To complete their SEMA Show lineup, Hyundai has reached out to the team at TJIN Edition RoadShow to create a very special 500 horsepower version of the Genesis Coupe. The TJIN Edition Roadshow team is no stranger to SEMA having built special vehicle concepts for the show the past several years. The Tjin Edition Genesis Coupe will be their first for Hyundai – joining four other concept vehicles from Hyundai that will be revealed at the Hyundai SEMA press conference on November 3 in Las Vegas.
The Neil Tjin team turned to underground racing for their inspiration in creating this special edition Genesis, says Hyundai, 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.
Adding Rotiform 19-in. 3-piece HUR wheels, custom Baer x CBA Extreme Plus brake calipers and Falklen FK345 tires, the Tjin Edition Hyundai Genesis has plenty of braking power to match the seriously fast powertrain. Handling prowess is enhanced through KW coilovers to give a lower and 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.”
