RM460 mid-engine V8 Genesis Coupe gets rendered ahead of SEMA debut | Rpmgo.com



At the end of the month and beginning of November, we will be flooded with a plethora of highly customized cars, thanks to the SEMA show which will be held in Las Vegas and host the biggest aftermarket manufacturer summit.

One of the most interesting things to be unveiled there will be the RM460 Genesis Coupe, based on the very popular Hyundai model. Of course we’ve been treated last year and will see a few other Genesis Coupes, but this one truly stands out as it will be powered by a massive V8 engine, borrowed from the Genesis sedan, which will be mounted in the middle of the car.

In order to achieve the modification, the team at Rhys Millen Racing have thrown out the back seats, so that the 4.6-liter Tau V8 will rest snugly and provide the perfect balance. Of course it has also seen its share of tweaks, as eight individual throttle bodies were fitted, alongside a set of JE pistons and a new engine management system from AEM. All of this means that it will now develop around 500 HP.

The car also didn’t manage to escape the engineers, as they fitted a brand new five-speed sequential gearbox, a set of KW coilovers to the stock suspension and a new StopTech braking system. The exterior saw the addition of a set of HRE 560 Series 20-inch wheels, wrapped in Toyo T1R ties, not to mention the new RMR Signature Edition body kit, complete with carbon fiber spoilers and covered in a custom paint job in RM Onyx HD from BASF. Last but not least, the interior has seen its sports seats wrapped in alcantara and carbon fiber, thanks to Sparco, and a new high quality sound system, from Infinity.

In case you’re going to SEMA, you should definitely check out this very attractive model.
