Hyundai prepares 1,000 hp Genesis Coupe for SEMA image

The Koreans are heavily preparing for the 2013 SEMA show in Las Vegas, going again into partnership with powertrain developers Bisimoto Engineering for their new 1,000 horsepower Genesis Coupe.

Bisimoto Engineering is known for extracting awesome, reliable power out of production-grade, everyday powerplants, and the Bisimoto 2013 Hyundai Genesis Coupe is no exception, with 1,000 horsepower generated from a turbocharged Hyundai-factory-based 3.8-liter V6 engine.

“The key to producing reliable, high-horsepower engines goes well beyond the design, engineering and fabrication of performance parts. The core powerplant must be strong enough to withstand advanced modifications. The Genesis Coupe 3.8-liter Lambda engine is a thoroughly robust powerplant, and Bisimoto Engineering is excited to develop it to its full potential for the rigors of competitive motorsport,” said Bisi Ezerioha, owner of Bisimoto Engineering.

The coupe monster is described as a streetcar with the “outrageous power of a no-holds-barred racer,” and the one-off model will have an Electric Blue exterior with an ARK hood, a carbon fiber deck lid spoiler and 20-inch aluminum wheels with Toyo R888 R-Compound tires. Inside, the model will be outfitted with a roll cage, Buddy Club racing seats and a Racepack IQ3 digital dash.
