Hyundai hopped on their PR wire to tease a new tuner notion they’re introducing at this year’s 2015 SEMA show in Las Vegas.
It begins out life as Veloster Turbo R-Spec and is then offered to Blood Sort Racing, who gives it a pretty wicked workover.
The modifications include a carbon-fiber wide body kit, total with an aggressive front splitter and canards, “demon eye” colored headlights, a carbon fiber rear spoiler, and red-painted 19-inch SSR Professor TF1 wheels, wrapped in fancy Toyo Proxes R888 tires.
The tuner look also continues inside with a 4-point roll-cage, four-point safety harnesses for the seats, a Sabelt steering wheel, and a Rockford Fosgate higher-end audio program.
It’s also has some go to complement the show as Blood Kind Racing also fiddled with the 1.6L turbocharged four-banger by fitting a large Garrett snail, a revised intake manifold, and even methanol/water injection. A custom-made intercooler gets fitted to assist the snail function a lot more efficiently, a sports-tuned exhaust program, and rebuilt internals to handle the stronger outputs. The outcome: 500hp.
Check out the press release soon after the jump.
BLOOD Kind RACING RETURNS TO SEMA, BRINGING ALONG A SINISTER VELOSTER TURBO
FOUNTAIN VALLEY, Calif., Oct. 7, 2015 – Blood Sort Racing Inc., the renowned Chicago-based tuner identified for his intense take on Korean vehicles, has revealed its Veloster Turbo R-Spec built for SEMA. The BTR Edition Veloster has an evil twist, made to appear as though it just switched over to the dark side. The car will be revealed at Hyundai’s SEMA press conference on November 3 at 11:30 a.m. PT, in Las Vegas.
The vehicle’s evil appearance began with a “Carbon Black” paint job, accented with a red racing stripe running from the front splitter up onto the hood. A carbon fiber wide-body kit offers the vehicle a muscular, much more aggressive stance, and front-mounted aero canards, front splitter and a rear deck spoiler provide down force at speed. Red accents on the custom SSR 3-piece wheels, along with red projector “demon eye” headlamps add a final demonic touch to the vehicle’s exterior.
Employing the Veloster’s 1.6-liter “Gamma” four-cylinder as a beginning block, BTR added new cylinder sleeves, a high-boost turbocharger from Garrett, and custom connecting rods and pistons. With a retuned OEM ECU working in tandem with the strengthened engine internals, energy output is now a lot more than 500 horsepower, preserving OEM drivability by way of use of Hyundai’s most recent GDI technology. The interior has been stripped down and given the complete, race-spec therapy with the addition of a four-point roll cage, Sabelt bucket seats, harnesses and steering wheel, along with audio upgrades from Rockford Fosgate and Tanabe OLED Revel gauges.
“The concentrate of this construct was to enhance the functionality capabilities of the Veloster R-Spec while making a single of the angriest-hunting Hyundai vehicles to chew up the pavement,” stated Sam Lee, Director of Advertising, Blood Type Racing, Inc. “The engine tune on this car is pushing the little-displacement motor to the edge. With a distinct output of 312 horsepower/liter, we’re pushing this tiny displacement motor close to Formula 1 levels of efficiency. We’ve developed a number of internal components to help manage the power demands of this new engine, and paired with our hunkered-down suspension and aggressive exterior visuals, this Veloster is assured to turn heads on the SEMA show floor.”
