COSTA MESA, Calif., Oct. 22, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --Hyundai teamed up with
California-based tuner, Bisimoto Engineering, to develop a one-of-a kind SEMA
show car. In the Elantra GT's first concept appearance at SEMA, Bisimoto gave
the car a complete re-working with an emphasis on outrageous performance
gains. Starting with forged Arias pistons, Bisimoto con-rods and Turbonetics
turbocharger, AEM water-methanol injection and Bisimoto high-pressure
injectors, the Bisimoto Elantra GT is one of the highest specific-output
Hyundais ever created, muscling 600+ horsepower out of the 1.8-liter "Nu"
engine family powerplant. This concept will be unveiled at the 2012 SEMA Show
with a variety of other Veloster and Genesis Coupes under the Hyundai banner.



"At Bisimoto Engineering, we strive to deliver the most performance wrapped up
in the most unexpected packages," said Hedi Kim, Vice President, Sales &
Marketing, Bisimoto Engineering. "When the Elantra GT was introduced by
Hyundai, we knew it would be a perfect platform for us to showcase our tuning
prowess. With our experience in forced induction and small-displacement
engines, we focused on raw horsepower with this SEMA concept. We think the
final product is a great example of just what can be achieved with
turbocharging and engine tuning in the present day."

Besides the engine upgrades, the Bisimoto Elantra GT hosts an extensive list
of interior and exterior modifications. Building upon European design cues,
the Elantra GT adds an ARK custom body kit, a JFN full roll cage, Bisimoto
racing seats and harnesses, and custom interior. This concept is an assault on
the senses that promises to be a must-see at this year's SEMA show. The
