California-based tuning company Bisimoto Engineering has prepared quite a package for the 2013 Hyundai Elantra GT that will be on display at the SEMA Show in Las Vegas. They have hooked it up with forged Arias pistons, Turbonetics turbocharger, AEM water-methanol injection and Bisimoto injectors and Bisimoto connecting rods to boost the tiny 1.8-liter four-cylinder engine. It is said to increase the output from the factory 148 HP to over 600 horsepower with these aftermarket parts.
Here is an all new tuning package released for the upcoming Hyundai Veloster sports car. It is said to be fitted with a 1.6-liter turbocharged engine producing 208 horsepower.

However it is still not yet confirmed that the same powerplant and performance numbers will be available in the North American version of the Hyundai Veloster.

There have been several releases so far for the SEMA Show starting this week, but this particular tuning project caught my eye and is based on the Hyundai Equus. This DUB Edition Hyundai looks like a luxury car that could be worth hundreds of thousands, however under all the customizations it is still an affordable Hyundai Equus. It sports a stunning exterior, interior, and even audio modifications from the well-known and exclusive DUB Magazine. The president and co-founder, Myles Kovacs said, “We know that SEMA show-goers look forward to seeing the cool new cars like Equus and the unique ways we customize them. With this car we tried to give tuners an idea of what modifications can be done within the luxury segment.”
Here’s an attempt to build some hype around the new 2011 Hyundai Sonata that comes with a 2.0-liter turbo engine stock from the factory. Hyundai teamed up with RIDES and 0-60 magazine in order to customize the 274 horsepower saloon for the upcoming SEMA car show. It takes place in Las Vegas this November, and the South Korean tuning firm had no problem admitting the cars tune-up was inspired by Porsche, Mercedes, and Ferrari models. At the SEMA Show, Hyundai says the exterior styling modifications will be “modest and tasteful”, while only this teaser picture has been released so far.

GReddy Performance Parts has paired up with Hyundai to begin manufacturing new products for the Hyundai Genesis Coupe that has been raising eyebrows.

Hyundai plans to market the car as a reliable street performance vehicle with a powerful driving experience.
