Hyundai announced recently that it will show a Rhys Millen Racing version of the Equus at the 2010 SEMA Auto Show next month. The RMR Signature Edition Equus will include exterior, interior and performance upgrades that will enhance the already luxurious sedan.
Exterior changes to the Equus include front chin and rear deck spoilers, carbon mirrors and a two-tone carbon fiber and "Red Bull Racing blue" paint job, plus 21-inch HRE wheels.
A new intake and exhaust system add 30 hp, for a total of 415 hp from the 4.6-liter V-8, while 14-inch front brake discs bring things to a halt. It’s not our cup of tea—we’d have attached the Korean-market hood ornament and called it a day—but it should be right at home among the bewinged and neon-lighted creations that dominate SEMA.
The car also gets two-tone carbon-fiber mirrors, front and rear spoilers and a leather interior with suede accents. It rolls on 21-inch wheels.
RHYS MILLEN RACING BUILDING SIGNATURE EDITION EQUUS FOR SEMA
Visitors to Hyundai's SEMA booth will be treated to the latest customizations from Rhys Millen Racing as his modifications to the company's new flagship sedan will be unveiled. The RMR Signature Edition Equus will include exterior, interior and performance upgrades that will enhance the already luxurious sedan.
"This is the third consecutive year we've partnered with Hyundai to bring a must-see car to the SEMA Show," said Rhys Millen, owner, Rhys Millen Racing. "The intelligent luxury platform of the new rear-wheel drive Equus is a perfect vehicle for tuners who have graduated from other segments and want to work with the best the automotive industry has to offer."
The Equus will showcase exterior RMR Signature Edition components including carbon mirrors, and front chin and rear deck spoilers. A two-tone carbon fiber and Red Bull Racing blue satin clear paint by BASF and HRE 21-inch P40 wheels will appropriately round out the exterior.
Tuners aiming to get even more power from the stock 385 horsepower, V8 engine to the wheels will get a glance at a bolt-on RMR Signature Edition air intake and stainless exhaust that together will add another 30 horsepower. The RMR Signature Equus will also feature a 14-inch brake kit designed to tame the 415 horses.
The interior of the Equus will feature RMR Signature Edition embroidered headrests and floor mats, and ostrich hide leather seats with suede accents.
The RMR Signature Edition Equus will be shown in the Hyundai Booth along with other specially designed cars exclusively built for this year's SEMA Show.
