The SEMA auto show is renowned for bringing all sorts of outlandish motor vehicles out to play. This year’s show will be no different, with American tuner ARK Performance set to debut its take on the 2015 Hyundai Genesis V8, equipped with a wider stance, bolt-on supercharger and various suspension tweaks.
ARK Performance will take the Genesis’s 5.0-litre ‘Tau’ V8 and bolt up a Rotax supercharger, an ARK GRiP free-flowing exhaust system with high-flow cats, downpipes, performance intake, race spec driveshaft, as well an upgrade to the engine management.
The chassis and suspension will also be heavily tweaked, featuring new Airrex air suspension at each end, ARK knuckles and control arms, front strut reinforcement bar, stiffened sway bars, as well as a Brembo big brake kit and ARK forged alloy wheels with Nitto tyres.
From the outside the ARK Performance Genesis will look fatter thanks to new wider front and rear bumper bars and guards, carbon fibre splitter and rear diffuser, and AR headlights. The interior will also feature special Katzin custom diamond stitched seats and door panels.
Lerry Liu marketing director ARK Performance, Inc. said:
“The AR550 concept focuses on refined performance that integrates directly with Hyundai’s ‘Design to Empower’ vision for the Genesis Sedan. This year we are focused on two core elements all under the new line of ARK Racing (AR) concepts for Hyundai’s. First, we focused on the power, handling, and most importantly the sound of the Hyundai power plant. Second, we integrated our high-performance racing technology to introduce a very unique and bold Hyundai vehicle.”
The car will be revealed in full at this year’s SEMA auto show in November. Stay tuned for a closer look at this insane Hyundai.
The 2015 Hyundai Genesis (V6 petrol only) will go on sale in Australia for the first time later this year.
