BUILDING THE RHYS MILLEN RACING HYUNDAI GENESIS COUPE
LAS VEGAS, Nov. 4, 2008 In February, Rhys Millen Racing (RMR) approached Hyundai Motor America with a unique concept to introduce the all-new 2010 Hyundai Genesis Coupe to the aftermarket and racing enthusiasts prior to its spring 2009 on-sale date. The RMR-designed Art of Speed Genesis Coupe called for a vehicle with the visual impact to win awards at the 2008 Specialty Equipment Market Association (SEMA) Show while boasting sufficient performance to put the driver in the winners circle the following weekend. Backed by Rhys Millens reputation both on the track and in the aftermarket, Hyundai delivered its first prototype Genesis Coupe 2.0T to the RMR shop on August 8, allowing just 12 weeks of build time before the doors opened at SEMA in Las Vegas on November 4.
A crew of six RMR employees promptly stripped the car to bare metal. At the same time, the crew began custom-fabricating new aftermarket parts and accessories for the Genesis Coupe which are certain to be among the first available in the aftermarket once Hyundais newest addition takes to the streets next year.
In the weeks that followed, RMR developed a machine that retains the distinct, bold look of the Genesis Coupe, but adds flair with custom components on the exterior, a radically altered racing-spec interior and serious performance enhancements from under the hood all the way to the pavement.
Rhys Millen's RM-460 vs. The Dyno
Rhys Millen's RM-460 mid-engined Hyundai Genesis Coupe has advanced from
it's debut at SEMA. This week it was put on a Dyno for the first time at SR
Motorcars in Gardena, CA. Dyno Doctor Mitchell Pederson of
MP Tuning was at the controls. There were some solvable issues with such a
wild build but wait'll you hear 6000 RPM in the back seat of a coupe!

2008 SEMA: Hyundai Genesis Black Camo Coup
CHECK OUT MORE SEMA COVERAGE:
FOUNTAIN VALLEY, California — The wraps have been taken off the latest
customized 2010 Hyundai Genesis Coupe, revealing a menacing black
camouflage exterior, an APR rear wing and tinted taillights. The Genesis
coupe was tuned by Street Concepts and will make its sizzling 2008 SEMA
Show debut on November 4.
Hyundai confirmed in a statement that it will show off three modified
Genesis Coupes at the upcoming SEMA show. This latest version underscores
the Korean automaker's commitment to beefing up its performance-car
credibility. In early September, Hyundai said HKS USA will create a Genesis
Coupe 2.0t for SEMA.
Hyundai says the camo-swathed iteration of the Genesis Coupe was inspired
by the stealth fighter jet. The package also features a custom grille
design, Volk 19-inch racing wheels, performance tires, a modified
suspension and Brembo brakes. The 3.8-liter V6 engine, with an estimated
has been tweaked with a Magnaflow cat-back Exhaust and a cold air intake system.
Interior touches include carbon-fiber dashboard trim, a custom Infinity
audio system, Cobra seats and black suede accents.
Earlier, the Hyundai Genesis Coupe was expected to be delivered to dealers
in early February. But in Wednesday's press release about the Street
Concepts Hyundai Genesis Coupe, the automaker said the "production model
arrives in spring of 2009." The horsepower numbers on the
Genesis Coupe also appear to have been readjusted. Hyundai previously said
the V6 engine would deliver 310 horsepower and that the
standard 2.0-liter turbocharged inline
four-cylinder engine would deliver 223 hp. In its latest missive, it says
the four-cylinder will deliver 210 hp.
Rhys Millen's 750 HP V6 is bred to break Pike's Peak
Rhys Millen will attempt to beat the current "Unlimited Class" World Record
of 10:01.408 & the 10-minute barrier at the Pikes Peak Hill Climb. Last
June, Rhys took a Hyundai Genesis coupe to a class record in the two-wheel
drive Time Attack class with a 12:09.397. This year, Millen wants to take
the overall record back from Nobuhiro "Monster" Tajima, whose held the
record since 2007, and bested Rod Millen's thirteen year old course record.
Millen is aiming to get the first ever sub-10 minute time at Pikes Peak
and he and his team have built a new car dubbed the Genesis PM580, a 1,850
pound, 750 horse power V6 beast is designed specifically to conquer the 156
turns to the top and return the world record to the Millen name.
