Cosworth Amps up Hyundai Genesis for SEMA 2012
October 2nd, 2012
I’ve been a huge car guy all my life. My dad had a car lot growing up and I always went with him to buy new cars for his lot. I have a particular love for muscle cars, sports cars, and any car designed to be capable on the track and on the street. I’ve honestly never given the Hyundai Genesis Coupe a second look because it hasn’t been appealing to me.
Cosworth has seriously changed my mind and my opinion of the Genesis Coupe with a concept car that will be on display at the SEMA 2012 show. The car is called the Cosworth Genesis Racing Series and is painted in a sexy satin blue color. The car has a bunch of carbon fiber goodies on the outside including brake cooling ducts, a splitter, and lots more.
Inside, the car gets a wealth of Cosworth goodies including a fancy steering wheel, pedals, and racing seats. Cosworth also fits the car with a set of the brakes and special suspension for track work. The most interesting thing to me is that Cosworth tuned the V6 engine to produce 389 hp and 325 pound-foot of torque. The company promises that the car can spend the day lapping competition at the track and then drive you home in comfort. That’s my kind of car.
