Hyundai has already released sketches and information for some of the show cars that it will have on display next week at SEMA, and with the show rapidly approaching, we're now getting a brief glimpse of the build progress for four of the custom machines. Bisimoto, John Pangilinan and ARK Performance have gone to work on the Genesis Coupe, while ‚ÄčEGR Group is in the process of putting its touch on a Veloster Turbo.

We don't yet get to see any of the cars in their completed state, but Hyundai has released a video to show how things are shaping up. Bisimoto's 1,000-horsepower Genesis Coupe (shown above), for instance, required the development of more than 36 new components, including a special intake manifold and connecting rods. Hyundai's video is posted below, but stay tuned next week as we'll have plenty of live coverage from the SEMA Show floor.

      Of the hundreds of cars that will be at SEMA, why is Autoblog fixated on this Hyundai junk?

      The Genesis Coupe is the most underrated sports car on the market.

        Buy getting rid of the turbo 4 screws it up for the after market.

          I know you're just trolling, but who the heck overrates them? Hyundai make a good little sports car and the media never mentions them when comparing cars against the BRZ/FRS. It's always Miatas, Mustangs and used M3/S2000s. To be fair, if it were my money, I'd opt for a BRZ/E46 M3/S2000, but I do think its a shame I don't see that many GC's.

          What does Honda have? Nothing.

        The Genesis Coupe begs the question "why BRZ?" Then you see the misfortune of it's front facia... Why Hyundai? Why?

          I'll agree with that, the 2010-2011 models look much better from the front. Just need to take the hood (because I hate fake vents) from the 2010-2011 model along with the front facia and slap it onto the 2013 model and it'd be all I could ask for styling wise from an internal and external view.

          Take a good look at the front of a BRZ straight on. IT has the exact same styling on a smaller scale. The bumper has an opening that 'stretches' over the 'bones' of the bumper underneath. The GC looks great in person and no one even notices this same treatment on the BRZ.

        It really is, not to mention a stellar value

      Insert the 'haters gonna hate' meme in here. Why do you think the BRZ/FR-S even exists? To compete with the Genesis Coupe. I'd still take the Genesis Coupe over a BRZ strictly because I don't need a track only car, I'd rather have something that has all the great creature comforts I'd expect from more of a touring type sports car. I'm not saying it's the best car on the planet by any means, but it's a pretty damn good car for the price range it's in. Anyone who discounts Hyundai, at this point, as not being a legitimate manufacturer, needs their head checked.

        Having driven the FRS and a new Genesis Coupe on several trips, I'd have to agree the Genesis is nicer to daily. For better or for worse, it is a more comfortable car and definitely the better touring car. When fitted with the V6, the additional torque is also pretty noticeable (plus I thought it makes a nice deep but subtle noise when fitted with a proper aftermarket exhaust, unlike the annoying constant Subie-boxer drone the FRS can have. If you've ever been stuck in a WRX with a cat-back for long trips, you know what I mean). Personally, in the end, the FRS is still the car I'd still want in the end simply because I thought it was more fun to drive, its compact dimensions come very handy in SF, and I thought the comfort level was no different than a Corollas (acceptable but nothing you'd boast about). But if I were to go on a long road trip, it'd be the Genesis hands down.

        You lost me at "haters gonna hate". Couldn't read the rest of the comment after that uneducated grammar-garbage.

        I have high hopes for Hyundai, but their suspension tuning still needs to catch up and their drive train's need to be more efficient. A Genesis still beats a BRZ though, unless you just want handling and nothing else.

        LMFAO @ BRZ/FRS being a "track only car". Those cars are nothing more than RWD versions of your typical 90's or 2000's under powered, odd styled, Japanese 4 cyl FWD coupe. Its cheap to buy and cheap to run - if you buy into the "handling" or "drifting" stuff you're a fool. The chevy sonic handles better (fact)

        How pathetic to actually hate a brand of anything. You'd be much happier in life if you tried to be positive.

      Did he say "reliability of a street car"? Yeah if you compare it to a Geo. My friend has this car, he got it new and it's not even been a year when we noticed that it rattles inside EVERYWHERE! And something's rattling in the turbo area. He doesn't drive it hard either. Idk what reliability this guy's talking about... This 1000 hp is not gonna be reliable.

        The turbo models are known for vibration and squeaks/rattles, but this has nothing to do with reliability. Build quality sure.

      I love all the Hyundai hate here. So much misguided angst by people who probably drive 15 year old Civics of minivans.
