SEMA show would feel so empty without a couple of very hot Hyundai Genesis Coupe! So here’s one, by Gogogear Racing and it’s a race car set for competing at U.S. Touring Car Championships in 2011, as well as Time Attack and endurance races. The car gets APR rear wing and an ARK Performance body kit, plus carbon fiber roof and custom graphics and racing livery.
The interior too is treated with Dupli Color’s Daytona Yellow paint job and includes items like Sparco race seats and seat belts, a full custom Metric Motorsports roll cage, a SPA Techniques fire suppression system and a two-way radio.
As for the mechanics, mainly thanks to the addition of an AEM air intake, Magnaflow exhaust system and ARK Performance headers, you get 330 horsepower and 280 lb. ft. of torque. Here’s more technical details on the engine and performance of the car:
“The Genesis Coupe is designed to convey that Hyundai can not only match the best from Asia, Europe and America, but beat them,” said Ali Arsham, owner, Gogogear Racing. “With its potent V6 engine and rear drive chassis, the Genesis Coupe has the ability to beat the current top guns that feature turbocharged four-cylinder engines and front wheel drive. It has ample power, terrific handling, and great reliability that become even more potent with the modifications we’ve planned.”
… A Moroso accumulator will ensure proper lubrication of the engine under the expected 1.4 Gs of cornering loads. Earl’s fittings, lines and oil cooler ensure a steady flow of oil to the 3.8 liter V6 under all conditions. The Gogogear Racing Genesis Coupe will also feature Ground Control suspension tuning with ARK Performance shocks, springs, coilovers and QA1 bearings. A light weight Spec racing clutch will increase reliability and help with quick and direct shifts of the stock close ratio six-speed manual transmission.
At each corner, StopTech brakes, Hawk racing pads, Konig lightweight wheels and BF Goodrich R1 street legal race tires with aluminum light weight Gorilla lugs and H&R spacers will ensure proper grip with the road. “The BF Goodrich R1 tires are a key ingredient towards achieving the 1.4 Gs of cornering force that we are aiming for,” said Arsham. Additionally, an Optima Battery was installed to ensure reliable starting and electrical power and was relocated to the rear with the help of a Taylor Vertex kit for improved weight balance.
