setting 121° F  temperatures at the world-famous Willow Springs International Speedway during a Covid-19 outbreak? "Sign me up!"

That's exactly what we set out to do. Hyundai was launching two all-new, motorsports flagship N models to coincide with the New York Auto Show: the Kona N and Elantra N. So we put these two 280-hp Turbo race cars through their paces on the track, and created eight action-packed, feature-touting videos and over fifty high-detail photography assets “per car“ to use for all forms of U.S. marketing.

In addition to the photography and video, we created a 360° CGI real-time engine configurator featuring the swankiest pit garage, ever.
