Hyundai and Blood Type Racing (BTR) have announced plans to introduce a high-performance Genesis Coupe at the SEMA Motor Show.

Dressed in Candy Red, the car will feature a wide body kit that includes extended fenders. The model will also have a front lip spoiler, a rear diffuser, a rear wing and 19-inch alloy wheels with Toyo tires.

The sporty styling continues in the cabin as there's Sabelt racing seats, a sport steering wheel and Tanabe OLED Revel gauges. The rear seat has also been removed and replaced by a Cusco roll cage.

Power is provided by a turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine which has been equipped with forged connecting rods, forged pistons and GSC Stage 2 Cams. The engine also boasts a custom intake manifold, an optimized ECU and a Precision Turbo turbocharger. Other highlights include upgraded fuel injectors, a dual exhaust system and a custom intercooler. Thanks to these modifications, it develops more than 800 bhp (596 kW).

The six-speed manual has also been upgraded as it features a competition clutch, an upgraded flywheel and a short throw shifter - among other things.

Last but not least, the Genesis Coupe will be outfitted with a coilover suspension, strut tower braces and Wilwood brakes.
