The latest from the Rhys Millen-Hyundai collaboration is a winner: the RM500, a Genesis Coupe with Hyundai's 5.0-liter Tau V-8 under the hood. Aside from being powerful and sporty, the conversion also looks like it came that way from the factory.

The Tau V-8 engine in the RM500 isn't rated at a specific output, but it generates up to 429 horsepower in other Hyundai applications, making this an enticing addition to the Genesis Coupe range--even if it's only for show. As Millen himself put it, "The sleek and practical exterior modifications would allow this Genesis Coupe to look good parked in your driveway or turning laps at the track."
