Hyundai and Bisimoto Engineering are joining forces for the third year in a row, to create a 708 horsepower Sonata for this years SEMA show in Las Vegas. Last year, the Bisimoto's team, which specializes in extracting huge output from Hyundai's engines, has created the 1000 horsepower Bisimoto Genesis Coupe for the same show.

This time, the power gurus will be working on Hyundai's 2.4-liter "Theta-II" 4-cylinder engine. They will be using a combination of strengthened internal components such as forged pistons, connecting rods, a high-revving valve train and camshafts and high-boost turbocharger. The goal is to extract exactly 708 horsepower (520 kW) from the unit. The power will be sent to the road via six-speed manual transmission.

The team at Bisimoto conducted hundreds of hours of testing, failure analysis and prototyping. The result is 18 new products which will be engineered and produced in house to deliver the 708 horsepower. Furthermore, the Sonata will feature a special custom laminated body wrap and graphics, as well as extensive overhaul under the hood.

Rounding out the exterior credentials of the car are the Bisimoto front splitter and aero package, Fifteen52 18-inch aluminum wheels and the Burns stainless exhaust system. Inside, the interior has been given a sporty feel with the addition of racing harnesses, AEM wideband gauges and EK Autoworx interior paint.

2015 Bisimoto Engineering Sonata will offer space for four and will be revealed at Hyundai's SEMA press conference on 4th of November.
