Hyundai partnered with Gogogear Racing to create a custom, racing version of the Genesis Coupe that made its debut today at the Specialty Equipment Market Association (SEMA) Show.
In its efforts to prove that this is a tuning- and racing-friendly vehicle, Hyundai has fitted its 3.8 liter V6 powerplant with an AEM air intake, a Magnaflow exhaust system, ARK Performance headers and new engine management software.
Gogogear Racing installed a Moroso accumulator that allows for the unit to be properly lubricated under the expected 1.4 Gs of cornering loads.
This vehicle, which uses a racing clutch that’s attached to the stock six-speed manual gearbox, has an output of 330 hp and a maximum torque of 280 lb-ft (379 Nm).
Cornering is expected to be easy for this vehicle since it has been fitted with a Ground Control Suspension that includes ARK Performance shocks, springs, coilovers and QA1 bearings.
The coupe features StopTech brakes and Hawk racing pads as well as Konig lightweight rims and BF Goodrich R1 street legal race tires. For improved aerodynamics, the Genesis Coupe has received an APR rear wing and an ARK Performance body kit. Instead of the factory steel roof, the vehicle now has a carbonfiber one.
The interior of the Genesis Coupe will not only be gutted but will have the Sparco race seats and the seal belts. Other features include the custom Metric Motorsports roll cage and the SPA Techniques fire suppression system.
Then there is the two-way radio ensuring that the car is prepared for its planned racing debut. Providing important information to the driver is the RacePak IQ3 data logger dash. It also supplies the driver with the lap times.
A second system, called the Linear Logic Scan Gauge II, gives the driver information on secondary engine parameters. Going back to the interior, it will utilize the Dupli Color's Daytona Yellow in order to match with its exterior. Any work done by the Gogogear Racing members will be performed with the use of Ironclad Performance wear and gloves.
