Hyundai has announced that it will unveiled a 700+ bhp Tucson at the 2015 SEMA. The car is set to be unveiled in November and was jointly-developed with the guys from Bisimoto Engineering.
The SEMA Tucson has a 2.4 liter Theta-II engine that was equipped with a Turbonetics BTX-6465 billet turbocharger. The engine also has a new camshaft, high-performance fuel injectors and NGK Iridium spark plugs. Last but not the least is a new fuel rail, a custom exhaust system and an Infinity 6 ECU.
As a result, the 2.4-liter Theta-II engine can deliver more than 700 bhp. The car will be matted to six speed manual transmission that features a Stage 5 clutch.
Alongside the modified engine, the SEMA Tucson will come with an Air Ride suspension and unique 19-inch fifteen52 TARMAC-style wheels.
Inside the cabin, the 2015 SEMA Tucson will have Buddy Club racing seat, a Racepak IQ3 digital dash and a four-point roll cage.
"The 2016 Tucson was the perfect platform for this year’s build, offering me the opportunity to captivate a wider audience by tapping into the growing popularity of the CUV market. After hundreds of hours of testing and developing new engine components, we’re confident that this power plant can handle what we’re asking from it, delivering a fresh, race-bred take on the 2016 Tucson with performance and reliability at its core", said Bisimoto Engineering owner Bisi Ezerioha.Source: Hyundai
