ARK Performance to unveil Legato Concept at 2013 SEMA

Article by Anita Panait, on October 9, 2013

ARK Performance will showcase another performance luxury coupe concept at the 2013 SEMA Show in Las Vegas scheduled on November 5-8. The Legato Concept is still powered by the production-based Hyundai 3.8-liter Lambda V6 engine that powers the Genesis Coupe on which it is derived. However, the engine is improved to 4.0-liters for 400 hp of output and 425 lb.-ft. of torque. The engine block features a Brian Crower (BC) 4.0 Stroker Kit with JE Pistons and BC 4340 crankshaft, connecting rods, and ARK oil cooler – all ensuring optimized output with superior durability.

Thanks to an ARK intake system and headers, engine breathing at high rpm has been improved, while a lightweight pulley kit cuts down unnecessary power losses from ancillary equipment. The concept also features an ARK dual-mass flywheel and carbon clutch kit that ensure efficient power transfer from the engine to the road.

Rideability is ensured by an ARK DT-P coil-over suspension system, lightweight Rays Engineering G25 wheels and Nitto NT05 tires, complemented by an ARK carbon brake pads for better stopping power. The interior of this luxury performance concept features Takata Drift Pro LE seats, AiM Sports Strada GT steering wheel, and digital gauge cluster as well as a Rockford Fosgate premium sound system.
