1000-Horsepower Hyundai Genesis Coupe Headed To SEMA

Hyundai is teaming up with Bisimoto Engineering to wring 1000 horsepower out of a Lambda 3.8-liter V-6 in a Genesis Coupe.
To do this, Bisimoto started by adding two turbochargers developed in conjunction with Turbonetics. Bisimoto also added its own steel connecting rods, intake gasket, injectors and camshafts.
Many other components from various sources were needed to make this engine create this power, and to be strong enough to handle it. These include Arias forged pistons, Supertech valvetrain, Magnafuel fuel pump, Spearco intercooler, Griffin radiator, and a lot more.
The engine wasn’t the only thing modified, though. This Genny Coupe gets a Bisimoto roll cage, plus a new coilover suspension, axles and drive shaft, wheels, and tires sourced from other companies. Other modifications include a stainless steel exhaust, carbon fiber hood, racing seats with harness, a new dash, braided lines, and a dry cell battery.
The Bisimoto Hyundai Genesis Coupe’s official debut is at the SEMA show in Las Vegas, beginning November 5.

Bisimoto Engineering Leverages the Proven Durability of Stock Hyundai Powerplant to Create Monster-powered Genesis Coupe Variant
COSTA MESA, Calif., Sept. 23, 2013 – Hyundai is again partnering with the engine wizards of Bisimoto Engineering to create a 1,000 horsepower Genesis Coupe for the 2013 SEMA show in Las Vegas. Bisimoto Engineering is known for extracting awesome, reliable power out of production-grade, everyday powerplants, and the Bisimoto 2013 Hyundai Genesis Coupe is no exception, with 1,000 horsepower generated from a turbocharged Hyundai-factory-based 3.8-liter V6 engine. The Bisimoto powertrain uses newly-designed internal parts, using the naturally-aspirated Genesis Coupe 3.8 R-Spec engine as its core building block. The Bisimoto concept is designed for the reliability of a street car but with the outrageous power of a no-holds-barred racer.
“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-liter 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 underhood, Bisimoto created a custom Electric Blue paint, Denmatic design graphics package, ARK hood and Carbon Fiber decklid. From the rear view, a Burns stainless exhaust and Bisimoto rear badge round out the visual impact.
