Fox Marketing leveraged the outstanding reliability and performance potential
of Hyundai's 1.6-liter, 4-cylinder direct-injected, turbocharged Gamma
powerplant as the core of its SEMA concept. A comprehensive package of
advanced engine components, including a new 845 Motorsports turbo upgrade,
BorgWarner EFR turbo, front-mounted intercooler, AEM water/methanol injection
system, VP Racing 101-octane performance fuel and an ECU tune from
SeoulfulRacing, boosts output to an impressive 370 horsepower.

The addition of a UNIQ Performance strut brace, ImportShark chassis bracing
and fully-adjustable ARK Performance coil-over suspension ensure the Fox
Marketing Veloster Turbo puts all that power to the tarmac and keeps it flat
in high-speed cornering, while new Street Pro LE seats and Takata Drift III
4-point harnesses hold the driver firmly in place. Braking performance has
been improved with WP Pro EX6 6-piston front calipers with carbon fiber
ducting and 13.6-inch wavy-cut rotors for neck-wrenching stopping power.

Exterior modifications give the Veloster Turbo an aggressive demeanor that
perfectly complements the engine and chassis upgrades. A hand-mixed paint from
BASF color lab dubbed R-M Oynx HD Waterborne SkyAqua Pearl is the most
striking exterior component, while the addition of Hyundai Genesis fog lights,
an ImportShark front lip spoiler, custom rear fascia mesh and custom front
fascia round-out the bold exterior modifications.

"The Veloster Turbo was designed with affordable performance in mind," said
Scott Margason, director, product planning, Hyundai Motor America. "Fox
Marketing's unique concept showcases the versatility of our turbocharged
4-cylinder Gamma engine family while expanding the overall performance
envelope for the Veloster line."
