Hyundai’s already powerful Genesis sedan is a blank canvas for tuners to alter however they wish. And with SEMA just around the bend you can bet this car will be well represented at the Vegas event, in fact one company has already boosted it to the brink of insanity.

The folks at Toca Marketing Group, a Chicago-based customization firm have taken a stock Genesis and bolted a Garrett twin-turbo system to the car’s 5.0-liter Tau V8. The result of this forced-induction hijinks is 600 hp. The car also received a new cat-back exhaust system to help it breathe even better.

Beyond these prodigious powertrain enhancements this Genesis sedan also sports air suspension, wheel well-filling 21-inch rims dressed in Toyo tires and custom brakes. Up front it’s got eight-piston calipers; the rear wheels make do with merely six-pistons per side.

Of course to fit in at SEMA a vehicle has got to look appropriately garish and this hopped-up Hyundai is certainly dressed to the nines. It’s got matte and gloss black accents, widened body work, a custom interior with black-leather seats and a kickin’ Rockford Fosgate audio system, though there are more upgrades to this vehicle than we have space to list.

Look for our complete coverage of the annual SEMA show, which kicks off on November 4.
