Hyundai IONIQ land speed record

On November 2, 2016, a modified production IONIQ set an FIA speed record, at 157.825 mph at Bonneville.
* nose was tweaked
* airdam was extended
* wiper delete
* some gaps taped
* air curtains sealed off
* mirror-delete
* lowered
* belly mods
* Goodyear EAGLE racing tires
It's fascinating that, again, when the reputation of the corporation is at stake, the convex, full disc, wheel covers are preferred, and the drag-reducing air curtains are abandoned.
It's an easy GOGGLE. Some nice high-res photos.
