The twisted minds at Bisimoto Engineering took one look at the 2013 Hyundai Elantra GT and said, "Nice looking car, but , really? Only 148 horses out of 1.8 liters?"
And, with help from the folks from Hyundai, they began constructing the most outrageous Elantra ever built. Active ingredients include forged Arias pistons, Bisimoto con-rods, a Turbonetics turbocharger and an AEM water-methanol injection system with Bisimoto high-pressure injectors. All of that turns the respectable hatch into a monstrously obscene 600-horsepower beast.
"We focused on raw horsepower with this SEMA concept. We think the final product is a great example of just what can be achieved with turbocharging and engine tuning in the present day," says Hedi Kim, vice president, sales marketing at Bisimoto Engineering.
With that much power comes that much more of an opportunity for someone to hurt themselves with this thing. So with safety in mind, Bisimoto bolted in a JNF roll cage and a coilover suspension and sway bar. Racing seats and harnesses keep driver and passenger in place while the 18-inch Buddy Club P1 Racing SF wheels do nothing more than nicely fill the wheel wells. Aesthetics are further improved with an ARK custom body kit and some flashy Bisimoto graphics.
Expect Bisimoto's hellacious Hyundai to appear soon at the 2012 SEMA Show. Check the press release below for details.
