Hyundai has already shown us its GoGoGear Racing Genesis Coupe and a Rhys Millen Racing Equus. Now we get two more looks at what they're bringing to SEMA this week. Hyundai has teamed up with DUB Magazine and Mummbles Marketing on a pair of Equus sedans.
The new project comes from Mummbles Marketing and is a radical proposal. First off, the tuner promises to squeeze 450 hp out of the saloon’s V8 engine, using a turbocharger kit. To cope with the extra power, the vehicle will also offer updated brakes and suspension.
Mechanical mods include an Air Lift digital air suspension with extended air springs and struts, Wilwood brakes and 22-inch Work Equip wheels with Falken FK452 ultra-low-profile tires.
For the engine, the tuner will offer a new turbo kit and a new Magnaflow dual-exhaust system, plus some new brakes and a new suspension system. The engine will be pumping out 65 more hp than the V8 found in the current Equus and 21 hp more than the 5.0-liter Tau V-8 powered Equus due to the work done on the turbo kit by Mummbles, Legacy Innovations, and S-Max.
One very cool feature of this car is the Apple iPad control center that can be used to operate some of the features such as ride height, luxury curtains, stereo and windows.
