Hyundai Goes All Out with 1,000HP SEMA Genesis
Hyundai has paired with Blood Type Racing Inc., a Chicago-based builder specializing in extracting extreme, street-friendly performance from Korean vehicles, for a 1,000 horsepower Genesis Coupe. Unfortunately, it's just a one-off that's headed to the SEMA show next month. Believe it or not, he BTR Genesis Coupe uses the 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder as the engine’s foundation. The engine gets new sleeves, and was bored to give a larger displacement. Blood Type Racing Inc. is just one of 5 companies building a SEMA show 2014 vehicle for Hyundai this year.

With the addition of a high-boost Precision Turbo turbocharger, strengthened and fully balanced internal components, a custom intake, intercooler, full exhaust kit and nitrous injection, the BTR Genesis Coupe sends over 800 horsepower to the rear wheels (nearly 1,000 horsepower at the crank) through a six-speed manual transmission. All hail the almighty nitrous injection.
The drivetrain gets modified with, among other improvements, competition clutch upgraded clutch kit; competition clutch flywheel kit; enthuspec stainless steel clutch line; upgraded driveshaft; short throw shifter; shifter bushings; and upgraded transmission mount. The latter being probably most important because you don’t want that tranny dropping when that grand's worth of horsepower kicks in.

The BTR Genesis, if built, would be essentially a street-legal race car. But there's really no rationale reason for driving it on the street.
Along those lines, it gets these racing enhancements: Sabelt GT-200 Carbon / Fiberglass shell racing seats, sliders, racing harnesses and SW-390 racing steering wheel; planted seat brackets; Tanabe OLED Revel gauges; Cusco Roll Cage; and BTR custom rear seat delete. That rear seat would just be a vomit causer anyway.
By the way, which Hyundai SEMA car do you think is better looking? The BTR Genesis or the Bisimoto Sonata in the above photo? Comment below.
