Hyundai Genesis Hurricane SC Supercharged

The 2011 Hyundai Genesis Hurricane SC Supercharged is announced to generate a real storm among its enthusiasts at the 2011 SEMA Show as it showcases extreme power together with unique design and technology. This special prototype Genesis Coupe was built and developed as a result of the strong and efficient collaboration between Hyundai America Technical Center Inc. and Magnuson Products, Rhys Millen Racing, Harman internationak and Torvec Inc. The engineers' work lasted for two years as they carefully worked on the aspects related to power, braking, traction, audio system and design. Thus, the supercharged Genesis Coupe's 3.8-liter V6 engine raises an impressive output of more than 450 HP. David Dutko, senior engineer, HATCI, stated that the Magnuson and HATCHI supercharger demonstrated that the car had been specially engineered to handle the high-performance potential of Genesis Coupe's V6 engine, generating a 35-45 percent increase in horsepower and torque that could be easily modified in otder to deliver the highest boost levels. The project features a large number of exciting aspects which will push the bounds of the car as well as of the whole vehicle segment. Its IsoTorque differential ensures an improved handling and traction capability, producing nearly a one second per lap improvement in the Genesis Coupe on the Hyundai road course. The exterior enhancements offer a front bumper, grille, hood, side skirts, diffuser and rear deck with spoiler, while the special interior is refined by the Katzkin custom premium leather together with suede seats accented with blue inserts. The show-goers will have the opportunity, at SEMA, to interact and experience with the vehicle' hard parts, for numerous parts of the Genesis Hurricane SC are going to be displayed.
