Vaccar Sets Sights on Kia
It's somewhat obvious that Vaccar has become quite accustomed with the South Korean powerhouse known as Hyundai Motor Group – most notably our work with Hyundai Motor America and concept vehicles for events such as the SEMA Show – however, we've oddly not touched the related platforms of Kia Motors.
Consider it a sign of sorts, but as of September 2020, Vaccar has started stocking and distributing aftermarket performance and restyling accessories for newer Kia models, including the Stinger, K5 and Telluride - with more to come in the weeks that follow. There are also some significant project discussion in the works, but for now we look forward to welcoming some new motoring friends to our family.
Eibach Delivers the Suspension Upgrades You Demand for Veloster Turbo/N & Elantra Sport/GT!
We've had the pleasure of working with Eibach for our custom and concept vehicles over the years, and we're especially excited to see them supporting all-new Hyundai vehicles. The Veloster Turbo/N and Elantra Sport/GT are growing segments in our industry, so it's important when a manufacturer steps up to produce the aftermarket product support we all desire! Vaccar offers Eibach products shipped direct to your door - these new products are available now and currently live on our webstore.
Now available for 2018+ Hyundai Elantra and Veloster, Eibach PRO-KIT performance springs deliver upgraded performance and ride comfort using our industry leading spring winding technology.
By lowering the Center of Gravity (CoG) the PRO-KIT increases steering response and improves vehicle dynamics for a sportier, more balanced feel. Additionally, the reduction in fender gap and ground clearance also contributes to an enhanced aesthetic.
Complete your suspension upgrade with an Eibach ANTI-ROLL-KIT. Our sway bars allow critical fine-tuning of your Elantra's handling characteristics by reducing body roll through increased design stiffness over stock bars. The result: increased handling and cornering grip in any performance-driving situation.
Manufactured from cold-formed steel alloy for precision performance and finished with a long lasting red powder coat finish, the ANTI-ROLL-KIT comes complete with required mounting hardware.
Enhance your Veloster or Elantra's handling performance with our fully adjustable Eibach END-LINK Kit. These end links help improve stabilizer bar performance and provide increased steering response by minimizing deflection in the suspension system. Eibach end links are sold in pairs and feature easy to adjust bodies and heavy-duty rod ends.
Vaccar has once again teamed up with Winner International, makers of The Club, for the debut of a special edition vehicle that makes use of a proven OE platform with the latest aftermarket trends and accessories: the recently restyled 2020 Hyundai Veloster, equipped with a prototype turbocharger kit for the 2.0l drivetrain.
Vaccar has been unveiling custom creations at the SEMA Show since 2009, and the latest Vaccar Veloster concept will mark their 10-year anniversary of managing OEM projects for the trade event. The vehicle will make it's debut at the 2019 SEMA Show in Las Vegas on Tuesday, Nov. 5th in the Winner International booth (#12853, North Hall) and remain on display through Nov. 8th. There is a dedicated meet & greet time slot alongside Aaron Vaccar and the concept in the booth from 2-4PM on Thursday, Nov. 7th.
Winner International has an extensive history with Vaccar and their unique vehicles for the display and promotion of Winner Int'l's The Club product lines. Aaron Vaccar's affinity for the brand has been strengthened over the years of their various sponsorships together, once including the construction of a commemorative car for Jim Winner, their founder.
“The Vaccar Veloster 'Club Car Series' concept vehicle is all about the race-meets-street tuner that boasts all the attention getting styling points and performance of a track car, cultivated with the comfort and functional demands of a ‘daily driver’. Since it's our 10th anniversary at SEMA and with The Club, we decided to have some fun with a different theme and livery, which might not have been expected from us – including a couple symbolic cues, if you can spot them,” Aaron states.
Build partners that have donated product and services for on the Vaccar Kona include: AEM; Advert Graphix; AMSOIL; Blood & Grease; Clinched Flares; The Club; Eibach; Konig Wheels; Mishimoto; Pierce Motorsports; Roadwire; Schrader Sensors; Toyo Tires.

#ClubKona: SEMA Show Photos
With just about 1 month until SEMA Show on the calendar, Vaccar will transform an all-new Hyundai Kona into their latest concept creation. Here, we get a first look at what the platform looks like off the assembly line, and before customization. Since restyling ideas and performance upgrades are estimated up to half of a year in advance of taking delivery of the most OEM project cars, the Vaccar team likes to spend time with the vehicle as if it were their own. Aaron Vaccar says, "Once we get the real car actually in our hands, I want to make sure our aftermarket changes make sense - functionally and stylistically."
For 2018, Vaccar welcomes show-goers to their club; “The Club Kona.” This playful guise is actually the themeing around a collaborative new project vehicle that ties in the Vaccar Co., Winner International (makers of The Club), and Hyundai Motor America with their all-new 2018 Kona. The Club Kona, which has it's own postcards, stickers and t-shirts (free to win and available to purchase) is Vaccar's own secret (and fictitious) Hawaiian tiki-club of sorts. The Vaccar Kona concept vehicle will debut Oct. 30-Nov 2 in Las Vegas for SEMA Show at The Club booth #12417, including a special meet & greet Thursday from 2-4pm.
The Club Kona does have it's own website, which will include weekly uploads to showcase the latest development of the Vaccar Kona concept, leading up to it's unveiling; additional project details, partner news, media and more will also be viewable at www.vaccar.co/clubkona.
The Vaccar Tucson was invited to take part of a special event with Hot Wheels for their Legends Tour stop in Miami (Doral, FL) on Sept. 8th, 2018.
