Hyundai Rockstar Energy Moab Extreme Concept will break cover at SEMA 2017; gets several cuistomised body parts
Hyundai is ready to uncover a very aggressive and extreme off-roader concept at the upcoming SEMA 2017 later this month in Nevada, United States. Christened as Hyundai Rockstar Energy Moab Extreme Concept, it is based on the Hyundai Santa Fe SUV and the off-roader has been designed to take the challenge of running on some of the world’s roughest terrains.
To be specific, this off-roader has been designed to take on the treacherous terrains of Moeb desert in Utah. As the Rockstar team reveals, this particular modified off-roader uses Hyundai Santa Fe Sport’s platform and powertrain. The modifier has pushed the car to its limit to perform extreme tasks thrown at it.
Both the exterior and interior of this off-roader have been customised extensively. It dons a unique black paint scheme with attractive body graphics. The front grille and headlamps remain same, but it sports LED strips at the fog lamp housings, additional LED lamps at the centre of the front bumper. There is a custom roof rack with wide LED light. Also, it dons custom skid plates and updated bumpers with Warn winch.
This modified Hyundai Santa Fe gets several mechanical upgrades in order to run on rough roads. It runs on 17-inch Machete off-road bead-lock wheels with 35×12.50R17 Baja MTZ off-road tyres. The SUV is equipped with coil-over suspension and 2.5-inch internal bypass shock absorbers with reservoirs, 6-piston front and 4-piston rear brake kit. Apart from that, the modifier has also added custom intercooler, Rockstar Energy Catch can, MagnaFlow exhaust, Nitrous Express wet system, downpipe and cooler overflow reservoir.
