Motor Trend logo Motor Trend 10/4/2014 Jason Udy

ARK Performance has been building Hyundai show cars for SEMA for several years and this year is no different. The tuner is bringing the 2015 Hyundai Genesis AR550 sedan to the 2014 SEMA show complete with engine, chassis, and cosmetic upgrades. Highlighting the build is a supercharger that bumps the 5.0-liter V-8’s output to over 500 hp.

The supercharger and supporting hardware bring the stock 5.0-liter V-8’s power rating up from 420 hp to 550 hp. In addition to the Rotrex supercharger, the 2015 Genesis AR550 sedan gains ARK Performance pieces including a cold air intake, downpipes, high-flow catted test pipe, GRiP exhaust system, race spec driveshaft, and AR Line carbon engine cover. The engine management system has been tuned to work with the supercharger and other performance parts.

An Airrex air suspension system works with the ARK bits. The 2015 Hyundai Genesis AR550 sedan rides on a set of ARK lightweight forged alloy wheels wrapped in Nitto Tire NT05 summer tires. A Brembo brake kit on both axles handles stopping duties.

As with other SEMA show cars, the Genesis AR550 sedan features cosmetic upgrades. An AR Aero package from Infinite Auto design includes wide front and rear bumpers with carbon fiber accents to match the widebody front and rear fenders, carbon fiber side skirts, and trunk lid. Other exterior pieces include crystal projector headlights and exterior welcoming lighting. Inside, the Genesis AR550 sedan features Katzkin custom diamond stitched seats and door panels.

The 2015 Hyundai Genesis AR550 sedan is the sixth Hyundai ARK Performance has built for SEMA. Past builds include the Veloster Turbo Alpine concept and the Genesis Coupe Legato concept.
