The new 2016 Hyundai Tucson has been given a major off-roading overhaul for next month’s Specialty Equipment Market Association (SEMA) show, by the Rockstar Performance Garage.

Shown here in a digitally enhanced image produced by well-known automotive ‘photochopper’ and rendering artist Jon Sibal, the one-off Hyundai Tucson special picks up a long list of enhancements.

The standout upgrade is to the Tucson’s suspension, now six inches (152mm) taller and packing a custom adjustable shocks and struts setup.

All of that is built into reconstructed wheel wells, along with some KMC 17-inch ‘Bully’ wheels shod with 32-inch Mickey Thompson rubber.

Hyundai’s 1.6 litre Gamma four-cylinder petrol engine provides power, and although exact outputs are yet to be revealed, the setup is enhanced with upgraded turbo piping, K&N intake, Mishimoto intercooler and a high-flow Magnatec exhaust.

Check out the full list of added bits below, and watch for the RPG Tucson to debut at the SEMA show on November 3.
