Genesis Coupe news - In the beginning... - 2008

Hyundai always planned on targeting their upcoming
Genesis Coupe at the US tuning/drift scene, and now they’ve
invited some of the big aftermarket specialists to tweak the car before its
official launch later this year.

This is the HKS USA take on the car, which will be
shown at this year’s SEMA (Specialty Equipment Market Association) show in Las
 Vegas.

Based on the four-cylinder turbo version (not the
3.8-litre V6), the HKS Genesis gets a HKS GT turbocharger, a new exhaust/intake
system, modified ECU and adjustable suspension. The standard car pumps out
212bhp; expect the HKS version to exceed 300bhp.

The tweaked Genesis also
features what HKS are calling ‘functional ground effects’. As opposed to
‘dysfunctional ground effects’ we presume. Which sounds scary.
