High-powered Hyundai for SEMA
Fox Marketing provides a considerable power bump to this Hyundai Veloster.
Hyundai's tally of SEMA-bound cars continues to grow with the addition of the Fox Marketing Veloster Turbo. Modifications to the hatch are fairly extensive, boosting the engine's output to 370 hp, a 169-hp gain over a stock 2013 Hyundai Veloster Turbo. When we tested a stock 2013 Hyundai Veloster Turbo, it completed the 0-60 mph sprint in 6.9 seconds.
Fox Marketing installed an 845 Motorsports Turbo kit that includes a stainless steel manifold and a BorgWarner EFR 6258 turbo. In addition to new charge pipes, front-mounted intercooler, and a Vband downpipe, the tuner bolted on a 3-inch aluminum cold air intake and custom oil and coolant lines. Other mods to the 1.6-liter gasoline direct injection engine include a custom ECU sourced from SeoulfulRacing, and a cat-back exhaust from AEM.
The Fox Marketing Veloster Turbo gets its lowered stance and improved handling from a 35-way adjustable coil-over set from ARK Performance, UNIQ Performance strut tower brace, and a number of chassis components from ImportShark including a mid-brace, chassis brake, lower tie bar, cross-bracing, and sway bars. The tuner also upgraded the front brakes with WP Pro EX6 6-piston calipers, 13.6-inch wavy-cut rotors, and stainless steel brake lines.
The flashy exterior paint comes courtesy of BASF and its hand-mixed, metallic color dubbed R-M Oynx HD Waterborne SkyAqua Pearl. The black shade is called R-M Onyx HD Black D403. Other exterior mods include custom fog lights, ImportShark front lip spoiler, custom rear fascia mesh, and a Takata black tow strap. Inside, the Fox Marketing Veloster Turbo features Takata Street Pro LE seats and Takata Drift III 4-point harnesses.
This will be the second modified Veloster in Hyundai's booth, joined by EGR's 250-hp "Night Racer" Hyundai Veloster Turbo. Other cars include a Hyundai Genesis Coupe tuned by John Pangilinan, an ARK Legato Genesis Coupe, and a Bisimoto Engineering Genesis Coupe that is tuned to make 1000 hp.
