Blood Type Racing, a tuner from Chikago, has unleashed a 1,000-horsepower
Genesis Coupe at the 2014 SEMA show.
With a host of engine upgrades, suspension changes, and exterior and interior modifications, the Genesis Coupe by Blood Type Racing combines massive power with the true, adrenaline pumping experience of underground racing.
"Our focus on this vehicle was to build on the impressive performance abilities of the Genesis Coupe and help the growth of the aftermarket tuner community," said Sam Lee, product manager, Blood Type Racing Inc. "It's easy to add lots of power to an engine, but we engineered all other aspects of the vehicle - cornering and handling, stopping power, and visual appearance - to complement the massive horsepower we're now getting from the engine. We've engineered a true, total package Genesis Coupe."
Leveraging the Genesis Coupe's performance DNA, the Blood Type Racing's version uses Hyundai's 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder as the engine's foundation. The engine received new sleeves, and was bored to give a larger displacement. With the addition of a high-boost Precision Turbo turbocharger, strengthened and fully balanced internal components, a custom intake, intercooler, full exhaust kit and nitrous injection, the BTR Genesis Coupe sends over 800 horsepower to the rear wheels (nearly 1,000 horsepower at the crank) through a six-speed manual transmission.
BTR gave the vehicle an aggressive, underground racing appearance by adding a custom wide body kit designed for BTR by Kei Miura from Japan, with 40mm-wider front and 60mm-wider rear fenders, front bumper lip spoiler, rear diffuser and a GT wing for added down force.
In the cabin, the Hyundai Genesis by Blood Type Racing boasts Tanabe OLED Revel gauges, Sabelt racing seats and harnesses, a Sabelt steering wheel and Cusco roll cage.
