Hyundai Veloster Turbo to get 400-hp, renamed Velocity for SEMA Show

For the third concept it will be brining to this year’s Sema showroom floors, Hyundai has announced that Veloster will be joining the line up of Genesis coupes already on the roster.

Check out more news on the Hyundai Veloster.

Dubbed the “Velocity”, this one is the product of collaboration between the Hyundai America Technical Center’s Engineering and Design divisions.

“In creating Velocity, we were inspired to take the Veloster’s original concept strengths to their fullest expression,” explained Chris Chapman, head of Hyundai’s Irvine, California design center. “Velocity gave our design and engineering teams license to take Veloster far beyond everyday production car limitations.”

Mods for the Velocity include a turbocharger, intercooler, intake manifold, intake-charging design, performance pistons and rods, fuel system and engine management. British tuning house Cosworth also lent a hand in the model’s creation as with the Genesis, producing a total output of 400hp and 305 lb-ft of torque, up from the standard version’s 201hp and 195 lb-ft of torque.

To help handle the power, the Velocity has been given a Brembo brake kit with 4-psiton calipers, and two-piece rotors, a new suspension with Bilstein springs and monotube dampers. A set of Kumho Ecsta SPT 275/35R19 high performance summer tires also wrap a fresh set of 19-inch wheels.

Styling modifications include an oversized rear wing, lift-reducing rear diffuser, a pronounced wide body kit and interior upgrades like Katzkin custom suede leather interior and a roll bar.
