Hyundai loves teaming up with various tuners to create wild concept cars for SEMA. Today, it is previewing the last of this year’s concepts, which is a 500-horse Genesis Coupe built with the help of TJIN Edition.
The TJIN Edition Genesis Coupe makes use of the model’s standard 3.8-liter V-6 powerplant, but the tuner chose to strap a Vortech V3 blower to it and install a Bisimoto Engineering tune for some extra power. To help keep the incoming forced air nice and cool, TJIN added in a Vortech intercooler, while a blow-off valve from the same company keeps pressures in check. The finishing touches on the V-6 engine include a Bisimoto exhaust system and an Optima battery. These all add up to a 500-horsepower Hyundai that is sure to impress the masses at SEMA.
TJIN and Hyundai spent a little time away from the engine, and spent some much-needed time on the chassis. Under here, the two companies teamed up to install Rotiform 19-inch three-piece HUR wheels wrapped in Falken AAZONIS FK453 rubber and KW coilovers. Braking is equally important, and this Genesis has 14-inch cross-drilled rotors, performance pads, custom calipers, and steel brake lines all from Baer.
Like all SEMA concepts, there is no point in this Genesis going fast if it doesn’t look good doing so. Hyundai and TJIN set the exterior of this model apart with its Kylie Tjin Axalta Green paint, unique front lip, trunk lid and rear wing, LightWurkz headlights, and Safety 1st LED lighting. Inside, this Genesis gains a custom roll cage and custom Alea leather upholstery.
Of course, there is no chance of this TJIN-modified Genesis ever hitting showrooms, but this concept does show the vehicle’s potential with the right desire and buckets of cash.
