Hyundai is certainly bringing the horsepower wars to Las Vegas next month. We already know that its SEMA lineup includes a 1,000-horsepower Genesis Coupe, but now the company has announced that it is teaming up with Fox Marketing to create a 370-hp Veloster Turbo.

Keeping the Turbo's 1.6-liter engine, this show car gets an extra 169 hp by adding a bigger turbo and intercooler, cat-back exhaust and nitrous and methanol injection... oh, and the engine runs on 101-octane racing fuel. The brakes have been upgraded with six-piston calipers and bigger rotors, while the suspension now includes adjustable coil-overs. And since this is SEMA, this Veloster Turbo gets the requisite flashy exterior styling.

Scroll down for the full press release, but we'll have some better shots of this Veloster in just a few weeks.

FOX MARKETING VELOSTER TURBO ROUNDS OUT HYUNDAI'S SEMA SHOW LINEUP

COSTA MESA, Calif., Oct. 23, 2013 – Hyundai has joined forces with Fox Marketing Cars to create the most powerful street-focused Veloster Turbo ever. The car will be showcased at the 2013 SEMA show in Las Vegas, November 5-8.

Fox Marketing leveraged the outstanding reliability and performance potential of Hyundai's 1.6-liter, 4-cylinder direct-injected, turbocharged Gamma powerplant as the core of its SEMA concept. A comprehensive package of advanced engine components, including a new 845 Motorsports turbo upgrade, BorgWarner EFR turbo, front-mounted intercooler, AEM water/methanol injection system, VP Racing 101-octane performance fuel and an ECU tune from SeoulfulRacing, boosts output to an impressive 370 horsepower.

The addition of a UNIQ Performance strut brace, ImportShark chassis bracing and fully-adjustable ARK Performance coil-over suspension ensure the Fox Marketing Veloster Turbo puts all that power to the tarmac and keeps it flat in high-speed cornering, while new Street Pro LE seats and Takata Drift III 4-point harnesses hold the driver firmly in place. Braking performance has been improved with WP Pro EX6 6-piston front calipers with carbon fiber ducting and 13.6-inch wavy-cut rotors for neck-wrenching stopping power.

Exterior modifications give the Veloster Turbo an aggressive demeanor that perfectly complements the engine and chassis upgrades. A hand-mixed paint from BASF color lab dubbed R-M Oynx HD Waterborne SkyAqua Pearl is the most striking exterior component, while the addition of Hyundai Genesis fog lights, an ImportShark front lip spoiler, custom rear fascia mesh and custom front fascia round-out the bold exterior modifications.

"The Veloster Turbo was designed with affordable performance in mind," said Scott Margason, director, product planning, Hyundai Motor America. "Fox Marketing's unique concept showcases the versatility of our turbocharged 4-cylinder Gamma engine family while expanding the overall performance envelope for the Veloster line."

          It says SEMA in the title. Why point out that it is a show car? Idiot.

          shoving 370 hp in a FWD (!!!) showcar is absolutely fantastic!

      I've spent time with both a regular Veloster and a Turbo and have come to the conclusion that the BEST kind of Veloster is the kind that's been crushed and cubed to be recycled into parts for a WRX/GTI/Focus ST/Anything that isn't a Hyundai Veloster.

      with that much torque going to the front tires, you could steer this thing with your right foot ;)

      This would be something if converted to all wheel drive and some gearing changes were made.
