Hyundai has announced plans to introduce a 500 horsepower Genesis Coupe at the SEMA Motor Show.

Created by students from the Hennessey Performance Engineering Tuner School, the Genesis Coupe features a turbocharger, HKS boost controller, and an upgraded fuel management system. Thanks to these tweaks, the engine produces 500 horsepower and 465 lb-ft of torque. If Hyundai's predictions are correct, the car should accelerate from 0-60 mph in 3.9 seconds and run the quarter mile in 12.5 seconds.

If that isn't impressive enough, the car also has a matte black and carbon fiber-wrapped exterior, Savini wheels, Eibach springs, and a Brembo braking system.

According to John Hennessey, "The Genesis Coupe architecture is the ideal platform for tuners looking to make everyday modifications to their vehicles and our students at the Tuner School took full advantage. The visually stunning complete carbon fiber matte black wrap and high-end performance benchmarks create a monster SEMA car."
