2010 SEMA Show: 2011 Hyundai Sonata 2.0T by RIDES Magazine

Article by Christian A., on November 3, 2010

Hyundai Motor America has partnered with RIDES magazine to promote the recently launched 2011 Hyundai Sonata Turbo, featuring one of the first turbos off the assembly line of its Alabama plant.

The modified Sonata 2.0T, which was inspired by the Mercedes-Benz CLS, features a variety of custom fabrication from RIDES' team of expert builders.

The tweaks to the exterior include a one-off, fully custom RIDES-designed bodykit consisting of new front and rear bumpers, side skirts, rear spoiler and roof spoiler. As a result, the factory body lines of the Sonata were enhanced.

The exterior also received a matte pearl paint job from BASF, 20-inch Rennen Modular M9 concave wheels powder coated matte black covered in Falken FK452 tires, smoked taillights and painted headlights, a matte black debadged front grille, Audi LED fog lights integrated into the new front bumper and 3M vinyl carbon wrap on the roof.

In addition, the RIDES team replaced the upholstery of the entire interior with a combined black leather and suede with red stitching. Carbon fiber trim can also be seen throughout the interior. Two JBL 12-inch subwoofers coupled with two JBL amplifiers are placed in the trunk.

Out back, there is a custom quad tip exhaust. At the front, an S-Max front mount intercooler has replaced the factory unit. With all these elements, the vehicle is able to boast its performance as well as its look.
