Hyundai's Custom Coupes Take Center Stage at SEMA

SEMA 2012

Hyundai has touched down at SEMA 2012 with a host of concepts. Here are three of them.

Hyundai has arrived at the Las Vegas Convention Center for the 2012 SEMA Show with an impressive lineup of tuned concepts, including a special edition RE:MIX Veloster, a mint green JP Edition Veloster concept, and a FuelCulture Genesis Coupe. The Korean carmaker has essentially used the Veloster RE:MIX to showcase a selection of available options wrapped in an eye- catching body, including an aggressive body kit, gunmetal-finish alloys and a premium sound system.

No more details on the car were provided, save for stating it will be hitting Hyundai dealerships before the winter priced at $19,900 for the manual and $21,150 for the DCT. The mint-green Veloster concept is a collaborative effort between Hyundai and tuner John Pangilinan, who said of the car: "The JP Edition Veloster concept takes the production car into ultra-exclusive tuner-car territory." The BASF Mint Green paint was applied by Auto Explosion, Jon Sibal designed the metal fender flare, and an ARK performance exhaust was added.

The JP edition also has a KW coilover suspension, Whiteline sway bars and anti-lift kit, and Brembo brakes. 19-inch Blacked-out Ray's Gram Lights Xtreme57 alloys round of the exterior treatment, while the interior benefits from Recaro Cross Sportster CS Seats, Takata harnesses, upholstery by Infinite Auto Design and a bespoke BP Auto Sound audio system. Finally with the FuelCulture Genesis Coupe concept, Hyundai showcases how easy it is to tune the car on a limited budget. Finished in Candy Apple Red, the Genesis Coupe's 2.0-liter turbo four has been augmented to 315 horsepower and 242 lb-ft of torque.

The increased output comes courtesy of an ARK DT-S exhaust, an ECU flash, a boost controller, SPEC Stage 2 Clutch and a host of parts by Chase Bays including a power steering kit, engine grounds, and electronic boost solenoid. The exterior gains a custom widebody rear kit, sideskirts and front bumper by Infinite Auto Design, and a VIS Racing K2 carbon-fiber trunk and rear lip. BC Racing coilovers and Whiteline front and rear sway bars were added to the suspension, the car sits on 19-inch Rotiform IND alloys, and the interior is kitted out in custom diamond stitched upholstery by Infine Auto Custom and a Rockford Fosgate sound system.
