Tuner ARK Performance will be partnering with Hyundai in developing a track-focused Genesis Coupe R-Spec that will be introduced this year at SEMA in Las Vegas. The released images indicate that this car will be very different from the production version. Nevertheless, it’s difficult to examine several of the exterior changes such as its carbon fiber hood, rear diffuser and flared rear fenders.
Aside from the clearly revised exterior, ARK was also able to give this car’s naturally aspirated 3.8-liter V6 to 395 hp and 340 lb-ft of torque a tuning. ARK was able to boost its output by 58-hp and 45 lb-ft over the production R-Spec 3.8 model. However, there are more modifications to the car. It’s possible that it will receive a better intake, pistons and an oil cooler to handle the additional power and lengthened high-speed driving.
Furthermore, the engine benefits from a Brian Crower 4.2 stroker kit and ceramic coated headers. Special treatment is given to the transmission. It gets a dual-mass flywheel and a carbon clutch plate kit.
Because of a Cusco limited-slip differential, the power will be kept ideally distributed between the rear wheels and a brake kit. It comes equipped with six-piston brake calipers as well. Like other track cars, this one gets a roll cage. Its interior is totally modified with the help of JPM Coachworks, which include the use of Sparco Pro ADV seats and a Sparco steering wheel.
