Leading up to the 2011 SEMA Show, Hyundai has already announced two performance-driven variants of the all-new 2012 Hyundai Veloster. Now, the South Korean automaker's hot streak continues as they've recently announced fiercely styled and retuned variant of the already popular 2012 Hyundai Genesis Coupe, which has thoroughly impressed everyone here at Manly Hyundai.
The 2012 Hyundai Genesis Hurricane has been in development for nearly two years by Hyundai America Technical Center Inc. (HATCI) and a slew of aftermarket specialists, including Magnuson Products, Rhys Millen Racing, Harman International and Torvec Inc. They worked on everything from supercharging the engine to refining the exterior and everything in between, resulting in an improved Genesis that will rock you like a hurricane! Sorry, but we really couldn't resist the Scorpions reference.
