Blood Type Racing and Hyundai are going super-powered and street friendly for the 2014 SEMA show in Las Vegas this November. Blood Type Racing is bringing all the savviness of underground racing vehicles to the new 2014 Genesis Coupe.
The Coupe has the Hyundai 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine, but this time the engine’s been given a real work over. This engine has an output of 800 horsepower, pumped up with racing performance in mind. It’s also carrying over the regular coupe’s six-speed manual transmission. Though it’s holding onto its roots, the upped horsepower isn’t the only high-powered upgrade on this Genesis. Tires, suspension, and more have all been upgraded for the 2014 Genesis Coupe.
Sam Lee, product manager of Blood Type Racing, said, “It’s easy to add lots of power to an engine, but we engineered all other aspects of the vehicle — cornering and handling, stopping power, and visual appearance — to complement the massive horsepower we’re now getting from the engine.”
Southtowne Hyundai can’t wait to see the power behind this new version of the Genesis. The show dates for this year are November 4-7. For news on Hyundai’s attendance at this show and more, be sure to keep up with our weekly blogs!
