Hyundai has displayed a customised high performance Santa Fe as well as an Ioniq at the ongoing SEMA in Las Vegas
Hyundai has showcased some spectacular cars at the ongoing SEMA 2017 show in Las Vegas. While the customised Santa Fe and a high performance HyperEconiq Ioniq grabbed eyeballs, the South Korean brand has also revealed a tuned Elantra Sport with an unique body kit.
This special one-off Hyundai Elantra Sport comes wearing several aerodynamic efficiency enhancing accessories. These include front and side splitters made of carbon fibre, sporty large alloy wheels and a rear spoiler as well. The suspension has been modified as well lowering the ride height of the car. The Aeroteck bodykit includes a revised front and rear bumper.
The car runs on high performance Toyo T1 tyres wrapped around the 19-inch wheels. The custom paint job with fiery orange gives it a very distinctive and eye catching appearance. Not only at exterior, inside the cabin too, this modified Hyundai Elantra Sport gets several updates.
These include a carbon fibre steering wheel, updated seat and upholstery delivering sporty vibe. As Hyundai claims, the HSD coilover suspension along with a new sway bar, strut brace and a chassis brace are the other modifications, this sedan has received.
The car also sports new and larger brakes offering improved stopping power. On the powertrain front, it gets the standard 1.6-litre turbocharged engine that comes with the stock specification. But, it comes with methanol injection now.
Apart from that, other modifications include cold air intake, new custom exhaust system and an ECU as well. The ECU is tuned by Blood Type Racing like the rest of the car. Hyundai claims, despite so many modifications made to the car for performance upgrade, it is still a very much daily use car.
