A highly tuned and specially customised version of Hyundai's all-new Genesis sedan has debuted at this week's SEMA Auto Show in Las Vegas.

Developed by aftermarket tuning house ARK Performance, the new Genesis AR550 concept is driven by Hyundai's 313kW/520Nm 5.0 litre V8... with a few tweaks.

Thanks to the addition of a Rotrex supercharger - among other items - power in the AR550 is boosted to 410kW - or 550 horsepower. Torque figures have not been revealed, however.

This is ARK’s sixth Hyundai project for the SEMA show, and the performance tuner says it looked to the best from Germany’s Mercedes-AMG and BMW M divisions as inspiration for its latest prototype.

The AR550 gets a larger set of alloy wheels, lowered suspension, a Brembo brake package and performance Nitto tyres.

Style-wise, the AR550 gets wider front and rear bumpers, a carbon-fibre splitter and rear diffuser along with ‘AR Line’ headlights.

Interior fit-outs are designed to “provide the opulence of a private business jet”, including Katzkin custom ‘diamond stitched’ seats and door panels.

“The AR550 concept focuses on refined performance that integrates directly with Hyundai’s ‘Design to Empower’ vision for the Genesis Sedan,” ARK’s Lerry Liu said.

“[We] focused on the power, handling, and most importantly the sound of the Hyundai power plant, [and] we integrated our high-performance racing technology to introduce a very unique and bold Hyundai vehicle.”

The AR550 is joined at the 2014 SEMA Auto Show by a second high performance Hyundai, in the form of the 528kW Bisimoto Sonata.
