Hyundai has teamed up with performance tuners Bisimoto for the fourth straight year to produce its latest powered-up creation for the 2015 SEMA show in Las Vegas.
The pair hasn’t revealed exactly how much go the Tucson will drive away with, but another power output on the happy side of 500kW has been confirmed.
Needless to say, Hyundai is referring to it as the most powerful Tucson ever.
The same 2.4 litre four-cylinder engine that powers the regular Tucson remains in place, but Bisimoto has added stronger internals, an upgraded engine management system and a high-boost turbocharger.
Modifications include Arias 9:1 compression pistons, an upgraded camshaft, a high-flow fuel pump and filter along with a custom exhaust system.
Power reaches the road via a six-speed manual transmission with a performance clutch.
Away from the bonnet, the Tucson gets custom air-ride suspension, 19-inch white alloy wheels with Toyo performance tyres, a roll cage and a giant intercooler in place of the front grille. Bisimoto calls it the “street fighter” look.
“The Tucson was the perfect platform for this year’s build, offering me the opportunity to captivate a wider audience by tapping into the growing popularity of the SUV market,” Bisimoto owner and chief engineer, Bisi Ezerioha, said.
“After hundreds of hours of testing and developing new engine components, we’re confident that this power plant can handle what we’re asking from it, delivering a fresh, race-bred take on the Tucson with performance and reliability at its core.”
The 2015 SEMA show begins on November 3.
