Hyundai SEMA Tuner Cars

Michael Evanoff, the product manager for three key small car platforms for Hyundai (the Hyundai Veloster, Hyundai Accent, and Hyundai Elantra) was able to speak with us at the SEMA 2012 show regarding a trio of intriguing special editions that the Korean automaker brought to the party.  One of these - the Hyundai Veloster Re:Mix edition - will be offered to 2,000 customers on a first-come, first-serve basis when it is introduced to the market in the near future.

Two of the other vehicles represent more a 'concept car' take on what is possible using Hyundai vehicles as a template.  The JP Edition of the Hyundai Veloster Turbo wears mint green paint, a wide body kit, and a number of other performance-oriented upgrades, while the Bisimoto Hyundai Elantra GT transforms the compact hatchback by way of a turbocharged engine that churns out a healthy 600 horsepower - an almost five-fold increase over the car's stock output.
