The all new 2012 Hyundai Veloster has barely launched and already its getting high praise for its robust fuel economy, edgy style, and topnotch build quality. Furthermore, the new three-door coupe has caught the attention of aftermarket specialists, who see it as a canvas for tuning on all levels.
This is a prospect for the new 40 mpg model that has everyone here at Hyundai of St. Augustine anticipating this year's SEMA Show in November. We say this because with the help of ARK Performance, Hyundai is planning to debut a performance-driven variant of the Veloster.
It has been officially named the ARK Performance Veloster, and it features a wide range of enhancements that are focused on increasing the performance of the Veloster, while also giving it a cosmetic flare that will make it stand out amongst the crowd. At a quick glance, the most immediately noticeable feature of the overhauled Veloster is its bright green and flat gray paint job. Other modifications that continue to capture the eye's attention include a new front lip, side skirts, rear bumper, and wide front grille and rear fenders.
Of course, the biggest thing that sets the ARK Performance Veloster apart from the rest is what's found under the hood. Namely, we're talking about its new Turbo Charger and Intercooler System, capable of increasing the horsepower from 138-hp to 210-hp!
"The Hyundai Veloster is an ideal car for enthusiasts with its distinctive design and dynamic architecture," said Ted Lee, owner, ARK Performance Inc. "At SEMA, our ARK Performance Veloster will bridge the realm between an affordable sports car and an extreme motor sports vehicle. From the first Tiburon, to the Genesis Coupe, and now with the Veloster, ARK Performance continues to uphold the torch as the pioneer of aftermarket performance manufacturing for Hyundai."1
