Hyundai has previewed its final project for this year’s SEMA Show, a custom Genesis Coupe by Tjin Edition.

This is Tjin Edition’s first Hyundai vehicle built for SEMA, with the Genesis Coupe getting inspired by underground racing for a 500-horsepower sports car. Under the hood is the Korean automaker’s 3.8-liter V6 engine that has received a Vortech supercharger kit courtesy of Bisimoto Engineering. Along with a Bisimoto exhaust system, Vortech front mount intercooler and blow-off valve, the Genesis Coupe has more than enough power to spin the 19-inch Rotiform three-piece HUR wheels paired to Falken FK453 tires. Helping stop the 500-hp monster is a custom set of Baer Extreme Plus brake calipers, while KW coilovers gives it an aggressive stance.

The Tjin Edition Hyundai Genesis Coupe, along with all the other Hyundai 2015 SEMA Show projects will debut November 3 and will be in Las Vegas reporting live from the show.

“The Tjin Edition Hyundai Genesis is the perfect mix of speed and style,” said Neil Tjin, president, TJIN Edition RoadShow. “The vehicle grabs your attention with its vibrant, Tjin green ‘Axalta’ paint job and custom Rotiform wheels, boasts impressive performance thanks to a Bisimoto Engineering supercharger system and Baer brake system, and the interior is finished in CT-inspired Alea leather.”
