Hyundai Genesis Hurricane - SEMA Auto Show Video

November 2011 author photo


The Genesis Hurricane earns its name thanks to a supercharger provided by Magnuson, which bumps the Genesis coupe's 3.8-liter V6 from its stock 306 horsepower to an astronomical 450. To keep the engine from heating itself up to dangerous levels under this new forced-breathing setup, a Magnuson liquid-to-air front-mounted intercooler has been put to task. To help keep the car pointed forward through corners under the extra power, Torvec took advantage of HATCI's testing facilities to dial in its IsoTorque differential, which Hyundai says is good for a one-second-per-lap improvement at its own proving grounds.

Rhys Millen Racing took care of the aesthetics, adding a new, more aggressive front bumper, grille, and hood. Leading the eye around to the back is a set of lower side skirts, and at the end of that journey you can find a whole new diffuser under a new trunklid and integrated spoiler. Enkei 19-inch wheels swallow up Brembo six-pot calipers, and that entire assembly is hung off of a set of Bilstein coilovers tuned on everyone's favorite automotive playground, the Nurburgring.

Inside, Katzkin leather and suede seat covers have been draped over the seats, and a Harman Lexicon sound system provides the tunes.
