“ARK Performance knows the Hyundai brand almost as well as our own. We strive to leverage the superb product development of Hyundai engineers, building upon their expertise while offering something really special to enthusiasts. The ARK Road Racer Elantra Concept offers the specific model enhancements that our customers have come to expect from ARK,” said Kevin Bentley, developer of the ARK Elantra Concept.

This ARK Elantra Concept takes the practical yet sporty lines of the Elantra sedan, infusing it with an alternate persona through its integrated flares, bulging forged racing wheels, and custom new front and rear fascia designs for an aggressive yet fully-integrated appearance.
