There are few things in this realm or the next that can't be cured with the judicious application of forced induction. Just ask the engineers at the Hyundai Technical Center. They were able to take the Hyundai Genesis Coupe and wring more than 450 horsepower from the vehicle's 3.8-liter V6 engine. The result is the Genesis Hurricane SC we saw at this year's SEMA show, and Hyundai has turned out a new video of the high-performance coupe to show off every last detail.

As you may recall, the Hurricane SC is more than a blower. The vehicle features a liquid-to-air intercooler, Bilstein monotube shocks coupled to adjustable ride control springs and Brembo six-piston calipers squeezing cross-drilled rotors. The vehicle also received a full aesthetic makeover to go with its impressive innards: a new front bumper, grille, hood and side skirts.

If you like what you see, you're in luck. Hyundai says that Rhys Millen is planning to produce a range of aero pieces for the Genesis Coupe similar to what's on the Hurricane SC. Follow the jump to check out the video.

        jj72 excellent point and this just shows which direction each automaker is taking. Hyundai is now the Asian brand to beat.

      From the comments below showed how a brand who started from steal and rip-off designs from others can never escape their own crime. It doesn't matter how great they have become, they are still a poser and an inmitator who appeared to be a lower class automaker to most people. It doesn't matter how fast your Hyundai goes, your still a loser. ( so as Camry drivers...............)

        From BDolman's and your comment, it shows how ignorant people are to how far Hyundai/Kia has come since 10 years ago. What's an inmitator? Are you speaking hick? Were you trying to say "imitator"? Please, explain to us actual educated individuals how Hyundai is imitating other manufacturers. Loser signifies someone who doesn't have a job, a girlfriend, lives with their parents, and has no friends. Yet, every Genesis Coupe owner I've met, I've noticed that they have a bit of money, steady jobs, incredibly gorgeous girlfriends, and have their own place with bunches of friends. Hell, I've even seen this with people who own Tiburons. I've not once seen this "loser" you claim Hyundai owners to be.

        Nothing says, "I really have no idea about the auto industry other than my 15 year old assumptions and prejudices" more than ragging on Hyundai. Get yourself a subscription to some auto-mags and start educating yourself. Toyota is too big = more problems, Honda is losing out on quality and practicality and both losing awards to American and Korean cars. Times are changing.

      I don't understand the hate for the 2013. I think the front end on the current model is it's biggest downfall. Looks like something from the 90s.

        the pre 2013 facia fit the rest of the design.. it was cohesive. with the new one they literally scrapped the idea and frankenstined the new facia on.

      I worked on this car personally. It was a great build for the very first project HATCI did. I think they'll be bringing a lot of very interesting custom projects to check out now. I was more than happy to be a part of this! Just the Lexicon Audio system in this thing costs about as much as the car itself. There was quality parts used throughout. Not bad for the first crack at it HATCH!!!

      This is what the coupe should always look like, not like the 2013 refresh model. The front is much more cleaner and recognizable then the 2013. I rather have someone confuse it as a bently (wing badge) rather than someone coming up to your car and asking if it's the new elantra.

        The current Genesis looks really good... who decided to transplant a Veloster's mug onto the '13?

        Not a single punctuation mark in that entire "thing" you just typed. You opinion is somewhat devalued when you can't form your thoughts into a simple sentence. From what I can gather, you think everybody in the world hates Hyundai in spite of the fact that it is "so damn good car never breaks down," which I'm assuming is a good thing. Well bud, nobody's hating. Actually, nobody cares. No jealously.

      It wouldn't surprise to see this type of power output coming from an R Spec Gen Coupe.

      They could actually offer this as an aftermarket option with manufacturer's warranty.
