No stranger to modifying cars, Bisimoto Engineering will head to the 2012 SEMA Show with a customized Hyundai Elantra GT.

“At Bisimoto Engineering, we strive to deliver the most performance wrapped up in the most unexpected packages,” said Bisimoto executive Hedi Kim.

Tuned beyond 600 hp, the engine went through a full rebuild and got a custom turbo kit from Bisimoto. Engine management comes from an AEM Series 2 EMS while additional fuel is handled through an AEM 320-lph fuel pump. Cooling the turbocharged powerplant is a Spearco intercooler along with an AEM water-methanol kit.

“When the Elantra GT was introduced by Hyundai, we knew it would be a perfect platform for us to showcase our tuning prowess. With our experience in forced induction and small-displacement engines, we focused on raw horsepower with this SEMA concept. We think the final product is a great example of just what can be achieved with turbocharging and engine tuning in the present day,” Kim said.

It also gets a JNF roll cage on the inside, and a Progress suspension with a set of coilovers and sway bar. On all four corners are 18×8.5-inch Buddy Club P1 Racing SF Challenge wheels.

Bisimoto used a body kit from Korean parts maker ARK while Gatorwrap came in with a custom laminted vehicle wrap. The team also collaborated with Extreme Dimensions for additional hood and aero upgrades while the exhaust sports a high-quality Burns Stainless muffler.

Inside, Bisimoto knows a thing or two about complete race cars. So it’s no surprise that new racing seats and harnesses have been installed along with a Racepack IQ3 dash.
