Tjin Edition Hyundai Genesis primed up for 2015 SEMA show

Article by Andrew Christian, on November 2, 2015

TJIN Edition RoadShow has worked on its first official Hyundai vehicle for the 2015 SEMA Show based on the Hyundai Genesis Coupe. At the core of the Tjin Edition Hyundai Genesis is the South Korean carmaker’s 3.8-liter Lambda V6 engine made more powerful by a Vortech supercharger kit from Bisimoto Engineering.

Tjin also gave this Lambda V6 engine with additional elements like Vortech front mount intercooler, a free-flowing exhaust system and blow-off valve. All of these upgrades leveled up the engine’s total output to over 500 hp.

Of course, this insane amount of running potential needs to be matched with superb stopping power, which is provided by custom Baer x CBA Extreme Plus brake calipers and Rotiform 19-inch three-piece HUR wheels wrapped in Falklen FK345 tires.

Finished in Kylie Tjin Axalta green paint, the Tjin Edition Hyundai Genesis now sits lower on KW coilovers, thereby giving the SEMA vehicle a more assertive stance. Moreover, the SEMA vehicle also features a custom front lip, custom trunk lid and rear spoiler from Unique Fabrication.

Its interior, meanwhile, is finished in CT-inspired Alea leather. Neil Tjin, president of TJIN Edition RoadShow, described the resulting vehicle as a “perfect mix of speed and style.”

According to Tjin, the Tjin Edition Hyundai Genesis will surely attract attention at the SEMA show thanks to the exterior, interior and performance upgrades it had received. The Tjin Edition Hyundai Genesis will be unveiled at Hyundai’s SEMA press conference on Nov. 3 at 11:30 a.m. PT.

TJIN EDITION ROUNDS OUT HYUNDAI’S SEMA LINEUP WITH EXTREME GENESIS COUPE

Rounding out Hyundai’s 2015 SEMA lineup, TJIN Edition RoadShow has revealed details on its convention-defying Genesis Coupe. For Neil Tjin’s first official Hyundai vehicle built for SEMA, the builder turned to underground racing for inspiration to create this mad, 500 horsepower racer. The vehicle will be revealed at Hyundai’s SEMA press conference on November 3 at 11:30 a.m. PT.

At the heart of TJIN’s Genesis Coupe is Hyundai’s 3.8-liter “Lambda” V6 engine, which has been boosted via a Vortech supercharger kit built by the power gurus from Bisimoto Engineering.

With the addition of a free-flowing exhaust system, Vortech front mount intercooler and blow-off valve, the vehicle now produces more than 500 horsepower. With the addition of Rotiform 19-in. 3-piece HUR wheels, custom Baer x CBA Extreme Plus brake calipers and Falklen FK345 tires, the vehicle’s stopping power is now on par with its go-fast performance.

The vehicle now sits lower on KW coilovers to give a more aggressive stance. Unique Fabrication supplied a custom front lip, rear spoiler and custom trunk lid, and the exterior was finished in a custom Kylie Tjin Axalta green paint job.

“The Tjin Edition Hyundai Genesis is the perfect mix of speed and style,” said Neil Tjin, president, TJIN Edition RoadShow. “The vehicle grabs your attention with its vibrant, Tjin green ‘Axalta’ paint job and custom Rotiform wheels, boasts impressive performance thanks to a Bisimoto Engineering supercharger system and Baer brake system, and the interior is finished in CT-inspired Alea leather.”
