Press Release:


LAS VEGAS, Nev., October 30, 2007 ““ Hyundai Motor America showed a colorful glimpse of the future when it took the wraps off the Elantra Touring “Beach Cruiser” Concept at the 2007 Specialty Equipment Market Association (SEMA) show today. The custom concept is derived from the all-new five-door Elantra Touring, scheduled to arrive in the U.S. in 2008, taking advantage of the strong resurgence in small hatchbacks. The Elantra Touring Beach Cruiser Concept was customized by K-Daddyz Kustomz of Bakersfield, Calif., to capture this future model”s high-function and fun-to-drive character.

K-Daddyz Kustoms Elantra Touring “Beach Cruiser” Concept

K-Daddyz Kustomz is participating with Hyundai for the fifth consecutive year at SEMA with a world premier. Kyle “K-Daddy” Gann took a prototype Elantra Touring five-door compact and created the ultimate Southern California “Beach Cruiser.”

A two-tone “Amazing Grape” and “Tango Orange” paint scheme with Hyundai”s “Flying H” tribal graphics highlights the flowing curves of the concept and a green Polynesian Tiki idol graces the hood. True to the cruising culture, the vehicle features a front-to-rear panoramic sunroof. K-Daddyz” team also crafted a full line of interior and exterior billet accessories along with a custom race exhaust and ground effects kit. This approach is highlighted by a custom front grille with interlocking “Flying H” logos.

Performance enhancements include a prototype cold intake system, strut tower brace and painted engine cover and accessories. Twenty-inch Konig Rolf Blix 3 wheels matched with low-profile Dunlap Sport Maxx tires, complete the aggressive and sporty look for the “Beach Cruiser.”

The purple and orange paint scheme is carried through to the interior and is complemented by two-tone brown leather surfaces and matching interior accents. No cruising car would be complete without state-of-the-art audio and video capabilities, and K-Daddy delivers with four rear-seat video screens, eight speakers, five amplifiers and eight Infinity subwoofers.  In signature attention-to-detail fashion, K-Daddy created billet speaker grilles to match the exterior “Flying H” grilles, fabricated by Ryno Manufacturing. Gann also covered the five amplifiers in the trunk with an orange fiberglass “Flying H” hand painted with a purple outline.
