Hyundai Genesis Coupe Tuned To Produce 1000 HP For SEMA Show

Hyundai announced today that it has partnered with tuning group Bisimoto Engineering to prepare a high-powered car for the 2013 Specialty Equipment Market Association show in November. In this case, Bisimoto took a standard 2013 Hyundai Genesis Coupe 3.8 R-Spec and extensively modified its engine.

A standard Hyundai Genesis Coupe 3.8 R-Spec extracts 348 hp and 295 lb-ft of torque from its 3.8-liter V-6 engine, but Bisimoto rebuilt the engine with custom connecting rods, pistons, gaskets, camshafts, and fuel injectors. Add in a pair of turbochargers, an upgraded radiator, and various other modifications, and Bisimoto says its SEMA-ready Hyundai Genesis Coupe now boasts 1000 hp.

To keep pace with the engine, the rest of the Hyundai Genesis Coupe was also thoroughly upgraded. The car now features a roll cage, racing seats and harnesses, a stronger driveshaft, 20-inch wheels with Toyo R888 racing tires, and a coilover suspension setup. A new body kit, with a front fascia that is open to expose the car's intercooler, is slathered in Electric Blue paint.

Hyundai has a long tradition of bringing brightly-colored and extremely powerful tuner cars to the annual SEMA show in Las Vegas. Last year, the company's display included a 600-hp Elantra GT hatchback, a 232-hp Veloster Turbo with snowboard racks, and even a Hyundai Genesis Coupe tweaked by Cosworth to produce 389 hp. Expect Hyundai to reveal more of its creations for this year's SEMA show over the coming months.
