Dubbed the "Cosworth Genesis Racing Series," Cosworth’s program for the Korean sports car sees plenty of upgrades, including custom satin and gloss blue bodywork that matches well with the carbon fiber components in the front bumper with integrated carbon fiber brake ducts, side skirt lip, front splitter, integrated trunk spoiler, and rear diffuser. There’s also a new set of custom Cosworth Edition wheels with logo and hood graphics that finish off the exterior modifications.
Moving on to the interior, Cosworth gave the Genesis Coupe with a two-tone interior treatment, two-tone sports seats, a new special steering wheel, a new shift knob, a shift boot, and pedals to the overall set-up.
Finally, there’s the engine modification, which includes a retuned ECU, an improved thermal management system, an optimization of the induction and exhaust systems, a new suspension set-up, enhanced engine control parameters, and new brakes. All told, the Cosworth Genesis Racing Series hits an increased output of 389 horsepower and 325 lb/ft of torque.
“The rear-drive Genesis Coupe is simply a great platform from which to build our ultimate Cosworth Genesis Racing Series street model,” Nicole Armbrustmacher, director of marketing, Cosworth Americas said.
