A Hyundai race car?! With 750 horsepower?! A few years ago this sentences were some funny jokes, but now that Hyundai is turning into the biggest car maker in the world gaining one success after another, it’s not funny at all. Actually this Genesis PM850 developed for Rhys Millen Racing is quite serious. It’s a mean machine!
Designed to tackle the 2010 Pikes Peak Hill Climb race, the car is powered by a heavily modified 4.1-liter turbocharged V6 engine which can produce up to 750 hp, although it needs only 675 hp to qualify for the race.
It also feature a carbon fiber aerodynamically designed 1,850 pounds body which has a weird design! They say it’s a a modern Le Mans-style car. It also will use an active center differential which will allow a 10-100 percent torque split to the front wheels, well it’s going to climb hills!
Other features include include a chromoly frame and roll cage, a Weismann semi-automatic AWD transmission, Tilton racing clutch, carbon-fiber Brembo brakes and pads and Toyo Proxy tires.
