With no less than seven tuned Hyundai Genesis Coupes on display at SEMA this year, there's no shortage of bolt on bits to add more show and go to the Korean blaster. Of all the big names taking a spanner to Hyundai's first foray into the RWD sports car segment, the HKS example looks (from this distance) to be the stand-out.

It looks fat and gives us an excellent insight into what add-ons may be available for the Coupe when it finally appears down-under.

Rather than taking a page from the rest of the Genesis coupes on display, the HKS example is rocking JDM Style visual enhancements. Ken Style, aerodynamic partner for HKS Time-Attack cars, created the low-slung body kit.

Thankfully, HKS has seen fit to match the cars performance with its looks and has fitted a GT2835R turbo upgrade on a stainless tubular manifold to the 2.0 litre turbo-charged four-cylinder. That's not all rev-heads, HKS has also fitted its super-sequential blow-off valves, stainless cat-back exhaust, carbon fibre airbox and intact piping, intercooler, Super Fire spark plugs, and Hipermax III fully adjustable suspension for good measure.

While official power and performance figures have not been released, the above goodies list is enough to have us salivating at the prospect of the HKS Hyundai Genesis Coupe making it over here.

Things are shaping up exceptionally well for the local release of Hyundai's new hero car. We can't wait to turn the key on one of the most exciting vehicles ever to wear a Hyundai badge.
