Hyundai Genesis Coupe R-Spec Track edition to be displayed at SEMA

A really cool rendering of a car that will be on display at the 2012 SEMA show has turned up from Hyundai. The car started life as a basic Genesis Coupe and was thoroughly massaged by the performance fiends at ARK Performance to turn into a capable high-performance track car. Every aspect of the car was improved for performance.

The special Genesis Coupe has numerous engine modifications from ARK and other performance companies increasing the horsepower to 395 at 6800 RPMs. The engine produces 340 pound-foot of torque at 5400 RPMs. The body of the car also has modifications for aerodynamics and style. The car features flared fenders to fit over wide wheels and tires, aggressive front splitter, and a carbon fiber hood with heat extractors.

Inside the car, there's a special JPM Coachworks custom interior, Sparco Pro ADV racing seats, and an eight-point roll cage. To handle the extra power and survive track abuse the car has an upgraded transmission with an ARK carbon plate clutch kit and dual mass flywheel. The drive train also features a Cusco type RS 1.5/2-way limited slip differential.

With increased performance, the car also needed increase braking capability and was fitted with a six-piston big brake kit in the front and rear. The car uses ARK carbon brake pads and is fitted with ARK stainless steel brake lines. The suspension on the car uses an ARK performance DTP coil over system and has Cusco suspension bars, arms, and control rods. I wonder whether this car will perform on the track as good as it looks in the rendering.
