Hyundai began its SEMA push on Monday with a 1,000-hp Genesis coupe from Bisimoto Engineering. We're not sure how the company managed to squeeze that many ponies out of the Genesis' 3.8-liter V6. We're guessing alchemy has something to do with it.


Bisimoto also created the car's electric blue paint, Denmatic did the design graphics, the hood is from ARK and the decklid is made from carbon-fiber. A Burns stainless-steel exhaust sits out back.


Under the hood, Bisimoto added internal components, including steel connecting rods, special intake gasket and injectors, and upgraded camshafts. To make the added power, twin Bisimoto/Turbonetics turbochargers were installed with Godzilla blow-off valves and dual wastegates.


Additionally, Bisimoto installed Arias forged pistons, Golden Eagle sleeves, a Supertech valvetrain, a Magnafuel fuel pump, an ARP head, smart ignition coils and a handful of other upgrades.


The Bisimoto coupe is held to the track with a Progress coilover suspension, Drive Shaft Shop 5.9 axles and driveshaft, 20-inch wheels and Toyo R888 tires.

Last year Hyundai brought seven concepts to the show, including the Cosworth Racing Series Concept, a Bisimoto Elantra and the HATCI Velocity, which was based on the Veloster.


The SEMA show is one of the world's premier automotive specialty trade shows -- think wings, wheels and literally everything in between. The show begins on Nov. 5 in Las Vegas at the Convention Center. We'll have boots on the ground, but until then check out our coverage of last year's show here.

They added an intake GASKET, really?  Wow, that's neat.  Who writes this stuff?  Not a car enthusiast that's for sure.

Why do little kids always write these articles? You think "alchemy has something to do with it"?


How about some real information for a change?


p.s. all cars have intake manifold gaskets

-but will it last? I hope it makes it to 50K miles, but I suspect it will be wrapped around a light pole before then......

Cant polish a turd..... 1000hp? Really? I dont need to sit in traffic that fast!!!

Yeah, just like when Dodge rated the Dakotas at 280hp, but dyno after dyno starting popping up with the 175hp number.

Talk is cheap. I remember hearing many claims which grossly exaggerate horsepower over the years. It could be proven with an independent testing facility and a reliable dyno to provide actual HP at the rear wheels.

Hyundai makes very good cars. Too bad the nationalistic ****hoot off their mouth before engaging their little pea brains.
Sep 24, 2013 9:00AM
Still a Hyundai no matter how you dress it up
Sep 24, 2013 9:02AM
A grand? Maybe but like the man said talk is cheap, lets see it on the road and how well it holds up under real time driving,,, Might be a stud, or it might be a dud, Im betting on the latter
