I’ve been a long time fan of the Hyundai Coupe models, especially the latest Genesis model and at the same time I hunted down many tuned models of the Genesis, so you can pretty much guess that this preview revealed by Hyundai and aftermarket performance equipment company GReddy made my day.
Dubbed the GReddy X Gen Street Genesis Coupe, and set to be revealed at this year’s SEMA show in Las Vegas, the model is based on an entry-level Genesis with a 2-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine. By putting all of its best equipment in the car, the Japanese company took the stock performance values of 210 HP and 223 lb-ft of torque to a dizzying 350 HP and 320 lb-ft (433 Nm). This translates in a 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) time of under 6 seconds.
The list of enhancements is pretty long so just bear with me: an upgraded turbocharged, a big front-mounted intercooler system, a cat-back exhaust system SE Spectrum Elite, MX racing downpipe, a set of fully adjustable coil-over Type-S suspension, new brake calipers with six pistons in the front and four in the back and many more. In order to make it look the part, the team also outfitted a lip spoiler, a carbon fiber hood, a big rear wing and placed the car on a set of Volk Racing G2 rims wrapped in Toyo performance tires. On the inside the seats were replaced with a set of Sparco racing ones, the gauges have been modified, alongside the boost controller and turbo timer.
After the debut of the model at SEMA, GReddy will sell all of the parts made for the Genesis Coupe. This doesn’t mean that their efforts won’t stop, as the company said it will continue and wants to push the engine to produce around 500 HP.
