Click the image above to view the video after the jump

Yesterday we saw the raw, in-car footage of Rhys Millen's assault on Pikes Peak behind the wheel of his Time Attack-prepped Hyundai Genesis Coupe. Today, we finally get the edited eye-full entitled "Climb Attack," stitching together Millen's 2WD record-setting run into a high-definition, artfully-crafted three-minute flick. Make the jump to check it out, and we'd recommend a set of headphones to get the full-on sensory experience.

      I still find it pretty amazing that Hyundai set the record here, being relatively new to the competition and with a very new car. Kudos to those Koreans!

        They won their class in 1992 with the Scoupe Turbo, so this is more like a return to glory.

        All about the team!

      As always great work on the video Will. StreetFire was silly for letting you go.

      Make sure you watch the HD version, dim the lights, and turn up the sound.

      Excellent video, and sweet ride.

      Amazing run in a 2WD vehicle on the different surfaces with just one set of tires to handle it all!

      Hmmm rip of from the Ari Vaten Climb Dance, why cant hyundai get original with the marketing effort, good track effort though

      That was very artistically done, nice racing for the team. Good stuff with the record.

      The other video was better. This one is too disjointed due to all the jump cuts. They have some nice shots in there, but they need to restrain themselves more when it comes to switching between them.

      As is, you don't even get a feel of the car progressing up the mountain (perhaps because virtually the entire part of the run below the treeline is removed).

      Much better production than the Gronholm video.

      very nicely done video. It's impressive what theyve been able to do with this car in such a short time.

      I'm glad that this video doesn't have any crappy song. Just the sound of the engine revving is music to my ears.

        My thoughts exactly!
