Rhys Millen Racing’s tuned-up Hyundai Equus luxury sedan is one of those cars that we’re excitedly waiting for when it makes its SEMA debut in a couple of weeks.

Sure, there are probably going to be more bombastic looking cars out there in Las Vegas when SEMA opens, but we’re curious as heck as to know how the boys from Rhys Millen Racing took up the challenge of spicing up the Equus.

We already know a few details about the car, including all those carbon fiber accessories included in the luxury car and the inclusion of a set of HRE 21-inch P40 wheels. RMR also gave the Equus a performance upgrade with the addition of air intake and a stainless exhaust that spike up the car’s pony power by 30 horses - from the standard 385 horsepower to 415 horsepower.

Ahead of it’s unveiling in SEMA, the car was spotted being worked on just outside a local interior shop. Check out the photos taken of the RMR-tune Equus, including one where the interior still appears to be a work in progress.

Kirby’s first exposure into the world of automobiles happened when he caught Knight Rider on television as a five-year old boy. David Hasselhoff didn’t leave much of an impression on him (that happened later on in Baywatch), but KITT certainly did. To this day, Kirby remains convinced that he will one day own a car with the same ‘spirit’ as the original KITT (not the 2008 monstrosity). He doesn't know when that will be, but until then, he’s committed to expressing his love for KITT, and all cars for that matter, here at TopSpeed.  Read More

Its a good thing to know that this car uses a carbon fiber materials for its interior. For sure the Hyundai Equus is one of the most awaited cars during the SEMA.

Is it just the resolution of the picture or this car really looks like that one? I don’t like how they made the paint job! Plus the the grille is too big that it actually covered the distinctive aggressiveness of the headlights.

.if they didn’t paint the top part of the curve running down the side it’d look pretty nice!
