It seems that before any recent edition of the SEMA show in Las Vegas, we are assaulted with dozens of highly customized cars. But since its introduction, the Hyundai Genesis Coupe has been the preferred target for many tuning and performance companies.
One of them is led by John Hennessey, which recently partnered with Hyunday in order to form a Tuner School, with participants invited to work on a special Genesis Coupe model.
After teaching them anything from tuning engines to fitting turbo/superchargers, the students have revealed their creation, a monster Genesis developing over 500 HP and around 465 lb-ft of torque. This is due to a single 66 mm turbocharger, a new fuel system with high flow injectors and many other aftermarket parts. This means that it will do 0 to 60 in just 3.9 seconds, and pass a drag strip’s quarter mile in 12.5 seconds.
But what’s really interesting about the car is that it is wrapped completely in carbon fiber, giving it a very unique look, which will surely attract many eyes when it will be presented at next week’s SEMA show in Las Vegas.
