Hyundai Turbo R-Spec Model Joins Veloster Line-Up

2014 Veloster Turbo R-Spec 01

Few days ago, at the opening of Los Angeles Auto Show, Hyundai announced the addition of the Veloster Turbo R-Spec to its line-up at the Los Angeles Auto Show. The heart of the R-Spec is the responsive, aftermarket-tunable 1.6-liter, direct-injected, turbocharged engine, along with unique design cues, enhanced chassis tuning, a B&M Racing® Sport Shifter, and the lowest price point in the Veloster Turbo lineup. R-Spec production will begin in December 2013 with availability in early February 2014.

Veloster Turbo R-Spec is the fourth R-Spec model in Hyundai’s lineup, following in the footsteps of Genesis Coupe 2.0T R-Spec, Genesis Coupe 3.8 R-Spec and Genesis 5.0 R-Spec. R-Spec represents the ultimate performance version of each of these models. For Veloster Turbo R-Spec, sport suspension and steering settings have been retuned for optimum responsiveness, with higher spring rates and a more rigid transmission mount. On the powertrain side, R-Spec is available only with the 6-speed manual transmission, and a short-throw B&M Sport Shifter has been added for a tighter, more direct shift feel.

 

 

SEMA 2013 – Bisimoto Hyundai Genesis Coupe 1000 hp

sema-hyundai-genesis-coupe

SEMA 2013 – Bisimoto Hyundai Genesis Coupe 1000 hp: high-powered concept vehicles at the annual SEMA (Specialty Equipment Market Association) show in Las Vegas.

The highlight of its stand will be this one-off 2013 Genesis Coupe prepared by the highly regarded SoCal tuner team at Bisimoto Engineering. Finished in Electric Blue with a carbon fiber hood and decklid, the Bisimoto Hyundai Genesis Coupe packs a highly modified version of the automaker’s 3.8-liter Lambda V6 engine that cranks out 1,000 horsepower. Despite a serious internal reworking and the addition of two Bisimoto/Turbonetics BTX6462 turbochargers, the heart of this monster motor remains the standard-issue Hyundai 3.8L engine block.

Fitted with a full Bisimoto roll cage, Racepack IQ3 dash and Buddy Club racing seats, Hyundai’s ultra-spec road rager also boasts a Progress coilover suspension system and rolls on super-sticky Toyo R888 R-Compound tires wrapped around staggered-width 20-inch Incurve alloy wheels. Power heads to the rear wheels via a custom-spec Action Ironman clutch. If past experience holds true, expect Hyundai to roll out several more outrageous offerings at this year’s SEMA gathering that will no doubt be joined by a host of other over-the-top creations from various other manufacturers.

The Korean car maker has revealed two show cars–the 1,000 horsepower Bisimoto Genesis Coupeand “Yellowcake” Veloster Turbo. The third SEMA concept is another Genesis Coupe, with a retina-searing paint job of its own.

The JP Edition Genesis Coupe -a collaboration between Hyundai and tuner John Pangilinan – sports a custom hue called Atlantic Blue. The name sounds a lot more mellow than the SEMA Veloster’s ‘Yellowcake” paint, but after one look at this Genesis, you’ll be convinced that it’s radioactive. Assuming your retinas haven’t melted.

The intense paint is complimented by fender flares, an APR carbon-fiber splitter, Seibon carbon-fiber side and rear lip kits, and custom headlights with V-LEDs.

The JP Edition Genesis Coupe rides on 19-inch MORR VS52 wheels and Toyo Proxes tires. To make sure there isn’t any space between tire and wheel well, the Genesis Coupe was also treated to a lower ride height.

Under the hood, the emphasis was on affordability as much as performance. Modifications were limited to bolt-on parts like an AEM cold air intake and ARK exhaust system. This car lets its eye-catching exterior do most of the talking.

With that in mind, the Recaro sport seats and Takata racing harnesses might seem a bit unnecessary, but what SEMA car would be complete without a little exaggeration? The interior was also fitted with Katzkin suede trim and an upgraded Alpine audio system.

The new Hyundai Genesis Premium Sedan Officially Unveiled

Hyundai motor Company yesterday held “‘All-New Genesis Media Preview” and officially unveiled the first image renderings of the car. The purpose of the pre-launch media event was to promote its domestic launch scheduled later this year. Staging its world-premiere in Korea, the all-new Genesis will debut in major markets next year.

Since its introduction in 2009, Hyundai’s unique design philosophy ‘Fluidic Sculpture’ has evolved to the next level and the all-new Genesis is the first model to adopt Fluidic Sculpture 2.0. It is defined by core elements: Simple and harmonious design with refined fluidic design elements, modern Hyundai look with a singular hexagonal grille, easy-to-understand and pleasant design and rich visuotactile color, material and finishing of the car. The all-new Genesis offers top-class driving and ride & handling performances.

Application of electronic control suspension such as Advanced Traction Cornering Control (ATCC) enables greater stability in corners. Rack-mounted Motor Driven Electric Power Steering (R-MDPS) was first applied to the model with a variable gear ratio, which provides high-speed stability and direct response at low and medium speeds.

Hyundai’s ‘HTRAC’ all-wheel drive system will also be available for the first time on the all-new Genesis. The advanced HTRAC system electronically controls torque split between the front and rear axles depending on road and driving conditions, offering greater stability on slippery roads and in corners. It also allows drivers to select driving modes for a sophisticated and tailored driving experience.

The all-new Genesis significantly improved its safety in crash tests due to improved body structure and rigidity.

Its torsional and bending stiffness have been increased by applying more ultra-high-strength steel, hot-stamping and double-section structure on the front, partitioned engine room design as well as improved rear and center floor structures.

Passenger safety has been improved by the application of advanced seatbelt functions such as Emergency Fastening Device system (EFD), which tightly fastens passengers in crashes, and Pre-Safe seatbelt, which warns of danger in advance by tightening the seatbelt.
