Click above for a high-res gallery of the Genesis Sedans from SEMA

While the trio of tuned Genesis coupes have garnered their fair share of attention, these three Genesis sedans had a few tricks up their sleeves, beginning with the RKSport model above that benefits from a Hyundai-developed screw-type supercharger mated to the 4.6-liter Tau V8.

With 11 pounds of boost huffed into the bent eight, the RKSport sedan is putting out an estimated 460 horsepower, but with a new cylinder deactivation system, fuel mileage is equivalent to that of the V6-equipped Genesis. Hyundai made it clear that it hasn't made an official decision to offer the supercharger, but expect the cylinder deactivation system to be available in the future.

In addition to the engine mods, the RKSport model receives a custom body kit, composite hood, rear roof spoiler and trunk spoiler, along with Enkei LS-5 wheels, Baer brakes, a K&N air intake, Magnaflow exhaust and lowering springs.

Both the RIDES and DUB brought out their Genesis sedans to the show, and you can get up to speed below the fold and peruse the galleries for plenty of live and stock shots.

      Sweeeet.

      Give me the grey one with the supercharger.

      Actually I don't even need 460 hp, that is overkill for what kind of driving I would do in that thing. It would be more of a daily luxury cruiser, and I don't want to be tempted in using that power.

      The Tau V8 was designed from the start to be forced induction friendly. I think they are going to offer the supercharger but the bigger question is if they will use this world class blown sedan to launch a Hyundai Hi-Po brand

      Nice Lexus...

      even does it look like a lexus...its a good look ;)

      Look like a mix of the GS and LS.

      Nice Power also...460 is good for me

      That front grill makes the car more reminiscent of MB than Lexus.

      Impressive, but particularly impressive because of those fuel economy numbers. Granted, I'm of the opinion that anything less than 35mpg is meh (considering a CR-X was rated 45/50 way back in 1983). But you can't beat 460hp. I'd take one. :-)

      at 460 HP its more than enough for me. Competes with E 550 easily. or the BMW 550i.

      i really like the silver one, Hyundai did a pretty good job this year with their cars! Thumbs up!

      Sweet! Hyundai should make a Sport/RS/R/M-style version of the Genesis along the lines of this.
      • 6 Years Ago
      Hey, I'd drive it.
        • 6 Years Ago
        So now Hyundai has its own S-class as well as an AMG model.

        I love the Genesis. My only problem with it was its small for tall drivers and tight for big bodied drivers.
        The centerconsole could use a little redesign to make the main buttons look nicer, but pound for pound, this is still the best value you can get in a Luxury car.
