The flock of drift race cars scheduled to compete in the 2012 Formula Drift season just got a lot more interesting with the introduction of Rhys Millen’s prized steed.

Over the past few years, Millen has competed in Formula Drift with a Hyundai Genesis Coupe and now that the latter has a refreshed 2013 model, it was only right for Millen to get his own race-tuned, drift-spec Genesis Coupe.

“I’m pleased to have Hyundai’s ongoing support for the 2012 season,” Millen said. “This begins the fourth year of our racing relationship with Hyundai, and we want to continue to build upon our success in both developing and racing Hyundai’s race-proven products.”

So here it is, fellas. Unbeknownst to a lot of folks, the car carries a 2013 Genesis Coupe body shell with all the mechanical components being modified by Rhys Millen Racing. The result is a pretty bad-ass Korean drifting machine capable of producing a very impressive 600 horsepower.

How will Rhys Millen fare against the competition? With a car like this by his side, there’s no doubt RMR will be making some serious noise in the 2012 Formula Drift season.

UPDATE 05/31/2012: Hyundai USA has unveiled a new video featuring Rhys Millen as he talks about the 2012 Formula Drift Race season and the preparations that lead up to the 2012 Formula Drift season. Enjoy!

I never knew that Genesis Coupe is reliable, to be honest. Oh well, now I know that it’s one powerful Hyundai car.
