ARK Performance Hyundai Genesis Coupe

At the 2009 SEMA Auto Show in Las Vegas last year, Hyundai took up a lot of the spot light with modified versions of the 2010 Genesis Coupe. Well, this year, the Korean automaker will once again make an attempt to steal the show with its rear-wheel-drive sports coupe.

Tuner ARK Performance has released sketches for their version of the Genesis Coupe, which they says is “designed for enthusiasts looking for quality performance products and inspiration for their own modifications. Besides upgrades made to the exterior, interior, brake, wheel and suspension modifications, ARK is offering a 450-hp engine mod to the Hyundai Genesis Coupe’s 3.8L V6.

“The performance parts from ARK will allow enthusiasts to further personalize our latest 3.8 R-Spec Genesis Coupe model,” said Michael Deitz, manager, Product Planning, Hyundai Motor America. “The modifications made by ARK are what SEMA is all about and why we offer the R-Spec model as the ultimate upgradeable, affordable, rear-wheel drive performance platform.”

All of the ARK Performance parts designed for the Genesis Coupe are production ready and will soon be available for enthusiasts everywhere.
