Lightbulb Teased: Custom turbocharged Hyundai Veloster to bow at SEMA

Filed under: Aftermarket, SEMA Show, Hatchback, Hyundai, Design/Style



After our first drive of the Hyundai Veloster, we described the three-door hatch as an 'eco-sport' rather than an 'all-out performance car'. The 1.6-liter four-pot under the hood produces 138 horsepower and 123 pound-feet torque, which provided 'adequately entertaining' acceleration. In other words, we wouldn't mind one bit if the Veloster got an extra dose of power.

The folks over at ARK Performance were thinking the same thing, and are set to debut a custom Veloster at SEMA in November with an extra dose of oomph under the hood. The additional ponies - 210 in total - comes courtesy of intercooled turbocharger system and a high-flow exhaust system. ARK has also worked over the rest of the Veloster with six-piston front brakes, coilover suspension system, custom Alcantara interior and a widebody kit with green and grey graphics.

You can check out the full list of upgrades after the jump, and be on the lookout for live coverage of the car at the SEMA Show come November.Continue reading Custom turbocharged Hyundai Veloster to bow at SEMA

LOL I almost traded my Coupe for one... But the whole losing RWD and a turbo doesn't really fit my driving habits maybe I will wait for the rspec to show up with a turbo in a few months.

Stock the Veloster is a great handling car, lightweight at around ~2700, it just needs that power bump to get it out of the "nice looking car but slow" segment. Pics to come at SEMA for the show cars..

Yeah when I test drove one I was beside myself with the lack of power, but for 45 mpg I wouldn't mind haha... Just so used to having TQ all the time in the coupe I would have to re learn to drive it feels like hahaha.

Looks good dressed out like that. Knew turbo version would be coming eventually & once it does, that will be a fun little car to drive. I agree with BoostedGen though & couldn't give up RWD. BTW My dealership is selling these fairly rapidly.
