New Reveal At SEMA : Rhys Millen's RMR Hyundai Genesis Coupe

Rhys Millen Racing (RMR) took delivery of one turbocharged 2.0-liter Hyundai Genesis Coupe on August 8th and after 12 weeks of stripping, fabricating and building, it's ready. The project began with RMR removing all the body panels and creating carbon fiber pieces to replace the front bumper, fenders, doors, side skirts and other panels.
As for tuning the engine, RMR went for a racing turbocharger to give extra boost for the small engine. They also gave it wastegate and blow-off valves, along with a custom intake manifold, while suspension duties are handled by two-way adjustable KW coilovers. New sway bars and adjustable lower control arms were also fabricated, helping to keep the 18x9.5 (front) and 18x10.5-inch (rear) SSR Type-F wheels and Bridgestone Potenza planted on the road.
Interior, it has a roll cage, custom gauges and fire suppression system ready for racing. So as a result, this package will get Hyundai for racing, surely.
