Hyundai to Bring More Powerful, European Inspired Sonata 2.0T to SEMA Show

With ARK Performance and its superchargedGenesis Coupe covering the performance base, Hyundai has another car up its 2010SEMA show sleeve bent onattracting the calmer, more discerning luxury aftermarket buyer:the 2011 Sonata 2.0 Turbo.

The show car’s fabricators say that Mercedes-Benz, Ferrari, and Porsche sports cars inspired their design direction. Its aggressive exterior lines, for example, take much from the Brabus CLS Rocket. The car rides on 20-inch one-piece wheels as well, much like the Rocket.

Inside, “strategically placed stitched leather” reminiscent of the Ferrari F430 wraps nearly every interior surface. Carbon fiber accents add more sportiness to the Korean car’s repertoire.

Under the hood, engineers added an upgraded turbo, exhaust, and intake systems. No word on power output, but it should be considerably more than the stock 2.0-liter four-cylinder turbo’s 274 horsepower.
