SEMA 2009 Preview: GReddy X-Gen Street Hyundai Genesis Coupe Announced
The Genesis Coupe was a huge hit at last year’s SEMA Show when Hyundai served up Genesis Coupes reworked by HKS, Street Concepts and Rhys Millen Racing. This year, Hyundai decided to spread the love and has partnered up with GReddy Performance Parts to release a Genesis Coupe that is a project car as well as consumable goods. All of the parts presented at the show will be available for sale. The GReddy X-Gen Street Genesis Coupe features engine upgrades, interior modifications and a complete exterior aerodynamic and styling package.
The project began with a Hyundai Genesis Coupe 2.0T upgraded with a new turbo kit, bigger intercooler, Spectrum Elite cat-back exhaust system, MX racing downpipe, Type-S fully adjustable coil-over suspension, Greddy brakes (6-piston front, 4-piston rear) and plenty of other tuning mods. As it currently stands, this setup should be good for 350hp with 320 lb-ft of torque. 0-60 mph time has been estimated at under 6 seconds. That said, post SEMA Show, GReddy plans to turn the car into a real show-stopper with closer to 500hp.
Since all we have is one exterior image for now, the styling modifications are obviously the most glaring changes. GReddy has installed a lip spoiler, carbon-fiber hood and rear spoiler. A custom paint job and graphics along with Volk Racing G2 wheels wrapped in Toyo performance tires round out the package. Inside, the GReddy Genesis Coupe is outfitted with Sparco racing seats, a boost controller, a turbo timer, some modified gauges and a remote switching system. We definitely look forward to checking out this car in person at the 2009 SEMA Show.
