SEMA 2012: Ark Hyundai Genesis Coupe R-Spec Track Edition

by Oct 11, 2012All News, Hyundai2 comments

Hyundai is again teaming up with ARK Performance to create an ultra-high-performance track edition based on the Genesis Coupe R-Spec model. The ARK super-tuner track edition will debut with the Hyundai brand at the 2012 SEMA show.

This special ARK model takes the new Genesis Coupe 3.8-liter, direct-injected engine to an impressive 395 horsepower at 6800 rpm, with axle-flexing torque of 340 lb.-ft. at 5400 rpm. From the exterior, the ARK design theme takes the muscular character lines of the Genesis Coupe to the extreme, with race-like flared over-fenders, an aggressive front splitter, and carbon-fiber hood with heat-extractor vents.

“The Genesis Coupe R-Spec is an ideal platform from which to build our SEMA track edition” said Ted Lee, owner of ARK performance, Inc. “The ARK Genesis Coupe R-Spec truly demonstrates the full track-tuning potential of the affordable Genesis Coupe R-Spec model. ARK continues to represent the ultimate in aftermarket performance tuning for Hyundai.”


While the exterior is impressive, the ARK Genesis Coupe goes far beyond exterior cosmetics, with significant under-hood performance modifications, a race-like interior environment, racing differential, tires, brakes and suspension. The comprehensive list of ARK performance enhancements include:

    This looks pretty aggressive, and the power increase is quite a nice perk. Can I get one without the flares, ground effects, lower profile tires/wheels, and road scraping suspension…. Just the driveline in bright blue or red; please!
