Hyundai is partnering up with Bisimoto Engineering once again to help build a unique show car for this year’s SEMA Show. This time the project will be based on the Genesis Coupe, with a target to reach 1000hp (746kW).
Bisimoto was enlisted last year for an Elantra-based project. For the Genesis, it’s going to be all about outright power and performance while also maintaining a good degree of reliability. Bisi Ezerioha, founder of Bisimoto, spoke about the project, saying,
“The key to producing reliable, high horsepower engines goes well beyond the design, engineering and fabrication of performance parts.
“The core powerplant must be strong enough to withstand advanced modifications. The Genesis Coupe 3.8-litre Lambda engine is a thoroughly robust powerplant, and Bisimoto Engineering is excited to develop it to its full potential for the rigors of competitive motorsport.”
Using a range of performance modifications, such as Level 2.4 camshafts, new injectors, new steel conrods, Arias forged pistons, and a Magnafuel 750 fuel pump, the engine is set to produce a whopping 746kW.
Additional engine mods include a pair of Turbonetics BTX6462 turbochargers, a Supertech valvetrain, an AEM Infinity engine computer, and a Spearco intercooler.
In other areas, Hyundai and Bisimoto are planning to fit a full roll cage system, Progress coilover adjustable suspension, and a set of Incurve 20-inch alloy wheels. The exterior will also showcase a carbon fibre rear spoiler, an ARK bonnet, and an Electric Blue paint scheme with Denmatic graphics.
The car is anticipated to be one of the highlight Hyundais of the SEMA Show, previewing seemingly endless tuning possibilities for the latest Genesis. The event takes place in Las Vegas from November 5 to 8.
