2010 Hyundai Genesis Coupe by ARK

The Paris Motor Show hasn’t even opened its doors yet and tuners are already trying to ignite our appetite for the offerings that will be available for the SEMA Auto Show at the end of October. The first taste we have received is ARK Performance’s tuning package for the Hyundai Genesis Coupe . The package doesn’t leave any stone unturned as it includes modifications for the engine, interior, exterior, brake, wheel, and suspension.

As an appetizer, ARK has added a new front bumper, new rear bumper, wide front and rear fenders, side skirts, a carbon hood and grille, and a new rear diffuser. The "salad" of the meal is the interior modifications including Bride Zeta 3 Hyper Red Seats, a new steering wheel, a 6-point chromoly roll cage, an Infinity Sound System, Apple iPad Integration Kit, Apple iPad Custom Bezel, and custom inserts.

As the main course, ARK is offering a 3.8 Supercharger Kit, a new intercooler, a new exhaust system, and a carbon fiber cooling plate. Each of these elements facilitate the insane boost of power to 450 HP (up from 306 HP).

Rounding off the meal is the car in its entirety. The Hyundai Genesis Coupe by ARK is simply sensational. Every aspect of the vehicle was covered and changed for the better. These teaser sketches definitely do their job by causing us to salivate over the idea of seeing it at the SEMA Auto Show .

I’m impressed with the angst of this coupe! Furthermore, I must say that it is already looking so great on its body paint, but I’m still wondering on its interior features and with its figure performance.

The Hyundai Genesis Coupe by ARK is simply sensational. It s very likeable car your passions really suits with it.

This must be Lexus Boy under a different name because he found out that Lexus is far inferior to other Luxury brands.

I think it’s very appropriate that SEMA is held in Las Vegas.
