Hyundai announced today that it will team up with Rhys Millen Racing (RMR) to create the “Art of Speed” Genesis Coupe show car that will make its debut at the 2008 SEMA Auto Show on November 4th. The RMR will be one of the many 2010 Genesis Coupe models to be displayed at the Hyundai stand at the show.
The RMR Hyundai Genesis Coupe will be powered by a 2.0L DOHC inline 4-cylinder engine with a RMR turbo kit. Official performance figures will be announced at the launch. The show car is also equipped with a heavy-duty HKS sequential transmission and K&W coil over suspension.
The RMR Genesis Coupe will also be outfitted with a RMR widebody kit, functional hood scoop and a crab fiber wing. It will ride on Enkei racing wheels and Bridgestone Protenza RE-01 tires. Brembo brake calipers will allow more than enough stopping power for this track-based car. Inside RMR will use Spacro steering wheels and seats along with a 8-point roll cage and a carbon fiber dash.
Tuners were recently invited out to Hyundai North American headquarters in Fountain Valley, California to check out the capabilities of the 2010 Hyundai Genesis Coupe. The Genesis Coupe will star in the upcoming Fast and Furious movie as well.
