SEMA 2014: Blood Type Racing Brings First Rocket Bunny Genesis Coupe To SEMA. Adds 1000HP For Good Measure.

SEMA is definitely the place for a shop or performance parts business to make a name for themselves.  The problem is that thousands of other shops and performance parts businesses are out at the show trying to do the same thing so the best way to stand out is to do something really crazy and one-off.  Chicago-based performance shop Blood Type Racing Inc (BTR). set out to do just that when they took on a Hyundai Genesis coupe project for SEMA.  It looks like they didn’t have any particular theme other than going completely bonkers on all ends of the spectrum with their Korean coupe.  Don’t believe me? Look under the hood.  You’ll find an engine with 1,000 crank horsepower thanks to a long list of engine upgrades including a massive turbo and nitrous system.

Outside BTR enlisted the help of the now incredibly popular Kei Miura AKA the creator of Rocket Bunny to design a wide body kit for the Genesis coupe.  The body kit dubbed RE:MAKE added an extra 40mm of width in the front and a whopping 60mm in the back. BTR then filled the fenders with a set of custom fit WORK wheels and dumped it all on a stance suspension system.  Then the car was sprayed with a particularly bright shade of candy red paint to demand even more attention.  The Genesis coupe also has a full interior but the seats were replaced with Saebelt bucket seats, steering wheel, and racing harness.  A roll cage from Cusco was fitted and that was all she wrote.  The result is an incredibly crazy fast, powerful, and eye catching Korean sports car.  Rumor has it that BTR spent over $60k transforming their Genesis coupe from stock to what you see here.  Do you think its money well spent?  Take a closer look by clicking on any of the thumbnails and browse the official spec sheet below then let us know your thoughts in the comments.
