GReddy Performance Parts has paired up with Hyundai to begin manufacturing new products for the Hyundai Genesis Coupe that has been raising eyebrows. Expect the new high performance parts to be launched at the 2009 SEMA Show on the GReddy X-Gen Street Genesis Coupe. The production tuning kit will include all the parts needed for the Hyundai Genesis 2.0T engine. The GReddy Total Tune-Up package will be a blend of performance, handling, and braking improvements. Hyundai plans to market the car as a reliable street performance vehicle with a powerful driving experience. At first they plan to increase the numbers to 350 hp and 320 ft lbs of torque, but after the SEMA Show further plans are to push nearly 500 horsepower.
With those numbers the Hyundai Genesis Coupe will be able to sprint from 0-60 mph in less than six seconds. Included in the car tuning kit is the GReddy Performance Products Turbo Upgrade Kit, front-mount intercooler, SE Spectrum Elite cat-back exhaust system, MX racing downpipe, and a Type-S coilover suspension that is fully adjustable. For the brakes they installed GReddy six-piston calipers in the front, and four-piston calipers in the rear. Exterior modifications show a new aero lip spoiler, carbon fiber hood, and aggressive rear spoiler.
For the wheels they went with top of the line Volk Racing G2 rims wrapped in Toyo high performance tires on the Hyundai. Inside the Genesis Coupe are Sparco racing seats, modified gauges, boost controller, turbo timer, and a remote switching system. “The Hyundai Genesis Coupe is a perfect car for the automotive enthusiast and the GReddy products are designed to maximize the performance capabilities of the vehicle. The Genesis Coupe is the ideal car for SEMA and we are building upon the overall concepts originally designed by Hyundai engineers and are looking forward to developing a must-see car at this year’s SEMA Show”, stated Kenji Sumino, the general manager of GReddy Performance Parts.
