About a decade ago, if you mentioned a performance Hyundai model, you might get a slight snicker from a crowd of people. In the last five years, Hyundai has upped its game to include a nice array of both luxury and performance models. The pinnacle of Hyundai’s performance line is the Genesis 3.8 R-Spec.
This machine boasts a 3.8-liter V-6 engine that pumps out a stout 348 horsepower and 295 pound-feet of torque. This is enough to get this big sports coupe to 60 mph in just 5.3 seconds, putting it a class that no Hyundai has ever been in before – well, no production Hyundai at least.
With SEMA quickly approaching and Hyundai looking to show off the potential of its Genesis R-Spec, it has teamed up with the folks at ARK Performance to create a track-ready monster. This ARK Genesis Coupe R-Spec will make the trip along with Hyundai’s factory team at SEMA and hope to impress enough buyers to snag up their own Genesis R-Spec and do the same.
