Hyundai is showing off the 1000hp Genesis Coupe at the upcoming SEMA show in Las Vegas. They are also bringing in a custom BGR Night Racer concept based on the Hyundai Veloster Turbo.
The racecar is designed specifically for time attack races at night racing circuits. It features a vivid yellow paint scheme dubbed Yellowcake and was created by BGR together with paint experts at PPG and Barry's Speed Shop.
Bisimoto Engineering – which also collaborated with Hyundai on the 1000hp Genesis – boosted the turbocharged 1.6-liter engine’s output to 250 horsepower. The car features a custom interior developed by Katzkin with Takata racing seats and harnesses.
