SEMA 2012 Wrapup




Hyundai may have had one of the more impressive booths when it came to performance concept cars.  


Hyundai booth


Cosworth Hyundai Genesis
The Cosworth Genesis Racing Series Concept is looking for a series to showcase its 389 horsepower and 325 lb-ft of torque from the 3.8L V6 engine.  


Cosworth goodies
The Cosworth money shot.
Bisimoto Hyundai VelosterBisimoto Veloster

The Bisimoto Elantra GT pushes out 602 hp and 406 lb-ft of torque.  I love a car whose performance/engine list is far greater than all other mods combined.  The AEM water methanol kit and 320lph fuel pump keeps all cool under the hood.  Hankook Ventus tires wrap up the Buddy Club PF Racing SF Challenge wheels in a grip-generating 18×8.5 size.

The Bisimoto turbo kit (using Turbonetics BTX6462 turbo), steel rods, intake gasket, and Web Level 2.4 cams.  It also has Arias forged pistons, AEM Series 2 EMS, Spearco I/C, Golden Eagle sleeved block and intake manifold, Griffin Radiator, ARP studs, Portflow Custom headwork, and Supertech Valvetrain.  I believe the description you're looking for is “Fu@k!ng Sweet.”


Coupe R-Spec track edition
The ARK Genesis Coupe R-Spec Track Edition is modified with the ARK catalog, from headers, intake, clutch and flywheel, suspension, and crazy body kit.  The addition of a Brian Crower stroker kit ups displacement from 3.8L to 4.2L resulting in 395 hp and 370 lb-ft of torque.  This car is also ready for the track with Cusco 8 point roll cage, Sparco racing seats, and steering wheel.
 ARK Veloster
The ARK custom Veloster “Alpine” concept includes upgraded piping on the 1.6L turbocharger, bolt-ons and a custom exhaust that takes the car to 232hp (from 201 stock).  The ARK concept also has an ARK coilover system, big brake kit, and strut bar.  
This is the Hyundai Design and Technical Center “Velocity” concept car.  Cosworth helped coax 400hp and 350 lb-ft of torque from the car with an upgraded turbo, I/C, pistons, rods, fuel system, and engine management.The Velocity Veloster is a race focused concept car. Bilstein monotube dampers and springs provide the suspension.  The body kit could use a “wide load” transport escort.  


There must have been a run on mint green paint… The JP Edition Veloster Concept by John Pangilinan has custom wide bodywork, 19″ Gram Lights, KW coilovers, and a Whiteline rear sway bar.
The Hyundai Veloster RE:MIX Edition will be in production and in dealerships by the end of the year.  It is offered in an exclusive Color (Sprint Gray) with optional graphics package.  The RE:MIX body kit includes front spoiler, side skirts, and rear diffuser.  Lighting upgrades include projector headlights with LED accents, and LED Tail lights.  The RE:MIX edition also includes unique 18″ dark alloy wheels. It also has a 450 watt Dimension Premium audio system, AM/FM/Satellite/CD/MP3 player with 8 speakers, 8 inch subwoofer, and ipod auxiliary input jacks.
