RM460 Hyundai Genesis Coupe - Click above for high-res image gallery

Last week we first learned about the RM460, the mid-engine V8-powered Hyundai Genesis Coupe that is currently under construction at the shop of Rhys Millen Racing. Millen just a sent us a couple more photos of the progress being made on the car as the crew gets ready for its debut at this year's SEMA show in Las Vegas. The photo above shows the first and possibly only Genesis coupe with a rear hatch. Along the sides the vents to release hot air from the engine compartment are clearly visible.

The other shot we received shows the rear sub-frame carrying the engine block and transaxle. The sub-frame was removed to finish up the welding in spots that were inaccessible while it was installed in the body. By the time you read this, the completed engine should be installed back in the car so that the fabrication of the rear bulkhead can be completed. By the time it's completed, this should be one hell of a ride.
