Bisimoto Engineering Hyundai Genesis CoupeEnlarge Photo
Hyundai has unveiled its first 2013 SEMA show car, and it's a screamer.
The bright blue Genesis Coupe, modified by Bisimoto Engineering, has 1,000 horsepower. What else is there to say, really?
Bisimoto started with a stock Genesis 3.8 R-Spec and its naturally aspirated V-6. It then added two turbochargers and gave the engine's internals a thorough working over, adding forged pistons, a more robust fuel pump, and a host of other modifications.
To make the exterior just as aggressive as the steroidal motor, Bisimoto created its own custom Electric Blue paint and added an ARK hood and carbon fiber decklid.
The Genesis hunkers down on 20-inch Incurve aluminum wheels and, with its exposed radiator showing through the gaping maw of a front fascia, it looks ready to devour anything in its path.
On the inside, the stock Genesis' luxuries are replaced with racing hardware, including a roll cage, racing seats and harnesses.
Hyundai says the Bisimoto Genesis was supposed to combine "the reliability of a street car but with the outrageous power of a no-holds-barred racer." So far, it seems more race car than a street car.
Outrageous SEMA cars are nothing new, but a Genesis Coupe with the power of a Bugatti Veyron will probably get some attention on the Vegas show floor.
Look for more wild SEMA concepts as the show's November 5 opening date approaches.
