ARK Performance Genesis Coupe R-Spec Track Edition

Hyundai teamed up with ARK Performance to create an ultra-high-performance track edition based on the Genesis Coupe R-Spec model. The ARK super-tuner track edition will debut with the Hyundai brand at the 2012 SEMA show. This special ARK model takes the new Genesis Coupe 3.8-liter, direct-injected engine to an impressive 395 horsepower at 6800 rpm, with axle-flexing torque of 340 lb.-ft. at 5400 rpm. From the exterior, the ARK design theme takes the muscular character lines of the Genesis Coupe to the extreme, with race-like flared over-fenders, an aggressive front splitter, and carbon-fiber hood with heat-extractor vents.

ARK Performance Veloster Alpine Edition

ARK Performance has created a Veloster sport coupe concept focused on an extreme sports alpine-enthusiast lifestyle. This concept offers a finely tailored interior using materials, colors and design themes fitting an extreme winter sports lifestyle. The Veloster Alpine concept expands on original Veloster functional design strengths, such as the hidden third door and wide-opening rear hatch with a focused interior theme. JPM Coachworks created the interior environment with a blend of Alcantara®, fine Italian leather and WeatherTek® breathable fabric. These materials were chosen specifically for their durability in wet environments, including leather that repels mildew and a WeatherTek material commonly used in snow apparel.

Bisimoto Engineering Elantra GT Concept

In the Elantra GT's first concept appearance at SEMA, Bisimoto Engineering gave the car a complete re-working with an emphasis on outrageous performance gains. Starting with forged Arias pistons, Bisimoto con-rods and Turbonetics turbocharger, AEM water-methanol injection and Bisimoto high-pressure injectors, the Bisimoto Elantra GT is one of the highest specific-output Hyundais ever created, muscling 600+ horsepower out of the 1.8-liter "Nu" engine family powerplant.

Cosworth Engineering Genesis Racing Series Concept

This special Cosworth-tuned model takes the new Genesis Coupe 3.8-liter, direct-injected engine to racecar levels, with an impressive 389 horsepower at 6400 rpm, and tire-shredding torque of 325 lb.-ft. at 5100 rpm, all with daily-driving civility. From the exterior, the Cosworth design theme radiates a retina-bending satin-gloss blue finish, aero front splitter, gunmetal-finish lightweight racing wheels, integrated rear spoiler, and blackout rear diffuser. While unmistakably race-oriented, the Cosworth concept retains the original Genesis Coupe design language, focusing most on astounding performance gains and real-world performance potential.

FuelCulture Genesis Coupe Turbo Concept

Hyundai and FuelCulture.com teamed up to modify a Genesis Coupe for SEMA and demonstrate how customization can be achieved by the enthusiast, within budget, resulting in cars that are as unique as the people who drive them. From engine to suspension upgrades, and everything in between, the partnership between Hyundai and FuelCulture.com exhibits how easily car customization can be achieved. The tuned, Apple Red Genesis Coupe is set to achieve 315 horsepower and 242 lb.-ft. of torque.

JP Edition Veloster Turbo

Hyundai partnered with John Pangilinan to create a brilliant mint green Veloster concept. Paint supplier BASF was consulted as the unique supplier of the Mint Green exterior finish for the concept. The 1.6-liter, direct-injected Veloster engine receives an ARK performance exhaust, while the suspension adds KW coilovers, Whiteline sway bars and anti-lift kit, and a Brembo® big brake kit. Blacked-out Ray's Gram Lights Xtreme57 Wheels and Toyo Proxes T1 Sport tires fill in the bright mint green TS Designs fender flares by Jon Sibal.

Hyundai Design and Technical Center "Velocity" Concept

Hyundai America's internal design and technical center created the "Velocity" factory-tuner concept for the company's popular Veloster sport coupe. The Velocity concept expands on all of the original Veloster concept strengths in an aggressive, no-holds-barred factory-racer design language. Huge 19 x 9.0 inch, HRE lightweight satin-charcoal racing wheels, tarmac-scraping lower body kit with generous front and rear brake cooling ducts, lift-reducing rear diffuser, oversized rear wing, and #1 racecar design graphic. While unmistakably racetrack-oriented, the Velocity concept retains the original Veloster silhouette, focusing on exponential performance gains and functional design cues.
