Demonstrating the full track-tuning potential of the affordable Genesis Coupe R-Spec model

Hyundai is once again working with ARK Performance to create an ultra-high-performance track edition race car based on the Genesis Coupe R-Spec model. The ARK super-tuner track edition will debut with the Hyundai brand at the 2012 SEMA show.

This special ARK model takes the new Genesis Coupe 3.8-liter, direct-injected engine to an impressive 395 horsepower at 6800 rpm, with axle-flexing torque of 340 lb.-ft. at 5400 rpm. From the exterior, the ARK design theme takes the muscular character lines of the Genesis Coupe to the extreme, with race-like flared over-fenders, an aggressive front splitter, and carbon-fiber hood with heat-extractor vents.

“The Genesis Coupe R-Spec is an ideal platform from which to build our SEMA track edition” said Ted Lee, owner of ARK performance, Inc. “The ARK Genesis Coupe R-Spec truly demonstrates the full track-tuning potential of the affordable Genesis Coupe R-Spec model.”
