The ARK Performance Hyundai Genesis R-Spec Coupe super tuner track edition

Hyundai first to tease SEMA 2012 with the ARK Performance Genesis Coupe

The start of the 2012 SEMA Show in Las Vegas is 36 days away and Hyundai has struck as being the first automaker to tease one of their special 1-off SEMA Show builds with a first look at the 2013 Hyundai Genesis 3.8 R-Spec modified by ARK Performance to pack almost 400 horsepower and an aggressive, unique look.

The 2013 Hyundai Genesis 3.8 Coupe R-Spec Super Tuner Track Edition (click here for the TorqueNews review of the Genesis 3.8 R-Spec) built by ARK Performance begins under the hood, where the standard direct injected 3.8L V6 has been heavily modified inside and out to produce 395 horsepower and 340lb-ft of torque. To reach this output, ARK pulled the 3.8L Lambda V6 out and tore it down – adding a Brian Crower 4.2L stroker kit including a BC 4340 crankshaft, BC 4340 connecting rods and JE Pistons. An ARK Performance intake system, ARK Performance ceramic coated headers, and an ARK Performance lightweight pulley kit are fitted to the outside of the new 4.2L V6 while an ARK performance oil cooler helps keep this high performance V6 running smoothly.

Helping putting all of that power to the ground in the ARK Performance super-tuner track edition of the 2013 Hyundai Genesis Coupe is a carbon plate clutch kit and a dual mass flywheel from ARK , a Cusco type RS 1.5/2-way limited-slip differential and lightweight Yokohama ADVAN RS2 wheels wrapped in Nitto NT05 tires. Working to insure that the ARK Performance Genesis Coupe handles as well as it accelerates, ARK has added a six piston big brake kit in the front and rear with ARK carbon brake pads and ARK stainless steel brake lines along with an ARK Performance DTP coil over system featuring Cusco suspension bars, arms and control rods.
