COSWORTH DEVELOPS ULTIMATE PERFORMANCE HYUNDAI GENESIS COUPE CONCEPT FOR 2012 SEMA SHOW

2012 Cosworth Genesis Racing Series
World-class Racing Tuner Cosworth Takes Hyundai's Rear-drive Platform
To its full Potential and Beyond
2012 Cosworth Genesis Racing Series
Hyundai chose the world-renowned engineering design and manufacturer, Cosworth, as a development partner to create the ultimate Genesis Coupe known as the Cosworth Genesis Racing Series (CGRS). The eye-grabbing blue Cosworth CGRS concept will be showcased with the Hyundai brand at the upcoming 2012 SEMA show.

2012 Cosworth Genesis Racing Series
This special Cosworth-tuned model takes the new Genesis Coupe 3.8-liter, direct-injected engine to racecar levels, with an impressive 389 horsepower at 6400 rpm, and tire-shredding torque of 325 lb.-ft. at 5100 rpm, all with daily-driving civility. From the exterior, the Cosworth design theme radiates a retina-bending satin-gloss blue finish, aero front splitter, gunmetal-finish lightweight racing wheels, integrated rear spoiler, and blackout rear diffuser. While unmistakably race-oriented, the Cosworth concept retains the original Genesis Coupe design language, focusing most on astounding performance gains and real-world performance potential.


'The rear-drive Genesis Coupe is simply a great platform from which to build our ultimate Cosworth Genesis Racing Series street model,' said Nicole Armbrustmacher, director of marketing, Cosworth Americas. 'The Cosworth Genesis Racing Series Coupe truly demonstrates the purpose-built performance potential of the affordable Genesis Coupe line. We're proud to partner with Hyundai for this ultimate racing series model.'
