The second of two SEMA cars from Hyundai that will be featured at the 2014 Portland International Auto Show is the Hyundai JP Edition Genesis Coupe. Hyundai teamed up with designer and builder John Pangilinan to create this one of a kind Genesis for the 2013 SEMA show. Pangilinan is known in the tuner community for selecting retina-bending color themes for his Hyundai SEMA concepts, and this latest Genesis Coupe is sure to bolster his reputation even further.
“John Pangilinan is really a creative genius in color development, especially in his ability to blend color with specific vehicle concepts like the Hyundai JP Edition Genesis Coupe,” said Scott Margason, director, product planning, Hyundai Motor America.
But this vehicle goes far beyond the good looks and well designed interior. It also features unique modifications to the engine and suspension including:
Within the engine bay, Pangilinan made the modifications many entry-level tuners choose for the most cost-effective power gains, such as an AEM cold air intake, ARK Performance exhaust, turbo downpipe, and friction-reducing Lucas Oil. To achieve that perfect ride height and body-to-wheel balance, he installed KW Variant 3 coil-overs, Whiteline sway bars, and an ARK Performance strut bar. Perfectly filling the wheel wells are 19-inch MORR VS52 concave mono-forged wheels in mystic black, with Toyo Proxes T1R 275/30 ZR19 front and 315/25 ZR19 rear tires. Muteki SR35 lug nuts hold it all together. Bringing the JP Edition to a confident halt is a Brembo Gran Turismo brake kit with oversized 15-inch calipers.
