Hyundai And Bisimoto Tease Tricked-Out Sonata With 708-HP
Hyundai and Bisimoto Engineering are partnering for a third straight year to create something for the SEMA Show in Las Vegas.
This year it will be a 708-horsepower Hyundai Sonata that they will work on.
Hyundai’s 2.4-liter Theta-II 4-cylinder is what the team will be using as the focal point.
Many of the internal components – connecting rods, forged pistons, etc. – will be strengthened and combined with a high-boost turbocharger and flex-fuel to deliver the 708-hp.
The finished vehicle will also feature a 6-speed manual transmission and will be revealed at a press conference on November 4 at 9 AM.
He said that achieving such power was impossible without reliability, which is exactly what the Sonata brings to the table.
Bisimoto gave the Sonata a custom laminated body wrap and graphics to match the overhaul with the engine.
The interior got a definite sporty upgrade with the addition of racing harnesses, AEM wideband gauges, and EK Autoworx interior paint.
A Burn stainless exhaust system and Fifteen52 18-inch aluminum wheels help complete the sporty styling.
