The supercharged Tau V8 engine in the RKSport/Hyundai America Technical Center, Inc. (HATCI) Genesis Sedan is sure to be one of the main attractions at Hyundai’s SEMA display. The supercharged Genesis is powered by Hyundai’s state-of-the-art 4.6-liter Tau engine, which produces an estimated 460-horsepower with the help of an IHI screw-type supercharger and 11 pounds of boost for performance driving. It also boasts advanced cylinder deactivation technology, which further improves efficiency and fuel savings at cruising speeds, delivering an estimated 18 miles per gallon in city and 27 miles per gallon on the highway.
The exterior of the RKSport/HATCI Genesis is designed with a European look and feel. The Platinum Silver color scheme highlights the body kit, exterior components, clean lines and contours of the vehicle. Styling modifications to the RKSport/HATCI Genesis include a composite hood, polyurethane front lower fascia, rear lower fascia, left and right side skirts, plus a composite rear roof spoiler and trunk spoiler. RKSport partnered with well-known aftermarket companies to add Enkei Performance LS-5 wheels, a Baer performance brake package, K&N performance air intake, Eibach lowering springs and a Magnaflow performance exhaust.
