The 2013 Pikes Peak hill climb is approaching, and Hyundai released a pair of videos showing off exactly what the brand is doing to prepare for this years race. 

In 2012, Hyundai driver Rhys Millen set a record at Pikes Peak, and hoping to break his own time, Hyundai is working on dropping 1,000 lbs. from last year’s race car through the use of titanium and carbon fiber. Under the hood will be a modified version of the Genesis Coupe’s V6 engine, which the brand is aiming to get 900 hp out of.

The race to the summit takes place on June 30, 2013, and will include an all-new unlimited class rear-drive racecar from Hyundai along with the production-based Genesis Coupe model piloted by Millen which set last year’s 9:46.164 record time.
