The Genesis Hurricane SC made its debut today at the SEMA Show next to a very impressive Hyundai line-up. The new model has been developed in cooperation with Magnuson Products, Rhys Millen Racing, Harman International and Torvec Inc. and is just another proof of how cool the Genesis Coupe can be.

Magnuson was responsible for the engine upgrades. They have equipped the 3.8 liter V-6 engine with a liquid to air intercooler for a total output of more than 450 HP. Torvec Inc. has been developing its IsoTorque differential with improved handling and traction capability.

Rhys Millen Racing (RMR) was responsible for the exterior. They added a new front bumper, grille, hood, side skirts, diffuser, and rear deck with spoiler. The car has also received high performance 19-inch wheel and tire assemblies, a RMR free flowing exhaust system, and an air intake.

The interior gets a Harman International high level Lexicon audio system, custom premium leather, and suede seats accented with blue inserts.

I wonder if what are the other great and impressive features that this Genesis Hurricane can offer? Hmm, I hope that it could include some latest technology! smiley Anyway, the engine output of this one is already quite impressive.

I think it is much better if Hyundai used a V8 or V10 engine on this race car. Anyway, its engine is kind of impressive already, but I think it didn’t justify the name itself.

The modification of this Genesis is truly very striking, and I love the new features that they add on its exterior, but I have to agree that its engine is not fitted on its name itself.

As for the looks of this Genesis, I can say that I’m already satisfied and impressed with that, but when it comes into its interior, I’m kind of disappointed, if only they add some infotainment on it.

The new facelift of this Genesis is definitely a good one, but just like them. I’m still disappointed on the engine of it. It truly didn’t fit on the name of it. I think they should really focus first on the engine of their cars.

V6 engine? I think they should upgrade this one because I don’t think that it will be fitted on its name ’hurricane’ but its 450 horsepower, is quite cool about it even the look is already striking.

I can say that its International high level Lexicon audio system is really stunning on this Genesis Hurricane, but I was hoping also that the engine that it will have is like a hurricane.

A new Genesis? Well, it was still very striking on its looks, and I just noticed that its current bumper, grille and other features are quite a good move, but I don’t think that the engine that it had, can give a performance just like a hurricane.

A remodeled Genesis Coupe has made its way to a better design. I hope the engine upgrades suit the name of the car. I love the sleek exterior design.

Genesis Hurricane? Well, nice name but I hope that the engine that it had is really like a hurricane so that the name itself was really fitted on it. Anyway, I love the boyish and muscular body paint that they used on it.
