Austech has released the first official photos of the racing-spec Hyundai Genesis Coupe GT racer.
Austech, the motorsport firm from Australia, has just released the first official photos of their new racecar for International GT racing. The 2012 Hyundai Genesis Coupe GT runs on the South Korean sedan's 5.0-liter V8 engine that will be tuned to either 450hp for Grand Am racing or 550hp for GT3 events. The racecar will be ready to go in multiple GT categories, such as the two listed above along with GTE racing.
Testing for the new racer is set to begin later this year and the Australian firm promises that it will be ready to hit the track in time for the 2013 season. Austech says that the affordable racer will be extra safe, as it carries a bit more weight due to FIA compliancy. They will also provide a support network in the U.S. and Europe for teams that decide to run their racecar. No word on pricing yet for the 2012 Hyundai Genesis Coupe GT racecar, but as it gets closer to completion we will bring you all the details as they come out.
