Hyundai Genesis Coupe R-Spec Track Edition by ARK Performance At 2012 SEMA Show


ARK Performance will Unveil Hyundai Genesis Coupe R-Spec Track Edition At 2012 SEMA Show

Hyundai Motor America is again teaming up with ARK Performance to create an ultra-high-performance track edition sports car based on the Genesis Coupe R-Spec model.

The ARK super-tuner track edition will debut at the 2012 SEMA show as part of the Hyundai brand portfolio.


This special ARK model takes the new Genesis Coupe 3.8-litre, direct-injected engine to an impressive 295 kW @ 6800 rpm, with maximum torque of 460 Nm @ 5400 rpm. From the exterior, the ARK design theme takes the muscular character lines of the Genesis Coupe to the extreme, with race-like flared wheel-arches, an aggressive front splitter, and carbon-fibre bonnet with heat-extractor vents.

[Unfortunately there are no Turbochargers to take this extremely well built engine to the next level as with Rhys Millen who set a new world record at 2012 Pikes Peak Hill Climb in race-prepared Hyundai Genesis Turbo V6 Coupe with Garrett GTX3582 Turbocharger was fitted, yielding an amazing 522 kW (700 horsepower) and 949 Nm (700 lb. ft.) of torque from the Hyundai V6 powerplant.]

“The Genesis Coupe R-Spec is an ideal platform from which to build our SEMA track edition” said Ted Lee, owner of ARK performance, Inc. “The ARK Genesis Coupe R-Spec truly demonstrates the full track-tuning potential of the affordable Genesis Coupe R-Spec model. ARK continues to represent the ultimate in aftermarket performance tuning for Hyundai.”

While the exterior is impressive, the ARK Genesis Coupe goes far beyond exterior cosmetics, with significant under-bonnet performance modifications, a race-like interior environment, racing differential, tyres, brakes and suspension.
