Rhys Millen’s latest drift car packs 600hp and a whole lot of attitude.
The last time we saw Rhys Millen, he was playing a round of golf in a Hyundai Veloster. The drift champ has returned with his latest touched-up racer and 600hp means this is his most powerful Hyundai Genesis so far. The 2013 Hyundai Genesis Coupe comes with a standard 2.0-liter turbocharged 4-cylinder good for 274hp. Rhys Millen's model cranks that up by 326hp though the drift champ has chosen to remain mum on what he did to achieve the enormous gains.
The 2005 Formula Drift Champion did say, however, that "The refreshed 2013 Genesis Coupe with direct injection and twin-scroll turbocharger technology leverages the proven performance of Hyundai's rear-drive coupe, making it a perfect choice for anyone interested in competitive driving events." The 2012 Formula Drift season is underway now and has stops in Florida, New Jersey and Nevada to go, amongst others. Keep an eye out for Rhys Millen's 2013 Hyundai Genesis Coupe drift car as it competes all across America.
