Hyundai will reveal a 480-hp concept version of its Genesis Coupe at the upcoming SEMA Show.

Auto shows often provide designers and engineers an opportunity to play the game of “what if?” and nowhere more so than at the SEMA Show, the annual gathering of aftermarket suppliers that also brings out some of the wilder concepts and show car ideas from automakers like Hyundai.

And, when the show opens up in Las Vegas just in time for Halloween, the Korean carmaker will have a trick up its sleeve that will provide fans of its Genesis Coupe a real treat: the Hyundai Genesis Hurricane SC.

The result of a two-year development effort, it’s a 480-horsepower version of the sporty Genesis Coupe, with a supercharger strapped onto its 3.8-liter V-6 to bump up its stock 306 hp by nearly 60%.

The project was hatched by HATCI, the Hyundai America Technical Center Inc., which teamed up with Magnuson Products, Rhys Millen Racing, Harman International and Torvec Inc. to develop and build the prototype.
