There are six modded Genesis' planned for SEMA: three coupes, three sedans. The coupes have been worked over by Street Concepts, HKS, and Rhys Millen. A rendering of the first tricked-out Genesis sedan from RKSport has rumbled onto the page, and it looks less like competition for the 5 Series than it does a challenger to the Death Star. The Platinum Silver sedan will wear carbon fiber accessories and a couple of spoilers as it hunkers on its oversized TSW wheels.

RKSport's take on this car is to raise the performance stakes, and it's going to have Hyundai's help doing it. The whipped cream on the sunday will be a K&N air intake, Magnaflow exhaust, Eibach springs, Baer brakes, and a body kit. The sunday itself consists of performance upgrades that Hyundai is giving to the car's Tau V8 engine. The Korean automaker is hush-hush on those changes, but they're probably good for a bump in the numbers in all the right places. And since you can't drive the cars at SEMA, they'll probably look and sound pretty good, too.

      The Genesis has big tuning potential. Start with black or white. Do 20% tint, 20s (black with chrome lip), lowered, a low key bodykit, and it would look quite nice.

      Nice.

      I would change some details, and pick different wheels, but I was waiting to see what someone would do with this new V8 Rear-driver.

      Black out the headlights, too.

      next up... somebody put a dual-clutch gearbox in it...

      I wish they'd kill the grill, once and for all. It still looks like Worf's forehead: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Worf

        I kinda like the grille. It does look klingon.

        But it looks better than the blandness from Lexus and Toyota, and the oddities from Honda/Acura.

        At least it is a bit distinctive.

      Looks sharp. Stock, the Genesis is a cool car, so these souped up ones just take that greatness up a few noctches.

      Wow, Hyundai, who 22 years ago came here with the cute little Excels, is now making a V-8 supercar! Go Hyundai!
