The heart of the Hyundai Genesis Coupe Hurricane SC is the company’s V6 3.8-liter that has gotten a liquid to air intercooler, a supercharger, a free flowing sport exhaust system, plus a bunch of other performance components in order to be able to develop more than 450 hp.

The aforementioned Torvec Inc. was in charge of creating the IsoTorque differential to improve the traction capability and the handling of the car, and the company stated that thanks to this new differential, the car is quicker by one second on the Hyundai road course in comparison to the regular Genesis Coupe.

The car has also been fitted with a stiffer Blistein suspension along with a 6-piston Brembo brake system. As you can see, the Genesis Coupe Hurricane SC is riding on a new set of 19-inch alloys that are wrapped around in high performance tires that measure 245/40 for the front wheels and 275/35 for the rear ones.
