European Rallycross event winner Frode Holte has unveiled his new Hyundai i20 Supercar for the 2014 season.
The launch took place at the Sorlandets Motorsport Show in Mandal, Norway, on Saturday.
"We have worked with this car for a long time," said Holte.
"No one has built a car like this for Supercar before. We are very excited to start testing for the season."
The Norwegian plans to contest the new World Rallycross Championship, but with the season's budget yet to be finalised, he could focus on the five-round European series that runs within the world championship calendar.
"We have a lot of testing to do before we are ready," said Holte.
"I really want to drive in the world championship, but if it isn't possible we are going to to the European championship, that's for sure."
This season will be the first time Holte has driven anything other than a Volvo in European competition.
He last contested a full European season in 2011, claiming his first overall victory at Essay in France.
Holte drove in the final two events of the 2013 series but did not to make it to the final.
