All lights now are on ARK Performance which has released some details around their SEMA-bound project. Tuning company's Genesis AR550 sedan is getting readied for the iconic show and more importantly, taking the 2015 Genesis V8's great performance to a whole new level. This is the sixth project for the customizing specialists, involving a Hyundai vehicle modification for SEMA. So this year they have decided to inject the Genesis with performance characteristics on par with German super-sedan rivals like Mercedes-Benz AMG and BMW M.

Of course, being familiar with ARK's other projects, we know that they focus on the combination of supercharged power with head-turning design, which sets a new standard for Hyundai performance. The exterior for instance now features several modifications in order to accommodate the larger wheels.

This wider stance, coupled with a lowered suspension setup that results in more aggressive appearance. "AR Line" exterior modifications feature front and rear wide bumpers and fenders, a carbon fiber splitter and rear diffuser and AR headlights. Inside, the car has also been revised. The business jet-like interior is accomplished through Katzkin custom diamond-stitched seats and door panels.

The car uses Hyundai's 5.0-liter V8 engine as the powertrain's foundation. ARK Performance has added to it 130 horsepower via the inclusion of a Rotrex supercharger and ARK free-flow exhaust. The new ARK-developed suspension setup reduces body roll and delivers sportier ride. The Brembo Big Brake Kit with Nitto Tires it what rounds-out this customization.

ARK Performance Hyundai Genesis AR550 will be unveiled at Hyundai's SEMA press conference on 4th of November.
