Bisimoto's Hyundai Elantra GT Concept Brings 600-Horsepower to SEMA

When we last reviewed the new 2013 Elantra GT, the biggest complaint we had was the lack of power under the hood, well this would definitely fix that! Hyundai has teamed up with Bisimoto Engineering, to develop the Bisimoto Elantra GT Concept for the 2012 SEMA show. The Bisimoto Elantra GT Concept gets upgrades like forged Arias pistons, Bisimoto con-rods and Turbonetics turbocharger, AEM water-methanol injection and Bisimoto high-pressure injectors, making the Bisimoto Elantra GT one of the highest specific-output Hyundais ever created, with 600+ horsepower from its 1.8-liter engine.

"At Bisimoto Engineering, we strive to deliver the most performance wrapped up in the most unexpected packages," said Hedi Kim, Vice President, Sales & Marketing, Bisimoto Engineering. "When the Elantra GT was introduced by Hyundai, we knew it would be a perfect platform for us to showcase our tuning prowess. With our experience in forced induction and small-displacement engines, we focused on raw horsepower with this SEMA concept. We think the final product is a great example of just what can be achieved with turbocharging and engine tuning in the present day."

The Elantra GT Concept also gets an ARK custom body kit, a JFN full roll cage, Bisimoto racing seats and harnesses, and custom interior.
