Hyundai Veloster Turbo Given 500+ Horsepower And An Evil Look For SEMA

It looks like Hyundai will have a crowded stand at this year’s SEMA Show, as the Korean carmaker is previewing a third project already.

Chicago-based Blood Type Racing, known for its extreme take on Korean vehicles, has revealed a first sketch of the Veloster Turbo R-Spec built for SEMA.

Described as having “an evil twist” because of its red projector “demon eye” headlamps and red accents, the BTR Edition Veloster features a “Carbon Black” paint job accented with a red racing stripe running from the front splitter up onto the hood.

A carbon fiber wide-body kit gives the car a more aggressive stance, while the front-mounted aero canards, front splitter and a rear deck spoiler provide down force at speed. The car rides on custom SSR three-piece wheels with red accents.

The cabin has been stripped out and given the full, race-spec treatment thanks to the addition of a four-point roll cage, Sabelt bucket seats, harnesses and steering wheel, along with audio upgrades from Rockford Fosgate and Tanabe OLED Revel gauges.

Power comes for the production Veloster’s 1.6-liter “Gamma” four-cylinder engine which has been reworked to produce more than 500hp. Modifications include new cylinder sleeves, a high-boost Garrett turbocharger, custom connecting rods and pistons and a retuned OEM ECU.

“With a specific output of 312 horsepower/liter, we’re pushing this small displacement motor close to Formula 1 levels of performance. We’ve developed a number of internal components to help manage the power demands of this new engine, and paired with our hunkered-down suspension and aggressive exterior visuals, this Veloster is guaranteed to turn heads on the SEMA show floor,” said Sam Lee, Director of Marketing, Blood Type Racing, Inc.
