A Hyundai Genesis Coupe R-Spec modified by ARK performance will be displayed at the automaker’s SEMA show stand this year. ARK performance updated the Genesis Coupe’s performance and added visual enhancements, as well.
While Hyundai already improved the Genesis Coupe’s 3.8-liter V-6 for 2013 by adding direct-injection, the SEMA show car gets bumped another 47 hp and 45 lb-ft of torque (now at 395 hp and 340 lb-ft) with a Brian Crower 4.2-liter stroker kit enhanced by an intake, oil cooler, lightweight pullies, and ceramic-coated headers from ARK performance. To handle the addition power, the drivetrain has been upgraded with an ARK carbon plate clutch kit with a limited-slip differential from Cusco. Nitto NT05 tires wrapped around Yokohama ADVAN RS2 alloy wheels put the power to the ground. A six-piston Big Brake kit front and rear brings the customized Genesis Coupe R-Spec to a stop.
No SEMA show car would be complete without wild interior and exterior modifications. Outside, the Genesis Coupe now sports a carbon fiber hood with heat extractor vents and a carbon wing out back. An aggressive front splitter, rear diffuser, and rear overfenders create a widebody effect. A custom interior from JPM Coachworks features a Sparco steering wheel and racing seats finished in red, while Cusco supplies the eight-point roll cage.
