ARK Performance has teamed up with Hyundai to modify the new 2012 Veloster for the upcoming SEMA Show. The car will sport a modified engine with supporting suspension work, as well as interior and exterior changes, and will be on display at the Las Vegas show from Tuesday, November 1, through Friday, November 4.
ARK Performance plans to breathe on the Veloster’s 1.6 liter four banger with a twin-scroll turbocharger that blows through a custom intercooler on its way to the intake valves. Exhaust gasses are spent through a custom turbo manifold and dual exhaust system. The engine is expected to make 210 horsepower – a 34 percent improvement over the stock engine.
The suspension is set to a receive a coilover setup, new control arms, front and rear sway bars, and a front strut bars. A big brake kit with six-piston calipers will peek from behind Yokohama Advan RZ Gunmetal wheels shod with Nitto NT05 tires.
A custom rally-style roll-cage will be fitted to the interior that will be upgraded with Alcantara trim seemingly everywhere, and an aftermarket audio system complete with new speakers, subwoofers and amplifiers.
New exterior lighting, front and rear bumpers, side skirts and a rear spoiler will also make their way onto the Veloster. Wide-body fenders – front and rear – will house the new wheel and tire package. The exterior will be finished off in a custom bright green and flat grey paint scheme.
