Another SEMA 2011 preview has gotten us all hot under the collar as we eagerly await next month's event.
In preparation for SEMA 2011 ARK Performance has been focusing their efforts on the Hyundai Veloster (renderings of which we had at the end of last month) and finished photos have now been released. The project's theme was to build a rally-inspired Veloster, a feat they achieved by using a custom twin-scroll turbocharger setup and high-flow exhaust system that boosts the output from a modest 138 to an impressive 210hp.
A custom bright green and flat gray paint scheme done by Beyond Autobody, complements the aggressive tuning upgrade that includes a six-piston brake kit, 8-point rally-style roll cage and DTP track coil-over system. Other suspension upgrades include front & rear upper sway bars, camber & control arms and GRIP dual exhaust. JPM Coachworks have done a superb job on the interior, outfitting the Veloster with Alcantara interior upgrades on the seats, dashboard, shift boot, headliner, doors and visors. There is also a custom stereo featuring Image Dynamics components courtesy of Adam Perry.
ARK have added their own front & rear wide fenders, front lip, side skirts, rear bumper, grille and ARK SFX rear wing. OneEighty have supplied new headlights, taillights and fog lights, and the Gunmetal wheels are Advan's RZ. The range of mechanical, interior and exterior modifications make the Veloster a must-see and the SEMA show next month.
