This walk on the wild side is the culmination of ARK Performance and Hyundai joining forces to illustrate the tuning potential of the latest sport compact hot hatch. Built for the SEMA Show, the Veloster has been attacked under the hood, under the chassis, inside and out. The Veloster’s 1.6-liter four has been boosted via a custom turbo set-up featuring a twin-scroll turbo, trick FMIC and custom exhaust system.
The number we hear is 210 horsepower but that sounds conservative to us. The chassis has been sharpened via race-spec coilovers, lightweight custom control arms, beefy anti-sway bars and big brakes. Rolling stock consists of Yokohama Advan RZ Gunmetal wheels shod with Nitto NT05 tires. The most bitching mod has to be the custom widebody aero kit that includes over-fenders, front and rear fascias and rockers. Inside the usual suspects are on-call; custom interior, rollbar and custom lighting.
