Hyundai’s SEMA display wouldn’t be complete without a heavily modified, high-horsepower Genesis Coupe. TJIN comes through on that front with a boosted, underground racing-inspired car that’s equally prepared to do battle with Mustangs and Camaros or modified front-wheel drive imports.

TJIN Edition RoadShow’s first Hyundai for SEMA has no problem being green, thanks to a supercharged V6 that produces 500-plus horsepower and an aggressively wild body kit. The drivetrain has been thoroughly upgraded, enabling the car to deliver on all of its considerable visual promises. The TJIN Edition Genesis Coupe made its official debut at the Hyundai press conference at SEMA. Like many of the concepts unveiled at the annual aftermarket show, the best part about this car is that many of the go-fast bits will be available from various suppliers for Genesis Coupe fans to mix and match into their own cars.

Exterior

The Genesis Coupe’s dramatic trapezoidal grille and sharply angled character lines have undergone a healthy dose of monochrome under TJIN’s direction. The entire car is painted Axalta green and is a TJIN creation. Rotiform three-piece 19-inch wheels provide a contrast and show off the lowered stance. The chrome trim in the grille and elsewhere has also been painted to match the car. The black and green look suits the TJIN Genesis Coupe well, and the front lip, trunklid and rear spoiler have all be modified. Custom LED lighting is also included.

Interior

The interior is dominated by a rollcage provided by Unique Fabrication. Custom Alea leather drapes the seats. The Genesis Coupe’s four-place interior is reminiscent of muscle cars, with laid-back seating and a large, sporty console.

Drivetrain

Under the hood, things get seriously exciting. The 3.8-liter V-6 has been boosted with a Vortech V3 supercharger sourced from Bisimoto Engineering. An intercooler and blow-off valve from Vortech are also included, and Bisimoto has tuned the engine control to handle the increased power, which Hyundai says is somewhere north of the 500 mark.

To ensure that the TJIN Genesis Coupe handles as well as it accelerates, KW coilover shocks lower the car, and Baer provides custom brake calipers and 14-inch cross-drilled rotors. The wheels are wrapped in Falken AZENIS tires.

Conclusion

Based on Hyundai’s preview, the TJIN Edition RoadShow-modified Genesis Coupe is an impressive upgrade for the big sports coupe. It doesn’t break any new ground in terms of styling or performance, but should serve as a great inspiration vehicle for Genesis Coupe fans looking to up the performance ante. It’s a hot addition to Hyundai’s collection of modified cars for SEMA.

At the heart of TJIN’s Genesis Coupe is Hyundai’s 3.8-liter “Lambda” V6 engine, which has been boosted via a Vortech supercharger kit built by the power gurus from Bisimoto Engineering. With the addition of a free-flowing exhaust system, Vortech front mount intercooler and blow-off valve, the vehicle now produces more than 500 horsepower. With the addition of Rotiform 19-in. 3-piece HUR wheels, custom Baer x CBA Extreme Plus brake calipers and Falklen FK345 tires, the vehicle’s stopping power is now on par with its go-fast performance.

The vehicle now sits lower on KW coilovers to give a more aggressive stance. Unique Fabrication supplied a custom front lip, rear spoiler and custom trunk lid, and the exterior was finished in a custom Kylie Tjin Axalta green paint job.

“The Tjin Edition Hyundai Genesis is the perfect mix of speed and style,” said Neil Tjin, president, TJIN Edition RoadShow. “The vehicle grabs your attention with its vibrant, Tjin green ‘Axalta’ paint job and custom Rotiform wheels, boasts impressive performance thanks to a Bisimoto Engineering supercharger system and Baer brake system, and the interior is finished in CT-inspired Alea leather.”
