Rhys Millen Hyundai Genesis Coupe

Rhys Millen Racing and Hyundai Motor America introduced the all-new 2010 Hyundai Genesis Coupe. The model is capable of winning awards at the SEMA show with its visual impact and, in the same time, it can boast sufficient performance to put the drive in the circle of winners the next weekend. Everything is possible thanks to the talent of Rhys Millen. After stripping the car bare metal, the specialists started custom-fabricating new aftermarket parts and accessories for the Genesis Coupe which are certain to be among the first available in the aftermarket. The specialists have also decided to make the model lighter. The carbon fiber panes range from 50% to 80% lighter than the sheet metal they replaced. The hood, deck lid, roof, doors, fenders, front fascia and side skirts are all made out of carbon fiber. The hood is vented to dissipate heat and Aerocatch hood latches are used for safety. The rear wide body fenders are made out of fiberglass and blend seamlessly into the vehicle design with creative painting concept. The model receives power from a 2.0-liter turbocharged engine which comes as standard. The tuners have also designed a specially made intake manifold to ensure better engine breathing. The front fascia is blue and silver with carbon fiber accents. The hood is black and blue. The carbon fiber doors have silver accents and the silver is carried down to the side skirts and into the rear fender. All of the parts for the RMR Genesis Coupe are built with a modular design. A customer can put on all the parts at once or add them one at a time. The engine is capable of generating 220 horsepower and it features intercooled inline four-cylinder with premium fuel. We will have the opportunity to see it for the first time in the spring of 2009 as a 2010 model.
