Next to the ARK Performance’s Genesis unveiled at the 2012 SEMA Show, Cosworth also unveiled a pretty cool tuning package based on the Genesis Coupe.

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.

UPDATE 10/31/2012: The Hyundai Genesis Coupe "Cosworth Genesis Racing Series" by Cosworth made its official debut at the 2012 SEMA Show. Check out the picture gallery to see a new set of high res images.

i think cosworths says it all. this will be a good car, if they put into mass production.

if you put it like that, you may be right. i guess the performance/price is good on this car.

am i the only one who thinks this car really is worth buying? i mean, it looks good, it has the power, what else do you want?

gary, you do realize the m3 is more expensive, don’t you? even as a base car, the bmw is almost twice as the hyundai is.

i don’t think this will take out a BMW M3. the m3 is far better.

the car looks great. and it may be a good option to consider when getting a new car.

The fact that it has rear wheel drive is a plus for making it a race car. The 389 HP also help. And with the better brakes and better suspension the car becomes evem more of a racer.
