For the fourth straight year, Hyundai has partnered with Bisimoto Engineering--an Ontario, California, tuning shop and engineering company--to create a downright crazy show vehicle for the annual Specialty Equipment Manufacturer's Association (SEMA) show. This year it's a pimped out 2016 Tucson crossover and it makes more than 700 horsepower.
Starting with Hyundai’s 2.4-liter “Theta-II” four-cylinder engine, Bisimoto Engineering strengthened the internals to handle a huge boost in power and make it flex-fuel capable, then added a high-boost Turbonetics BTX-6465 Billet turbocharger, a Spearco intercooler, and an upgraded engine management system. The result is more than 700 horsepower that flows to all four wheels through a six-speed manual transmission.
Bisimoto slammed the Tucson to the ground with an Air Ride Equipment airbag suspension, and enhanced the wicked stance with fifteen52 TARMAC R43 19x8.5 wheels mounted on R compound Toyo R888 tires. Exterior modifications include a custom grille insert, Hyundai mudflaps, and DriftMotion aluminum piping.

Inside, the Bisimoto Tucson has a full roll cage to hint at its performance potential, as well as an Infinity 650-watt sound system, a Racepak IQ3 dash, a Buddy Club racing seat, custom leather upholstery, and a Buddy Club short-throw shifter.
The Bisimoto Tucson will be unveiled at the 2015 SEMA show in Las Vegas on November 3rd.
