Lately it seems like Hyundai may seem to be focusing all of its attention on the new Veloster, but don’t forget that Hyundai also has the more powerful Genesis coupe. To show off the performance potential of the Genesis coupe, Hyundai has teamed up with Magnuson Products, Rhys Millen Racing, Harman International and Torvec Inc. to develop and build a special edition prototype Genesis Coupe, the Genesis Hurricane SC.
HATCI, Hyundai’s design, technology and engineering branch, is going to show off the Genesis Hurricane SC at the SEMA show next month. The special edition Genesis coupe is powered by a supercharged 3.8L V6 that packs more than 450 horsepower. Torvec has also added its IsoTorque differential for improved handling and traction capability. Thanks to the differential the Genesis coupe delivers nearly a one second per lap improvement in the Genesis Coupe on the Hyundai road course.
The exterior of the Genesis Hurricane SC gets modified thanks to Rhys Millen Racing, which has provided exterior enhancements including a front bumper, grille, hood, side skirts, diffuser and rear deck with spoiler.
The interior of the Genesis Hurricane SC gets a Harman International high level Lexicon audio system that was tuned in house by HATCI engineers and Katzkin custom premium leather and suede seats accented with blue inserts.
