Hyundai partners Bisimoto to create 1000hp Genesis Coupe for SEMA


Hyundai is partnering with California-based tuner Bisimoto Engineering to create a 1,000 horsepower (745 kW) Genesis Coupe for the 2013 SEMA show in Las Vegas, which is held from November 5 to 8.

Bisimoto Engineering is known for extracting huge, reliable power out of production-grade, everyday powerplants, and the rear-wheel-drive Bisimoto 2013 Hyundai Genesis Coupe is no exception, with a staggering 1,000 horsepower generated from the Hyundai 3.8 litre V6 engine. The concept is designed for the reliability of a street car but with the outrageous power of a no holds barred racer.

The Genesis Coupe 3.8 R-Spec engine is used as the core building block. Strapped with two Turbonetics turbochargers and forged internal components, Bisimoto is able to raise the power output to insane level, while retaining everyday usability.


“The key to producing reliable, high horsepower engines goes well beyond the design, engineering and fabrication of performance parts. The core powerplant must be strong enough to withstand advanced modifications. The Genesis Coupe 3.8-litre Lambda engine is a thoroughly robust powerplant, and Bisimoto Engineering is excited to develop it to its full potential for the rigors of competitive motorsport,” said Bisi Ezerioha, owner of Bisimoto Engineering.

Complementing the extensive work under the bonnet, Bisimoto created a custom Electric Blue paint, Denmatic design graphics package, ARK hood and Carbon Fibre deck lid. From the rear view, a Burns stainless exhaust and Bisimoto rear badge round out the visual impact.
