A 746kW (1000hp) concept version of the Hyundai Genesis Coupe has been revealed ahead of its debut at November’s 2013 SEMA aftermarket show in Las Vegas.
Built in conjunction with California-based Bisimoto Engineering, the Hyundai Genesis Coupe concept is powered by a twin-turbocharged engine based on the 260kW/400Nm naturally aspirated 3.8-litre V6 petrol unit from the North American market’s Genesis Coupe 3.8 R-Spec.
Designed to be as reliable as a street car but with the “outrageous power” of a full-tilt racing car, the concept is finished in custom Electric Blue paint and features a carbonfibre bonnet and bootlid and a stainless steel exhaust.
Under-bonnet modifications include steel connecting rods, forged pistons, new camshafts and an intercooler while the rest of the car has been treated to a roll cage, racing seats and harnesses, coil-over suspension and white 20-inch aluminium wheels.
The 2013 SEMA show kicks off at the Las Vegas Convention Centre from November 5.
