You have seen these cars before in the official renderings they released, but now Hyundai is ready to show us the real things. These are the cars they have built in partnership with some of the best tuners in America for the 2016 SEMA show in Las Vegas, shown for the first time in the flesh.
The absolute highlight of Hyundai’s 2016 SEMA lineup is, without a doubt, the 1,040 horsepower, rear-drive “Santa-Fast” SUV made by Bisimoto. It boasts a heavily modded flex-fuel turbocharged, Hyundai-based 3.8L Lambda V6 powerplant and styled with Hyundai accessories and a special wrap. But if you are into off-road-prepped Santa Fes there is also something for you. Built by Rockstar Performance Garage, the jacked-up Rockstar Santa Fe features a a nitrous-powered, Hyundai-based 3.3L Lambda V6 engine driving all four wheels through massive 35 inch off-road tires.
As for the more sporty creations, the 2016 SEMA lineup for Hyundai include a race-ready Gurnade Veloster Concept which comes with a body kit consisting of integrated flares, front splitter, racing canards, three-piece lightweight forged wheels and a custom rear spoiler and 845 Motorsports-tuned engine featuring ARK exhaust system. ARK Performance has another tricked-out Hyundai up their sleeve in form of Road Racer Elantra Concept. This sporty sedan features integrated flares, bulging forged racing wheels and custom new front and rear fascia designs as well as ARK turbo kit using Xcargot XT26 turbocharger, downpipe and Grip exhaust, and ARK suspension and brakes.
