Last week, Rhys Millen Racing’s (RMR) made a few dreams come true at the 2011 SEMA Show. They modified a Genesis Coupe using Hyundai’s most powerful engine under its hood – the 5.0-liter Tau V8. The RM500 Genesis Coupe is a 450-horsepower machine with a distinct, production-ready look.

In addition to the V8, the all-black Genesis Coupe received a custom RMR titanium tip exhaust, oil cooler and rear differential cooler.

The RMR RM500 also unveiled a new line of RMR products for the Genesis Coupe, featuring a RMR carbon front lip, carbon spoiler, carbon rear diffuser, carbon side skirts, carbon fog light ducts and carbon grill. The Genesis Coupe also showcased 19” HRE 793-RS wheels, Hankook Ventus R-S3 tires and Brembo carbon ceramic rotors with Brembo six and four piston calipers. The inside of the vehicle features the RMR suede trim package and Sparco accents.
