Hyundai believe it or not has become a powerhouse at the SEMA Show for their well produced concept vehicles, enlisting the help of well known tuners who go all out.
Renowned tuner John Pangilinan, takes the 2016 Tucson and creates the “Adventuremobile.”
It blends Westfalia outdoors love with the power and modifications you expect from the performance import crowd. In army green with tent, it should get plenty of explorers.
Rockstar Performance Garage also brings their take on the 2016 Tucson, creating the ultimate off-road build for the new crossover.
It gets a bumper-to-bumper overhaul with a 6-inch lift, 32-inch Mickey Thompsons, and a fully-custom off-road suspension.
Bismoto’s 2016 Tucson is said to be the most powerful one ever created.
A built 2.4-liter turbocharged engine and six-speed manual transmission put down more than 700 horsepower to the wheels. Lowered with too many race mods to list, it’s safe to say this won’t be coming to a showroom.
Blood Type Racing brings their handcrafted Veloster Turbo R-Spec which has a pretty well done visual makeover to go along with its list of performance mods.
These all support a custom built version of its 1.6 liter turbocharged engine cranking out some 500 horsepower.
The now venerable Genesis Coupe gets a healthy massage by ARK Performance in a concept they call Solus.
It has a wider look with the company’s wide body kit. The interior also has been given a complete makeover with a redesigned dashboard, race-bred steering wheel and gauges.
While most of these Hyundai concepts are over the top, past precedent has been that SEMA show vehicles inspire some of what arrives in the showroom.
We’ll see if anything from this year’s collection gets the nod.
