Hyundai and Bisimoto Engineering have once again teamed for the SEMA show in Las Vegas. This time they decided to go for broke, and prepare a full-fat 1000-hp Hyundai Genesis Coupe. They’ve achieved this by turbocharging Hyundai’s brilliant 3.8 liter V6 Lambda engine.

He base for this project is a naturally-aspirated Genesis Coupe 3.8 R-Spec, and Bisimoto maintains that despite the colossal power, it is going to remain a perfectly usable street car. Visually, the car gets a custom Electric Blue paint, Denmatic design graphics package, ARK hood and Carbon Fiber decklid, a Burns stainless exhaust and Bisimoto rear badge. It’s a simple treatment, but one that works.

Interior mods are deeper, and include Buddy Club racing seats and harness, Racepack IQ3 dash, Odyssey dry cell battery, Bisimoto oil cap an reservoir socks, and G&J braided lines. So it’s not really as streetable as they say.

In terms of chassis and dynamics, the 1000-hp Hyundai Genesis Coupe comes with Bisimoto roll cage, Progress coilover suspension and anti-roll bars, 5.9 Axles, Incurve 20×9.5 and 20×11 aluminum wheels, and Toyo Tires R888 R-Compound tires .
