Hyundai announced today that it will show a Rhys Millen Racing version of the Equus at the 2010 SEMA Auto Show next month. The RMR Signature Edition Equus will include exterior, interior and performance upgrades that will enhance the already luxurious sedan.
“This is the third consecutive year we’ve partnered with Hyundai to bring a must-see car to the SEMA Show,” said Rhys Millen, owner, Rhys Millen Racing. “The intelligent luxury platform of the new rear-wheel drive Equus is a perfect vehicle for tuners who have graduated from other segments and want to work with the best the automotive industry has to offer.”
The RMR Signature Edition Hyundai Equus will features carbon mirrors, and front chin and rear deck spoilers, two-tone carbon fiber and Red Bull Racing blue satin clear paint by BASF and HRE 21-inch P40 wheels. The interior will feature RMR Signature Edition embroidered headrests and floor mats, and ostrich hide leather seats with suede accents.
Those looking to get power out of the 4.6L Tau V8 can opt for a power upgrade that increases horsepower by 30 for a total of 415 horses. Sounds pretty sweet but we’re not sure how we feel about the two tone carbon fiber exterior.
Refresher: The 2011 Equus will hit dealerships in two configuration including Equus Signature and Equus Ultimate. Both will be powered by a 4.6L Tau V8 making 385-hp / 333 lb-ft of torque (378-hp / 324 lb-ft using regular fuel) mated to a ZF 6-speed automatic. Prices will start around $55,000.
