Video: Rhys Millen and His V8 RM500 Genesis Coupe Concept at SEMA

SEMA 2011

It's finally here: a V8-powered Hyundai Genesis Coupe. Now just bring it to production.

Ever since it first debuted, we've wanted Hyundai to drop their 5.0-liter Tau V8 into the Genesis Coupe. And now, our wishes are being fulfilled at this year's SEMA show. The South Korean automaker has just unveiled their RM500 Genesis Coupe that was created in partnership with Rhys Millen Racing. With its 450hp V8 under the hood, Hyundai also says that this concept has a "production-ready look."

Other additions to the car include a custom RMR stainless exhaust with GReddy rear section muffler and titanium tips. There are also tons of carbon add-on bits, including an RMR carbon front lip, carbon spoiler, carbon rear diffuser, carbon side skirts, carbon fog light ducts, and a carbon grill.

Along with 19-inch wheels, there are Brembo carbon ceramic rots with Brembo brake calipers. Inside features an RMR suede trim package. And for someone of Millen's stature speaking so highly of the Genesis Coupe, it's evidently clear that Hyundai is serious about advancing even further in the world of motorsports.
