2013 ARK Performance Legato Concept Coupe

HYUNDAI JOINS FORCES WITH ARK PERFORMANCE TO CREATE LEGATO CONCEPT GENESIS COUPE FOR SEMA SHOW

COSTA MESA, Calif., Oct. 7, 2013 – ARK Performance, a core Hyundai SEMA partner in recent years, has developed a new Legato Concept based on the Genesis Coupe that promises to add to its successful SEMA legacy. The performance luxury coupe concept will be showcased at the 2013 SEMA show in Las Vegas, November 5-8.

'Legato' is an Italian musical term meaning 'tied together,' conveying the seamless integration of exotic design, tuned performance and luxury coupe interior ambience. From the exterior, the Legato Concept takes the design themes of the production Genesis Coupe and expands them to concept car levels, while retaining the integrity of the original design. The complete ARK Legato body treatment includes front and rear bumpers, side skirts, deck lid and wide-body cues, for a truly unique and integrated exotic performance look. A racing silver exterior color maximizes the surface visibility of the concept's nuanced design.

'The ARK Legato Concept demonstrates the compelling appeal and versatility of the original Genesis Coupe production concept,' said Mike O'Brien, vice president, product planning, Hyundai Motor America. 'ARK Performance has taken this original concept and expanded its appeal to the most demanding premium coupe owners at a whole new level.'

While the Legato exterior sends a powerful exotic car message, the performance tuning under the hood and wheel arches more than backs it up. The production-based Hyundai 3.8-liter Lambda V6 engine is stroked to 4.0-liters for 400 horsepower and 425 lb.-ft. of stoplight-launching torque. Inside the block, a Brian Crower (BC) 4.0 Stroker Kit wîth JE Pistons and BC 4340 crankshaft, connecting rods, and ARK oil cooler ensure maximum output wîth superior durability. An ARK intake system and headers enhance engine breathing at high rpm, while a lightweight pulley kit reduces parasitic power losses from ancillary equipment. For power delivery, an ARK dual-mass flywheel and carbon clutch kit ensure efficient power transfer to the pavement.

With the Legato concept at speed, an ARK DT-P coil-over suspension system coupled wîth lightweight Rays Engineering G25 wheels and Nitto NT05 tires ensure outstanding dynamic grip, while ARK carbon brake pads add fade resistance and stopping power. The Legato interior is a complete luxury performance concept that includes Takata Drift Pro LE seats, AiM Sports Strada GT §teering wheel, and digital gauge cluster. A Rockford Fosgate premium sound system provides backup entertainment whenever the exhaust note is at less than full song.
