1,040 HP Hyundai "Santa-Fast" for SEMA Revealed #TENSEMA16

Modified Veloster also joins the lineup

Hyundai has added two more vehicles to its SEMA roster and says it will unveil a "skunkworks race project" at the show. The automaker didn't share more details about the special project, though there's a good chance it'll be related to its new N performance brand.

In the meantime, Hyundai unveiled its "Santa-Fast" concept, created through a partnership with the tuners at Bisimoto. "Santa-Fast" is a fairly substantial build that involved swapping out the front-drive drivetrain for a rear-drive setup featuring an Equus-sourced rear diff. Bisimoto bolted a custom, twin-turbo kit to the 3.8-liter V-6, which churns out 1,040 hp thanks to 39 psi of boost. Better yet, the engine is bolted to a six-speed manual transmission (from a Genesis R-Spec). Other mods include KW suspension, Fifteen52 Tarmac R40 wheels, Toyo R888 competition tires, and Buddy Club brake kit.

Hyundai Gurnade Veloster Concept

Also making an appearance at Hyundai's SEMA booth is the Gurnade Veloster concept. The build is based on a Veloster Turbo and features an intercooler, cold-air intake, and tune from 845 Motorsports, and an ARK Performance cat-back exhaust. NEO Motorsports provided the coilovers and brake kit, and the wide body kit comes from Lightner Motorsports. The concept rides on Rotiform 19-inch OZT, three-piece forged wheels wrapped in Toyo tires.

Earlier this month Hyundai revealed two other concepts headed to SEMA. The first is an Elantra built for the race track, and the other is a wild, off-road-ready Santa Fe created by the folks at Rockstar.

The show must go on, as they say, and so that’s exactly what organizers of the much-loved annual Tokyo Auto Salon did, taking the 3-day event that usually happens in Chiba’s Makuhari Messe convention center and translating it (metaphorically, not literally; it was still largely in Japanese) into both streaming video and 3D.

Super Street: Anytime we talk about a vehicle prototype, the overwhelming response, once some of the initial smoke has cleared (and people are done cursing out the manufacturer and demanding that their design team be fired immediately), centers heavily on claims that the production car will look nothing like the demo car. In some cases,

You know the name Joel Tan (@jt_built) from his wildly popular SR20DET-swapped, ‘40s-era Willy’s Jeep that mingles among the top of Super Street’s most popular feature cars of all time, and we expect his 1972 Nissan Skyline GT-R and Toyota Trueno of the same birth year will also have a lasting impression. Both cars feature

The “most powerful 3-cylinder in the world,” applied to Toyota’s much talked about GR Yaris still sounds a little strange when you hear it, but you can’t deny the nasty 250+hp and over 260 lb-ft. of torque that are delivered through an eager AWD system, all packed into a relatively lightweight (by modern hatchback standards)

As if to pour a little salt into the wound that the hottest hatch in ages, the AWD Toyota GR Yaris, is not being brought to North America, the interwebs has begun to conspire against us by teasing us with modified versions from some of the biggest tuners in the biz. In December, those sneak
