Hyundai Tiburon Tour

Oct 4, 2002

The 2003 Tiburon Tuner Tour is a 10-event promotion, displaying Hyundai's newest sport compact performance coupe to its target audience. The Tour consists of a performance-tuned Tiburon equipped with an Injen Air-Cooled intake, APC exhaust, Brembo brakes, Eibach springs, ALT wheels, Yokohama tires, Sparco seats, pedals and steering wheel, four-point roll cage and removed rear seats. Local Hyundai dealers are involved at all events by supplying a stock Tiburon for comparison. Summer Slam spectators could sign up for an internet-based sweepstakes for a chance to win a Tiburon.

The "Celebrity Grudge Match" at the IDRC Summer Slam Nationals between Christian Rado and Stephan Papadakis was awesome. Steph was driving the semi built, red six-speed Tiburon while Chris was stuck with the Silver automatic Tib. They both first pulled up to the burnout box. The announcer began to talk about the Tib's hot looks and 181 horsepower. Both drivers got out of their cars and proceeded to yell at one another, harass each other, and get the crowd all riled up. They both got back in the cars and Steph let loose with a huge smoky burnout that continued well beyond the tree. Chris had a cute little one.

When the smoke settled, both cars lined up. After staging, Chris took off first, leaving the line way early. When Steph finally realized what just happened, he launched, caught and passed Rado and the silver Tiburon. Check out the sweepstakes at www.tiburonsweepstakes.com or at the following venues.

Sept. 21-22 NOPI Nationals-Atlanta, GA
Oct. 12-13 IDRC - Phoenix, AZ
Oct. 26-27 NHRA - Pomona, CA
Nov. 23-24 IDRC - Palmdale, CA

There were Hondas on deck at Tokyo Auto Salon, but Osaka Auto Messe has a way of highlighting some of the older chassis—the classic chassis—the ones you and I love seeing built.
