For the upcoming SEMA Show, Hyundai and the specialists at ARK Performance have joined forces and have prepared for the attendees a special concept vehicle called Legato Concept. The car is based on the Genesis Coupe model and will be shown at the event on 5th till 8th of November in Las Vegas.
As a matter of fact, “Legato”, which is an Italian musical term, means “tied together.” This very word conveys the integration of exotic design, tuned performance and luxury coupe interior ambience, which we on the other hand can see embodied in the car.
The exterior of the Legato Concept is inspired by the production Genesis Coupe, however – slightly expanded and in the form of a c concept. In addition, the car has undergone complete ARK Legato body treatment which incorporates front and rear bumpers, side skirts, deck lid and wide-body cues, for a truly unique and integrated exotic performance look. What is more, the racing silver exterior color optimizes the surface visibility of the concept’s nuanced design.
There was also done a performance tuning under the hood of this Hyundai. The production-based Hyundai 3.8-liter Lambda V6 engine is updated to 4.0-liters for 400 horsepower (295 kW) and 425 lb.-ft. (575 Nm) of maximum torque. To be more precise, inside the block, a Brian Crower (BC) 4.0 Stroker Kit with JE Pistons and BC 4340 crankshaft, connecting rods, and ARK oil cooler ensure maximum output with superior durability.
Furthermore, the ARK intake system and headers improve engine’s breathing at high rpm, while a lightweight pulley kit minimizes parasitic power losses from ancillary equipment. ARK dual-mass flywheel and carbon clutch kit deliver efficient power transferred to the road.
The Legato Concept also includes ARK DT-P coil-over suspension system coupled with lightweight Rays Engineering G25 wheels and Nitto NT05 tires. This of course ensures excellent dynamic grip. ARK’s carbon brake pads add fade resistance and stopping power.
Inside, the car is entirely transformed. The interior is a complete luxury performance concept that features Takata Drift Pro LE seats, AiM Sports Strada GT steering wheel, and digital gauge cluster, while the Rockford Fosgate premium sound system provides backup entertainment.
