500HP Blood Type Racing Veloster for SEMA Announced

Chicago-area tuner dances with the devil in their latest hatchback creation

Oct 7, 2015
Illustrator: Jon Sibal

For the Hyundai booth at the 2014 SEMA Show, Blood Type Racing (BTR) from Chicago displayed a pretty sick 800-horsepower, turbo, wide-body Genesis Coupe (photos below) which we were somewhat smitten with. This year, Hyundai has invited BTR back to Las Vegas for more, giving the tuners a Veloster Turbo R-Spec – and if the Jon Sibal rendering is any indication, we’re gonna love this one, too.

Dressed in a “Carbon Black” paint job with a red racing stripe running from the front splitter up onto the hood, the hatchback sports carbon fiber fender flares, front-mounted aero canards, front splitter, and a rear deck spoiler. For added wickedness, BTR went with red accents on the custom SSR three-piece wheels and red projector “demon eye” headlamps.

Under the hood there’s more evil, in the way of a fully built 1.6-liter “Gamma” four-cylinder mill, outfitted with new cylinder sleeves, custom rotating assembly, and Garret turbo, and making more than 500 horsepower. The interior has been stripped down and given the complete race-spec treatment, with a four-point roll cage, Sabelt bucket seats, harnesses and steering wheel.

A full listing of car specs are below; also, don’t forget to check out the Bisimoto Tucson and ARK Performance Genesis Coupe. The Blood Type Racing Veloster Turbo R-Spec will be revealed at Hyundai’s SEMA press conference on November 3 at 11:30 a.m. PT. Follow us and #HyundaiSEMA to keep up to speed on all of this year’s SEMA activity.

There is no denying Seiji Ookawara's Nissan Silvia is a head-turner. It's extremely low, it's extremely wide, and has a ludicrous amount of negative camber that screams for attention.
