Supercharged Hyundai Genesis Coupe Hurricane to Hit SEMA Show

If one thing's for sure, Hyundai will have a strong presence at this year's edition of the SEMA aftermarket show in Las Vegas in November. The South Korean automaker, which has already shown us two Veloster tuning proposals, has now released details on another project, this time based on the Genesis Coupe V6.
The Genesis Coupe Hurricane SC was developed by Hyundai America Technical Center Inc. (HATCI) in cooperation with Magnuson Products, Rhys Millen Racing, Harman International and Torvec Inc.
HATCI says it has been working on the modified Genesis Coupe for the past two years with its engineers having enhanced all aspects of the car including the engine, chassis and styling.
The standard Genesis Coupe's 3.8-liter V6 engine benefits from a new supercharger with a liquid to air intercooler developed by HATCI and Manguson, which helps lift output to more than 450 horsepower.
“The HATCI and Magnuson supercharger demonstrates the high-performance potential of Genesis Coupe’s V-6 engine – the car was engineered to handle this kind of extra power,” said David Dutko, senior engineer, HATCI. “Our HATCI engineers have been working for years with Magnuson to ensure high engine output is available on future Hyundai vehicles.”
Other performance modifications include IsoTorque differential, a free flowing exhaust system and air intake, Brembo six piston brake kit with cross drilled front and rear rotors brakes, and new 19-inch Enkei wheels shod in Hankook tires.
Rhys Millen Racing (RMR) provided their expertise on the styling front while the coupe also gets a modified Harman International high level Lexicon audio system.
