Builder Neil Tjin turned to underground racing for inspiration to create this mad, 500hp racer. The Genesis coupe was revealed at Hyundai’s press conference in the company’s booth (#24387) on November 3.
At the heart of the Genesis Coupe is Hyundai’s 3.8L “Lambda” V6 engine, which has been boosted via a Vortech supercharger kit built by the power gurus from Bisimoto Engineering. With the addition of a free-flowing exhaust system, Vortech front mount intercooler and blow-off valve, the vehicle now produces more than 500 hp.
Featuring Rotiform 19-in. three-piece HUR wheels, custom Baer x CBA Extreme Plus brake calipers and Falken FK345 tires, the vehicle’s stopping power is now on par with its go-fast performance.
The vehicle now sits lower on KW coilovers to give a more aggressive stance. Unique Fabrication supplied a custom front lip, rear spoiler and custom trunk lid, and the exterior was finished in a custom Tjin green Axalta paint job.
