Rides Hyundai Genesis Coupe at the SEMA Show

At this year’s SEMA Show, Rides joined forces with LUX Design in order to take the Hyundai Genesis Coupe to another level. The special kit consisting of a new front fascia, rear bumper, grille, sideskirts and vented fenders was created by Sarona Design and is completed by the Vossen 20-inch VF051 rims that sit wrapped in General Exclaim rubber. The car features now also a Porsche 911 GT3 RS orange paint while the roof was refinished in matte black. Under the hood, the 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine received some improvements such as a Turbonetics GT-K 350 ceramic ball bearing turbo swapped onto the block along with a Spearco front-mount intercooler to keep intake temps down. The GReddy Racing Ti-C turbo-back exhaust improves the high and midrange performance of the vehicle. In order to keep it safe, StopTech brakes were installed on all four corners while the A’PEXi coilover kit not only lowers the Coupe to its aggressive stance, but stiffens up the handling for when you’re pushing the bends.
