Hyundai America's design and technical center has created a factory-tuner concept named "Velocity" based on its Veloster sport coupe. The Velocity concept will debut at the 2012 SEMA Show.

Hyundai says that Velocity maintains the silhouette of the original Veloster, but features a host of aggressive factory-racer design additions, including HRE wheels, a lower body kit, a rear diffuser, an oversized rear wing and #1 racecar design graphic.

"In creating Velocity, we were inspired to take the Veloster's original concept strengths to their fullest expression," said Chris Chapman, head of Hyundai's Irvine, California, design center. "Velocity gave out design and engineering teams license to take Veloster far beyond everyday production car limitations."

Hyundai reports that Velocity boasts more than 400 hp and 350 lb.-ft. of torque.

In addition the the engine modifications, Velocity also features Brembo four-piston calipers and two-piece rotors, Blistein springs with monotube dampers, and Kumho Ecsta SPT 275/35R19 high-performance summer tires.
