1000 HP Hyundai Genesis Coupe to Come to SEMA
Every year, automakers, tuners, modifiers and aftermarket part makers go to the SEMA (Specialty Equipment Market Association) show in Las Vegas to play. Anything and everything than can be done to a motor vehicle finds a home at SEMA. And, if they’re smart and recognize that tuners are a major part of their client base, a carmaker will bring a heavily modified, über fast version of one or more of their models to display and inspire.
And, Hyundai is smart. Every year, for the past several years, Hyundai has teamed with a tuning company to be a very power, very fast version of one of their cars. This year, it’s a Hyundai Genesis Coupe tuned by Bisimoto Engineering to produce an utterly massive 1,000 horse using the stock 3.8 liter Lambda engine from the 3.8 R-Spec Genesis.
A pair of Bisimoto/Turbonetics BTX6462 turbochargers is only the beginning. Bisimoto threw everything they had into the Hyundai, creating a car that every car person, tuner and non-tuner alike, would give their spleen for. The full list of modifications is below in case anyone wants to create their own Mega-Genesis.

COSTA MESA, Calif., Sept. 23, 2013 – Hyundai is again partnering with the engine wizards of Bisimoto Engineering to create a 1,000 horsepower Genesis Coupe for the 2013 SEMA show in Las Vegas. Bisimoto Engineering is known for extracting awesome, reliable power out of production-grade, everyday powerplants, and the Bisimoto 2013 Hyundai Genesis Coupe is no exception, with 1,000 horsepower generated from a turbocharged Hyundai-factory-based 3.8-liter V6 engine. The Bisimoto powertrain uses newly-designed internal parts, using the naturally-aspirated Genesis Coupe 3.8 R-Spec engine as its core building block. The Bisimoto concept is designed for the reliability of a street car but with the outrageous power of a no-holds-barred racer.
“The key to producing reliable, high-horsepower engines goes well beyond the design, engineering and fabrication of performance parts. The core powerplant must be strong enough to withstand advanced modifications. The Genesis Coupe 3.8-liter Lambda engine is a thoroughly robust powerplant, and Bisimoto Engineering is excited to develop it to its full potential for the rigors of competitive motorsport,” said Bisi Ezerioha, owner of Bisimoto Engineering.
Complementing the extensive work underhood, Bisimoto created a custom Electric Blue paint, Denmatic design graphics package, ARK hood and Carbon Fiber decklid. From the rear view, a Burns stainless exhaust and Bisimoto rear badge round out the visual impact.
