Rhys Millen is no stranger to daring challenges and his latest adventure promises to be a lot more important to him given the familiar ties it has with the Millen family.

Using a heavily-modified Hyundai Genesis Coupe - they named it the RMR PM580 - Millen will attempt to bring back thePike’s Peak Hill Climb record back to the family where his father, the legendary Rod Millen, held it for 13 years.

In this video, the younger Millen takes us for a little walking tour of the RMR PM580, the tuned-up Hyundai Genesis that Millen will take with him in his record-breaking attempt at breaking Pike’s Peak infamous Hill Climb record and etching the Millen family name back on the record books.

Check out the video and listen to the man himself introduce us to his new pride and joy.

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 full bio

Genesis and rhys millen is a good combination. Hyundai motors specially genesis became more popular because of rhys drifting skills.

Nice Video! It seems that this prototype looks really like a thin LM car and it seems pretty low for a rally-track, but should wait for the finish result.
